idk if the pic at the end is edited or not but if it isn't then this color is way to bright imo but still a good example of dip on a bmw

The overspray in the door jams and in between seals and moldings suck, will probably have to give the car a full goo gone bath when I decide to take it off after this winter. For anybody who is crazy particular about detailing your car, where you even wax door jams, polish exhaust inner and outer, and engine cleaning, this is not the product for you lol. I am still itching at all the over spray inside the body panels, under the lip of the head lights etc,
Every time I start to think plastidip looks good, I look for the truth. Great product if you're a hipster/stanceworks person that just destroys stuff. Not so good if you actually care about all the details (in and out) of your car. There are some pretty disturbing pictures of all the over spray on the web.

However... I could see this coming out nicely if someone took the time to remove all trim/panels and mask every panel gap, rubber trim, etc. Essentially prep the car for a legit respray.

So you just contradicted yourself I believe. What you meant to say is that if it's done right (with no overspray) then it looks good
