That looks freakin awesome. Plastidip is always a good choice if you have the patience for a good job.

Took me about a whole day to prep and dip. I started off with about 6 coats of black as a base, followed by 3 coats of the copper pearl

Yeah, everything underneath is still factory silver. When I decide to peel it all i have is the exterior to do.

I bought the kit from DYC that came with all the gallons i needed, along with the sprayer and prep materials. It was about $500

Looks amazing. Really thinking about doing this. Only thing stopping me is a guy here dipped his car and when he removed it he couldnt get it out of the jambs and cracks.

Love the finish! Is that the pearl shining like that on it's own or did you use glossifier?

I was skeptical, but it really looks fantastic, bringing out the car's natural form.
I'd love to see it in person - you should drive down to Auburn for Cars and Coffee the first Saturday of the month or down to Ft. Wayne to Sweetcar's breakfast.

The pearl shines through on its own. It's a satin finish, i mixed matte clear and glossifier

the roof was wrapped in gloss black vinyl prior to spraying the dip, i didn't spray over it because i wasn't sure if the solvents in the dip would effect the vinyl. my car is originally MSM
