My first paint job on a car.. in a garage with gravel floor... and a lot of humidity..



the result

And the winter was a lot snowy


Don't have newer Picture but the dip seems to be in good shape after a lot of snow ice and calcium...

Just have to repaint my 2 rear fender because rust have start to eat it..

inside some panels are(forgot what ones) for primer coat then painted over with paint balck or orange inside/outside plastic rattle can, then clear coated/orange clear coat(black is forsure clear but some orange panles have clear and the orange)




Fog-lights are painted over with orange rattle can no clear,grill(was this pic still has the plasti) then removed wanted to see how it looked, then used real primer and panted black i peeled one fog light off with the paint still on, it was much hard(of course ) but all did come off with the silver intacked then replasti and orange to see it it could be done, waited a few months after the frist time to see if it could be done,and it can,as far as the emblem goes was just same orange paint




as it looks todate fogs are holding strong after a SCCA race in las vegas, been almost 2 years(rims are not painted was bought like that)

When I pay money for alloy wheel package I want them to be seen, not painted black with a spray can . Why would you do that, that car would look so much better if left stock. The only things I did to my car is pull the wheels off it and paint the brake calipers blue to match the color of the car and have the pipes in the back I welded on chrome ones. And polish all the aluminum parts on the engine to chrome finish by hand. No room for buffer.

I think the most important thing to keep in mind is that it's not your money. I understand where you are coming from though.

And when you drive in snow country, or off road, and the gravel and stones and sticks and stuff nick your alloy wheels' clearcoat or the finish itself, you'll understand why a layer of PlastiDip can be a very good idea. Not everyone dips their stuff to leave it that way. I may start dipping the lower part of my car's body in the winters, to help protect it, especially when I get new bumpers.
