  5. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So I'm thinking of doing a full body color change to my vehicle. It's currently silver titanium. I'm not sure what color yet because I won't even do it until spring, but what is a good price for a full body wrap or a plasti dipping done by a professional of a normal color (such as matte black)...
  6. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I recently got some road rash on my passenger side wheels.....pulled up to a curb too quickly and scratched them both. Dealership wants $560 per wheel.....seems a bit pricey to me. So I figured maybe I can dip my wheels, but I'm looking for an electric lime/fluorescent green....think it will...

    Anthracite Gray Plasti Dip, 3 coats with 2 coats of glossifier. I did not remove the bumper, just the top covers. IIRC, there are (4) 10mm bolts and a handful of plastic-phillips head body connectors. You have to bend the grill out in order to get your hand/arm behind the grill. There are...

    Anyone black out or plasti dip the sides of their LED tail lights, where it's just blank red plastic with no lights? I was noticing the red reflectors under there are patterned in the tiger stripe of way, similar to the front amber reflectors. Because the front amber reflectors are spaced...

    So I bought this awesome intake from a fellow member and its on its way. My question is if I plasti dip the piping that connects to connects to the couplet on the turbo inlet, will it hold up against the heat? Has anyone done this?

    Figure we would have a central spot for all things Plasti dipped. I did this today .. Masked everything off. Go easy on the first 2-3 coats. You can leave the masking tape on. The last coat as long as it is wet it'll peel of without peeling your dip off. I ended up doing 6-7coats waiting about...

  16. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So I decided to dip my tails. I used a 3 to 1 mix Black and Gloss sprayed from rattle can directly into preval jar. The result was actually better than expected. I will still use lamin-x once they offer the pre-cut for 2014, but this is a really nice option.

  18. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So my first experiment with Plasti dip went "okay". Had some trouble with creating the lines when pulling off the tape but learned I gotta do it when it's wet...and learned a lot along the way. Will likely redo or use the fix-it kit from (can you use the thinner from them on...
