Your input please

Just finished dipping the hood and trunk, matte black. I think it looks great, I want to do the roof as well, but only the sides not the middle part with the fin.

I can't see anything really good in that picture. I will say I have wanted to plasti dip my hood as well. (black camaro here) so I would be really interested in seeing the hood!

Did you use spray cans? Or the sprayer gun?

I've been using plasti dip for a long time, and I will never use can on the body of a car, way to uneven, too much work, and the mix of actually plastidip to thinner is terrible.

Thank you for the love, you need the sprayer :

1. Because it gives you control over how much dip you put on the surface.
2. Allows you to apply a constant stream.
3. Cheaper to buy, if you're doing your body and not rims.
4. Ability to mix the dip to a thinker consistency, therefore less chance of runny dip, and it dries quicker.

A lot more advantages but that would be obnoxious to list them all.

God bless



Ps nobody commented on the brake lights =[.

i think you should have done matte black only on the rise part of the hood not the whole hood. I think it kinda looks like you got a new hood and all thats on it is primer. If you like it then who cares. PPl dont like things on my car and i think it looks awesome

Appreciate the feedback you guys, ill be doing the entire car in some wild color; so far it's either baby blue, matte purple, camo green, or matte blue. We shall see which one wins. Ill post pics ASAP.
