Looks like the you need another one or two coats of orange. The black is still bleeding through, particularly on the driver's door.

Don't have a picture of the 08, but here's two of the diesel in matte orange. Turned out pretty swell.






Can't you just order from Dipyourcar.com?

Well yeah, we ran out of plastidip whilst doing this. We should have put down 2 more thick coats at least.

jerseytiger...that orange looks pretty sweet! I have only seen the black white and red plasti dips over here. I am going to have to do some searching for the orange.

That's not my car, I was just quoting the original post. Plasti-dip isn't my thing, though IMO it would have looked a bit better if there were a couple more coats to cover the black. Also not a fan of two tone, particular with glossy and matte finishes. Would have looked a bit better IMO if they did the entire car, or did the black section with black plasti-dip. It is an interesting product so I enjoy seeing what people come up with. And since its not permanent different combos and techniques can be attempted, which is really cool.

Not trying to hurt more feelings or instigate a debate but, why wouldn't you guys just use real paint or vinyl for this? This is coming from a person who loves the temporary material too.

Paint is permanent and at least $500 for a **** job and as much as $5000+ to do it right. Vinyl will cost about $300+ for materials and require a minimum of 12 working hours and potentially much more if your inexperienced. Plasti-Dip is $100 for the cans or the sprayer kit is under $300 (I think). Also, the prep work is very minimal and an entire car can be done in 6 hours or less! And of course, it's not permanent.

I mean if you're going to change the color of your wheels often like octavios did a page back then it makes sense... but for exterior parts that are going to take a beating in the elements why wouldn't you use a stronger material that actually sticks? IE saying something like clear coating a plasti dip exterior object just doesn't make sense to me unless it's the texture you're after because the undercoat will most likely come loose eventually.

The good thing if you're doing vinyl on your whole car is that you don't have to deal with spray variables, and you can take your time w/o taping off anything and make sure its right, plus all you need is a hair dryer or heat gun.

Even paint isn't permanent though you can always sand lightly and respray! (here i'm mostly referring to painting smaller ext accent items like wheels, bumpers, roofs, spats etc).

Now don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE proponent of plasti dip for the interior parts because they're not exposed to the elements! Anyway don't want to hate on the thread I love seeing new things and colors but just curious of the material qualities and uses in this case. Dip on, young jedis!!

@tanktheory, I saw a nice rustoleum flat white primer you might be interested in when I was spraying my bike... I went with a flat black but there was a nice flat white too you might want to take a look at.

Just a heads up, dipyourcar.com has a 20% off everything coupon on their site until tomorrow, i think. Shipping is pricy though. If your going to get it anyway might as well while they have a 20% off coupon.

Finished the rims today and installed the hella horns, and hood scoop. The horns stand out much more than i thought, and a lot more in the day time.



iPhone took it blurry, ill update it tomorrow with more light

I just plasti dipped over the vinyl windshield decal. It was black but had some text on it. Called too much attention. Came out pretty good. Ill post pics tomorrow.
Then I hooked up my homie's 2012 civic with blacked out badges. It came out so clean.

TIP!! Buy one of the clip-on hand sprayers by Rustoleum. Really makes spraying Plasti dip easier and comes out nicer.

The center part under the grill is painted on the WRXs the same color as the rest of the car. I dipped it black like the STi's come stock.
