Got my new winter suit today, army Plastidip!

Big thanks to my friend Pat who did the car, he's the distributor of Plastidip products in Canada and he's a pro at dipping cars!
If someone needs his services: patrick@dipyourcar.com

Also thanks to Andrew at IND for my new Edition grills and gills, I think they fit incredibly nicely with the color and texture of my dip!

p.s. Not the best quality of pics but it gives a good idea of the result, note that even close to the car there is no flaws or defaults, the color is perfectly even on all the surfaces, could'nt ask for better result!

That actually looks cool. Nice colour choice. I'm not sure if I would have painted over the carbon fibre splitters though. Is plastidip available in a variety of colours and does it have a textured finish?

I dipped my car mainly to protect my front end this winter, I know it would've looked better with the splitters not dipped but then I would've needed new splitters at the end of the season!

I'm not normally a fan of matte, but for the intended purpose this is pretty bad ass.

Not bad. That looks better than I thought it would. Report back at the end of the season. I'm curious to see how it holds up. Thanks.


Cheers.
