Dipped BMW's

Thread to post up pictures of Plasti Dipped BMW's.

If you don't like the idea of covering a BMW or any car in Plasti Dip then please just stay out of this thread.

It's pretty much the same thing as a vinyl wrap except it is a lot easier to do and looks just as good if not better when done correctly.

Please only post up BMW's

Here you go....

apparently you can buy plasti dip buy the gallon and shoot it like auto paint (so im told) in a few different colors, which is what i think the ones pictured above did. Sucks their all matte but i fully support this.
Im putting this in the back of my mind for later when i cant stand hellrot for another minute.

You can buy some 'glossifier' plasti-dip too. Depending on how many layers you add, the more glossy the dip seems.

I think it's funny that this was originally made for tools, but took off like a shot in the auto-industry, and now that's what they've shifted towards. Good for them I suppose. I didn't really see their company going anywhere with just the tool stuff.

How do you take it off? Peel it? Will it ruin the paint?

Even the F30, my favorite. Nothing in this world is sacred.

That sh;t only looks good on gray-scale. The rest of those are pretty fuggin hideous. The last blue F30 looked "fair", but that synthetic material just doesn't look good in colors outside of gray-scale.

At least of the ones you posted above... that is,

There is a lot of room for creativity with that look. I love it!

Post up pictures when you find them of more BMW's

Yes those are all plasti dipped.
Yes you just peel it off.
No it doesn't hurt the paint at all.
You can make ANY color you want but it'll be matte.
I do not think the glossifier does a very good job.
Look up "Dipyourcar" for more pictures of other cars.

I saw a porsche 911 that was dipped the other day. Looked awesome, matte black is the only color that looks good imho
