Car looks mean man. The color choice fits perfectly. I never thought of plasti dipping the whole car for the winter. Has me curious. How much does something like this run? Also can you wash a plasti dipped car or do you just leave it all winter the way it is?

In fact, I just found out it was pretty easy to wash, just pressure washer it and finih the towel that come with the Plasti dip, honestly, a lot easyer then washing a paint, I'm happy of that!!

oh and as for as price, I guess it depends who do it for you or you can also buy the same kit that my friend do all his job with for really cheap.

You're welcome. I live in a very old wonderful architecturally satisfying part of Buffalo NY and there are a few lloyd wrights withing a couple miles, as well as some homes designed by people who studied under him. It's very cool.

it turned out pretty good, I still have it on my car, no scratch at all on the car, Plasti dip is a pretty impressive product!! I have so many good comment on the color that I had decided to keep it until next spring but now I think I'm missing my Sparklinkg Graphite too much, also I get a bit more attention then what I would want, I'll probably take it off this week, enjoy my paint for the summer and try the black Plasti dip for next winter!

let us know how easy it is to take it off. I dipped my wheels once on my previous car and that thing was almost impossible to take off in big pieces. It took me 4+ hours to remove and i still had a lot of plasti dip left on them that i just left there

Yeah I understand, that's the reason why I'll never dip wheels, because the little rocks that the wheel receive does'nt chip the plasti dip but it makes it less strong for when you want to take it off! It must be a real PITA! I just hope my front bumper won't be to hard to peel off!

You know you want to go back to Sgraph

Looks like it held up great. And that's gotta be so nice not to have to worry about swirls. I love how you left the angel eyes stock. Works with the color for sure!
