What does the finish 'feel' like? Is it smooth or does it have another consistancy to it?

There we go! Pics work and damn...that looks really nice. I'm also wondering about the texture. Does it feel rubbery, for lack of a better term?

How does this stuff hold up, and what does it set you back?

Pricing varies by color. I have $200 in dip, 3 gallons. I need at least 1 more. I owned the gun already. Holds up pretty good.

OP your car looks great!

I'm really impressed with this stuff. At a recent car show there was a PlastiDip booth that had a Mercedes Benz in the same exact color as you went with. They also had a BMW M5 in the same booth that was "dipped" before and had it removed to show there are no negative side effects. They quoted me a price that was under $1k and should last for about 3 years. They also told me it holds up well against rock chips. Pretty cool stuff! I have a BMW E30 that may get dipped since it's alpine white is about 22 years old

You could do your own car 4 times for $1000. I doubt you'd want in on for 3 years. This stuff holds dirt like a sponge. It will start looking dingy after a while.
Especially if you drive it every day. White would be the worst.

What all did you do for prep? I would love to do this since I travel a lot. Any sanding? Very interested in prep work. I've painted a few cars and it's all in the pre prep and post work. So if this is pretty simple I'm all for it.

^^^From all the videos I've seen all you have to do is wash the car before with soap or use the predip spray they sell. No sanding at all. The first coat is what makes it bond to the body, like 50% transparency since its the thinnest coat. Then from there you put as many coats you want to put on. I Havent done my car yet but have done a couple sets of rims, and this stuff is really forgiving. Cant wait to do my car.

I washed the car, and then used the pre dip spray. I then let the car sit outside and continue to dry for a few hours. I cant stress how important that is. If you have access to a compressor, blow the water out from underneath the antenna and the windshield squirters. No sanding. I covered what all was taped off earlier. I spent probably 3 hours doing prep work and an hour and a half peeling areas afterwards.

Probably around 5-6 hours from start to finish. Clean up would have been easier if I would have taped off more. I would have saved myself easily an hour or more on clean up. It was fun though.

Such a sick looking car. Nice to see a new color being used (not saying anything wrong with white or black, I like the white) but the blue suits it well. Kudos

When you decide to peel this off and return to factory paint does it peel off in large sheets or is it small bits at the time?

This, I'm also curious. If it feels like truck bed liner, I want nothing to do with it. But if it feels like smooth vinyl, I'm all for it.

Regardless, it came out awesome and I love the color. Great job!
