Default Black Plastidip NB

I have a buddy from the car club who has a brother that does some dip spraying. I've seen a few cars he's done, and decided to give it a shot. He charged me $100 plus materials (we used about a gallon) which I figured was a helluva deal. Was sick of forest green.

There are a couple spots on the hood that came out a bit rough, but for the most part I'm pretty happy with it.

And now.. PHOTO DUMP!

only 1 gallon to do a color change...that seems a bit low. I went from gloss black to satin black and to get the recommended number of coats on the car took 2 gallons. But I did also dip the hardtop and wing so that might make up for some of the difference.

The gallon was EMPTY. And there are a few spots that are a bit light. I would probably recommend getting 2 gallons to anyone doing this--especially if you're doing any sort of color change other than "super dark green to black"

I would really advise spraying another gallon on there... the problem is when you try to take it off it won't peel well. It will come off like you are peeling sunburnt skin. We made that mistake on my brothers Prelude and it took a few days, a lot of dip dissolver, a pressure washer, and a plastic razor to get all that **** off...

But it looks good tho!
