Ive had the car for a total of 8 weeks now and love it. About 2 weeks ago I got talked into doing a Custom Plasti Dip by a friend of mine who owns a dipping shop. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but it came out nicer then I could have ever expected!

The Color is a custom color made local to me called Hulk Green Pearl. The entire dip is abour 2 Gallons of Matt Black base and 1 Gallon of the Hulk Green Pearl with 50grams of the Hulk Green tint in it.

Pics: (will get good ones this week and swap out. Been getting snow all week)







All in all im loving the car, and it gets an almost obnoxious amount of attention since I dipped it. Well see how long I keep the dip, but for now, its fun!

All mature and respectful Feedback is welcome

PlastiDip is turning into one of the easiest ways to modify the appearance of the car. How much did you pay for the dip and everything involved with the dipping?

Sadly Im sworn to secrecy for my pricing. But retail (canadian remember ) for the base coat (2 gallons of matt black) and the one gallon of pearl + the green all in would be roughly $1500.

Car looks fantastic! Gotta say though $1500 is a crazy price for a plastidip job! I hope that's not accurate.

Canadian money my friend. The economy, and subsequent pricing, is much different. Especially where i live.

Keep in mind though, thats for a pearl color. A flat single color is closer to 1000-1100 range. The pearl and coloring and added labour makes a difference.

I paid less then what a single flat color costs retail though so its all good
