Which out of the following two is wrapped, and which one is plast dipped? Hmmm can't tell a difference.............. Only difference is that one is a lot easier to do and also a lot cheaper (plasti dip hint hint) haha. I don't get why people hate on a well done plasti dip job and accept a vinyl car wrap. It's the new thing and you'll all be seeing a lot more of it now a days haha

The 1 looks like a wrap. Makes no difference.

on these pictures you can't see which one is plasti dipped, but IRL you can see it from a mile away.
you can spray cloudless on a rim, but on a car...

You've seen a plasti dipped car in real life to compare? The owner of this aston martin doesn't seem to agree with you

And sorry this will be my last off topic post in here



I'll just stop talking after this pic Everyone has their own opinions

lol exactly, looks like primer. I never seen a bmw pull off that matt/satin look. The ones that do look good are photoshopped as hell, then you see it in person

well that 1series is photoshopped like crazy lol. I just cant see myself spray painting my car with plasti dip. Im all for being different and getting the most bang for the buck...but thats past borderline ghetto and being a cheap ass. I wouldn't even do that to my old beater.

just my .02cents

whoever has the balls to plastidip an Aston, hats off to him. But let that plastidip sit in Florida or Cali heat for a few days and youll see why people talk **** about it. Wraps FTW. Plasti-Dip is great if you want to get rid of your chrome trim, etc. but for a whole car. just not worth the risk.
