Looks damn good!

After seeing yours, I went to DYC's website, and saw that they're car kits with sprayer are reasonably priced. Do you have an opinion on said kit? Also, how well does the dip cover rock chips? Do they become "sorta noticeable" or "they're so noticeable, I should fix them first"?

I did my first 2 dips with the basic turbine sprayer kit, they came out better than I expected honestly. There is a bit of texture, orange peel like, but it's less noticeable with a satin or matte finish. If you spray with a stage 3 or higher turbine you won't get any texturing. For this dip I used the advanced sprayer and pro line. You just have to take your time, prep and mask everything really well. As far as rock chips and scratches, the dip kinda covers them, I'd say they're sorta noticeable, less noticeable than they were before being sprayed for sure.

Where are you from? I'm on the south side of SB. I'd be down to meet up, my free time is kinda limited though, my wife and I just had a baby, but I could probably manage to find some time.

I am on the south edge of laporte, I dont get over to SB/mishawaka nearly as much as I used to, and I work a lot. but we should definitely meet up, I would really like to see that darkshift in person! Dip might even be a good alternative for my racebike!
