My professional painting experience, I would highly advise you not to do this to your car if you like your car at all. I watched a few videos of the company painting a car and showing you how its done and its quality.
It could be my painters eye, but the car looks terrible! It looks cheap, grainy, and poor quality. For one it doesn't lay down smooth like a normal Base Clear would. You can still see the lines from that house painting gun "Wagner". Any money if you would touch the car it would feel like 400-800 grit sandpaper. "And the videos were straight from the company, yet it still looked like trash. Also if the paint can peal right off on head lights and certain parts, what makes you think a stone from the road or a bug wont do the same on other pieces?
Never go cheap on a paint job, you get what you pay for and it will last alot longer and will look amazing. Up to you, its your car! But don't do this to your poor car, it deserves more love!

The thing is that I don't have money to get a paont job on it, even if I did everything myself I don't have enough money right now. That's why this is temporary. I've been using plasti dip for about 6 years now so I know how to use it. Thnks for the concern, I wouldn't do it if my car wasn't damaged but this is all I can do since I'm on a low budget.

Thats understandable then, i wasn't trying to sound mean or anything. Just in case that's how you took it.
Just letting you know, you can get a gallon of paint "1 Step Paint" everything is mixed in except primer, then all u have to do is scratch up paint a little. Mask and Shoot.
300 Bucks tops
Idk where u live but if its near PA, im always down to help a fellow car guy with paint/body work

Oh no it's good I was just saying what my position is. I have another thread up were my car got hit and don't have or want to pay the 1000 dollar deductible. So far I've spent about 220 dollars, front right fender, puddy, sandpaper, dip, and some other things needed. I will probably paint it as soon as I save up some money. Man I would totally use you're help but I'm in Cali. Thnks for all the info and tips though! Greatly appreciated!

hahah yeah that's a little fair! I know exactly what your going through. I drove my 98 stang 2 years straight for college 200 mile round trip everyday. Last day of college some "Ahole" decided to slam on his breaks and caused a 6 car accident, me being the last car. Smash the whole front clip, and everything. I didn't buy anything but 2 new fenders. I repaired the hood and bumper myself, and repainted it. Took a few weeks but it doesn't look too bad. "Its the Red and Black stang in my photo.
some hammering, welding, and a little bondo or epoxy, and alot of hard work. Will save you thousand. Good luck on the project! Send in photos of before and after, Id like to see it!

So as a decision, would you rather recommend buying the 22 or 14 oz cans of dip and spraying it with the gun or doing just cans all the way?

The 22 oz cans are 6 pack for 80 bucks. The 14oz cans are 7 bucks a piece so you get more bang for you're buck with the 14oz cans. I reccomend doing it with the gun because sometimes the cans spray weird or are defective. And you will get more done with the the spray gun than cans

I should just buy a ton of 14oz then huh. I found the plasti dip gun on Amazon for 80 and it could be usable with around the house paint also so I might do that

Would just any spray gun work with plasti dip? Or is there a certain specification or feature needed?

Same problem Lol dipping it is muuuuuch cheaper than a new paint job and on top of it you do the job so its your fun amd creativity. And saves you hundreds or thousands in money. Ive been told using a spray gun and buying some dip other than cans is way better and faster. Have you decided on a color?

I would buy the kit, either the green or the blue. I would also dip the rims all black exempt for a little chrome ring. I would also black out the emblems and smoke the lights all around. It would look cool, but it would also cost a lot more than I have right now.

I'm not sure most of the colored dip you have to order it online.

I've only ever seen the coloured online. Except for the Blaze colours, which no one would dip their car in.

I think plasti dip is different, I've never seen a car around my area with it, but I have seen multiple with wraps.

Well if you apply the plasti dip briskly and be patient with it while applying it should come out rather good, flat and smooth in all but I have seen few cars that since its cheap and rather inexpensive they dash through it and it ends up as a dip fail.

Exactly! I don't have the $1000-$1500 to get the car painted properly, and there is no reason to do a cheap $600 mayco paint job, but I do have the $300 to make it look good for now by plasti dipping it.

Yea! Well my car got hit and don't have 1k for the deductible so I went and did the body work all myself and total was is like 280. I paid for a new front fender, passanger mirror, door handle, puddy, bondo, hardner, sand paper, new hose, and the dip.
