Looks awesome! Love the wheels too. Did you put glossifier on? I would probably get some black vinyl overlays for the "camaro" badges on the sides. They would look really good in black.

Looks like the whole thing is covered in painters tape. Goode thing about plasti is it can come off whenever you want it to.

Everything i taped off is perfect because if you leave about a half inch uncovered, the remaining plastidip will peel right off.

Ok. What about the gaps like around the hood and doors?

Around the hood and doors I didn't tape off (I'm assuming you mean the gaps in between the door and the body and the hood and the front bumper/fenders?). If any dip overspray gets in there they have a spray on their website that re-liquifies it. Yes it is my DD and i drive a lot so hopefully it will keep nicely. And finally it took 4 gallons but personally I would recommend 5 just so everything looks perfect.
