Not any fan of anything rattle canned, but I gotta say, after watching a few of these videos, I'm really intrigued. I just wonder how flat this stuff lays down.

Better with gloss maybe?

Look at how heavy they're laying on the paint at 1:41, I can't imagine that's going to dry into a decent finish.

Also, poking through some Google search resuults, there doesn't seem to be a clear consensus on how long this stuff lasts.

I will disagree. Some douche drove his S4 to the shop when I was installing my muffler it did not in any way felt or looked shitty.

What's the mix for the light teal?

I bought a car that was plastidipped the same color the OP's Miata a couple months ago, and there will be dip in crevices, around pieces of trim and between the lights and the fenders/ quarters/ trunk lid for the rest of this thing's life. The big flat areas peeled off very easily, but despite the stuff being blazed on VERY thick, it still won't come off of the little crevices and between body panels without a battle. I won't EVER use this stuff on another whole car, and I'm SOOO glad that I peeled this car before dipping my Miata.

we already hit that topic. That is our 24hr of lemons car. Soviet did the majority of the initial build on it. I am currently maintaining it for our next race. It is a shockingly bad-*** machine! It is not an SE-R though. It is the 1.6L B13. In my opinion it is better than the SE-R though. less power = less heat/stress on all components= less likely to break.
