+1. I'm just not a fan of the colored wheels that don't match the overall paint color. It looks tacky but to each their own.

Hmm ok. I can't buy the car kit, because they don't ship it to Europe.

Ok, I'll do the hood and trunk in another color anyway, but thank you for that, I think 4 is enough.
How was the result? The pictures looked good. No orange skin?

I'd imagine he means orange peel, that textured feel when paint isn't prepped propely

Thinking about plasti-dipping my roof black, has atone used the glossifier? Does it actually work? I jus don't really want the flat or matte color.

not solely on the prep work, but mostly the spraying of the paint itself, and the way it was finished. im thinking about doing a matte clear on some parts for winter like that evo in the member gallery

NICE CLEAN S4!!!!!
i bought my car kit from dip your car.com and got it for the suv size.
i used 4 gallons of black on my car. the more coats you use makes it easy to peel off. i ripped all mine off the whole car in 2hours. heres some pics of it
