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

That looks pretty dang good. How long did it take and how many coats?
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

That looks really good. Inside the door and under hood still factory color or did you dip that too?
Yeah, everything underneath is still factory silver. When I decide to peel it all i have is the exterior to do.


DAMMNNNNNNN, how much did it cost for all the dip? Tempted to do my G8 in dip.
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.

Damn, that looks great! Really seems to bring out the car's lines, too.

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.
