Wow@the whole PD car. Full commitment, talk about going big or going home. Looks slick. Have you had any regrets? I don't have the pair to do that to such a new car.

Why not? It doesn't affect the finish in any way. Honestly, it's not a bad idea in terms of keeping paint in good shape.

Can you buy plasti dip at a local place or is it something you have to order online?

My closest home depot doesn't have it... They are dumb anyway. I guess I'll try another one.

I've emailed them like three times they have never answered me back. It's sad how crappy they apparently are at getting back to possible customers.

anyone know if plasti-dip would work on the springs of my subaru? They are really rusty and need paint and I think standard paint would be too brittle and crack as the spring flexes.

that 2.5i looks pretty smooth and even from the pictures, only thing i didnt like about plasti dip (only did the rear strip) is that its very sensitive to waxes and other similar products. i marred my plasti dip very easily and just ended up removing it. i literally touched it with a rag with waxed residue by accident (when cleaning the surrounding areas) and the plasti dip just picked up a white streak that would come off no matter what. seemed durable tho, i power washed the **** out of it first to test the strength and it never even chipped. maybe next time i'll try more thin coats

Decided to spray my extra bezel set the other day, and I love how it turned out. Sorry for the poor quality pic:

last cross-post:




SPT exhaust tips/bells plastidipped. I am very satisfied with how it turned out. Much better than the shiny look.


And that blue wrx looks sweet. I would love to do that to my car to help protect the paint, since you can just peel it off when you are done. Too bad I have a clear bra. Looks great though, I'd like OD green, or a darker blue.

Pastidipped my stock wheels. I enjoy the way they turned out. Car is lowered on BC BR coils with GTSpec rear arms.

I just read the whole thread in one sitting so please forgive me if anyone already answered this question:

For the people who painted their HVAC knobs, how did you mask off the tiny bit that lights up on the ring?

Masking Tape and an exacto knife. But, I also think that of you were careful and just painted and knew what to look for (pay real close attention before you get too many coats so you can still see the whole "light") that you could just do it without taping and still cut out the plasti dip and peel it off the lit section.

it was honestly just the color I used, it was a gunmetal from dipyourcar.com. I actually saw someone with it done in black and it came out great. For me though? back to the regular old color :P

Just did my grille surrounds. I think it makes the car look more aggressive from the front. What do you guys think?http://www.flickr.com/photos/81369481@N08/7982742129
