Blue/Black plastidip

Default Plasti dipped my Impreza 2.5RS baby blue and black!! AGAIN

Here it is guys! I recently plasti dipped my car over the weekend. I plasti dipped it flat black last year and this year I wanted something that stood out. So I did this with a wagner paint sprayer and used 3 gallons. 5 coats. Also I wrapped my roof with carbon fiber vinyl and rims were done with matte black plasti dip spray cans. Any questions please feel free to ask!

Headers installed! >>>

BEFORE!!!


AFTERS!!!

I never said it was for everyone, narrow minded people wont get it but people that see it as a cool project to change the color of your car anytime you want would see the benefits!

Im not a big fan but mainly because the tinted tails and painted stock wheels, just comes off very childish, like I would put money on it that youre under 21 by the look. Its your car so do what you like, I think the dip clear gloss would make the paint look better as well. Just constructive criticism.

im definitely not under 21 haha. and im all for constructive criticism but if you see in the title it says "plasti dip" and your not a big fan of it then you should probably not even look at it. Doesnt make sense. People always post stuff they have done to THEIR cars it does not really matter what others think. I like it and thats all that really matters. People on Nasioc are just dicks and NEVER have anything nice to say

Well done. Did you use cans? Or did you get the spray gun from dipyourcar? I think the roof would look nicer blue.

I used the wagner paint sprayer for the full car and rattle cans for the rims. Personally the roof I can never get it evenly done so I figured easier to wrap in vinyl lol

Looks well done, and I don't hate plasti-dip, just don't like this color on your car, that's all. My ****ty opinion.

That sounded like it came right out of a ricers mouth dude.


Anyways, I like lighter blue cars....... if they have a decent amount of subtle mods on the exterior. I think you should have done the roof too. It would look better without the smoked tail lights. And those ricer retrofit fogs.

Definitely not a ricer, but thanks. Nothing against anyone that owns one either. Just dont understand how people can be so close minded and not open to new things when people do something "different" to their OWN damn cars. Either you like it or you dont, people just need to be RESPECTFUL. That is all.

^how can you tell the tails are tinted badly from these pictures? They look fine not my style but they look like they were done good. And how can you be sure it's eBay exhaust? Give the guy a break lol. Paint job looks sick I would never do it but this is one of the best "dipped" cars I have seen.

Its not my style, but hey, it's his car so props for doing what you want even if others don't like it. I don't know how long you have had the lights tinted, but you may want to see if they are legal in your area. I had tinted lights when I was younger and kept getting pulled over. Granted, they were pretty dark.

I think you did a good job with the plastidip, I like the color. It's just the rest of the car I can't stand. Lose the tails, lose the black stock wheels, get a stock grill, get black housing head lights, get oem fogs, gets some decent wheels, and get coils. BOOM you now have an attractive bugeye.
