My problem is I can't decide what color would look good. I'd be rolling it on, so hope I'd get a slightly pebbly texture. I know it would hold up...it holds up on houses...why not cars?

What color you think would look good?

Nice work dipshit... So obvious I can't believe no one got there sooner. Looks like a meticulous process to get right.

You get a bottle of fixer (which just re-liquifies the dip) and flatten out that area with your finger, then just re-spray the area and your good.

I was silver originally and it had a lot of pitting on the hood and only a few scratches here and there. I'll get some close ups of it after I finish with the glossifier this week. Been REALLY busy lately flying, so need to finish up some stuff and later this week should get some good pics.

That's the only benefit I see with plasti-dip.

You take off that panel, give a few DIY sprays with the left over dip and your done.

No worries about colour matching, LOL.

Sure beats going through insurance when your car has been keyed.

Looks good! Don't see why so many people hate. Its original and totally reversible. Definitely a good temporary thing if you wanna see what your car looks like in a matte color.

do you have any close up pics of the top around the roof rack like you were talking about? Also can you pop the hood and shoot some pics where the paint stops and the original color begins? Im curious about how that looks. Any close up pics would help.

Looks really good

Thanks!
