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 like the new wheels and the yellow calipers.

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

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