Default Broke Out the Dip Again

Decided to take the plunge and dip my entire car this time around. I'm really a fan of how it turned out but what do you think?

Well, at least you don't have to wax and polish it. Not my thing on the entire car....as long as you are happy is what counts.

Good point Pete. I spent a lot of time trying to keep it clean without the dip.

I prefer the stock look, but I'm not the one that has to look at it every day.

It looks silly when you Plasti dip a whole car. Just silly.

For an off road vehicle, okay. A Mustang? Madness.

I think you've destroyed the resell value of the car.

I don't understand this dip thing...why would you do that?

eh.... matte black dipping just doesn't work with the bulky body of this car. It just makes it look incomplete. Matte colors that aren't black? possibly awesome.

I also think the headlights are a major downgrade from the stock 13-14 headlights, and also contribute to the cheapening of the look. That might add to the bias.

Doesn't do any harm. When you're done with the look, you just peel it right off.

I see. So it doesn't harm the finish?

Nope, in fact it seem to protect the finish on my Fiesta wheels. When I peeled it off they looked brand new and shinny underneath.

I've done wheels and had a hell of a time getting all off. Maybe because of the heat from the brakes?

I've seen mustang done in both blue and orange plastdip. They looked sick!!!
