Nice! That's bad ass man. Let us know how it holds up. Does it pose a risk to your factory paint if/when removed?

I dont do it professionally, just took my time. When you take it off, I have found that the paint under it actually looks better than it did before. Its like a stick on clay bar!

There are also two videos a few pages back that I posted of removal, and the paint actually looks cleaner than before. Its all about an even thick build-up so you can actually peel it off!

Did you use anything to thin the Plastidip before applying it?

I used the pre-thinned gallons from dipyourcar.com. Next time I will buy the dip myself and thin it. Most people use a 1:1 ratio.

Hmmmm... I wonder what they thin it with and whether or not it has long term affects on the paint. I've seen a couple places where people say that it has made their paint somewhat hazy, with the clearcoat ending up not as "clear" as before? IDK just curious

Can't say I've been an overall fan of orange but you sir have done a hella good job of showing me some cars do fit it. Looks sick man

My project for the past weekend. Did the stock '06 rims and the grill surround. Painted the calipers while I had the wheels of. Great cheap way to make your car look good. Love this stuff!!

You painted your calipers with plasti-dip?

Do you have any idea how hot those bad boys get? Calipers require high temp materials.

Can you guys chime in on how this matches the oem dash in a 05 sti? (black)

I want coat my gauge pod with it, but it has a good bit of crevices that are hard to dust off. Does dust stick to the plasti dip pretty good?



This is actually the same color as mine (and the same gauge pod actually).

It's def not a bad match, but i think the difference is the kicker. Is there a somewhat glossier finish that might match better?

If you spray close to the surface the layers will come out more glossy. normally dust sticks pretty good to it. can probably clean it with a brush tho. if you dont like it you can peel it off.

Just ordered a wheel kit from dipyourcar.com

Does anyone have experience with their shipping? How long does it usually take? I'm trying to get my wheels dipped before winter mode.

I'm thinking about dipping my front lip white, but I've read time and again about how the white gets filthy. Anyone try a clear layer on top of the dip to help with clean-up and dirt resistance?

I've read about this matte clear, but I haven't seen it.

Can't remember if I posted mine up or not. Did my car a while back.





And did a tutorial on the process:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=h4NUjVh3zTA

It was a fun project. So far it's been about 2,000 miles and two months. I've been on the highway with it quite a bit, and I've scrubbed the hell out of it in the car wash, and it still looks new. Definitely a good investment if you just want to clean up the look of your car (which I obviously had to).
