Thinking about plasti dipping my stang

Any pros and cons about plasti dipping the whole car? Gives it a mat black look, good thing about it is that if I don't like it I can peel it right off. Just wanted to ask for advice don't want to make my car look like a fool!!!

@topless04gt yes sir!!!! Did u find him threw YouTube? That's where I got the idea too. When u did it like how much would u say u put of thinner? Cause we tried doing my friends car the other day but did not add the thinner. So u must imagine it was a pain in the bu** taking it off, and to add it wasnt that nice black it was gray I suppose because we didnt add the paint thinner..... Lol

---------- Post added at 08:00 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:59 PM ----------

But would u happen to have pictures of ur stang what it look like with plasti dip and if so can u post one please?

IMHO, please don't.
Don't anyone get bent out of shape as this is nothing more than my opinion, but it just seems too "Ricer Boy Wannabe" to me.


See the Useful Info sticky thread for a Dupli-Color link.
They have removable spray paints for temporary decoration or to try designs/stripes on your car before you make them permanent. It lasts a good while, even in rain, but can be removed with soap and water.

Yup, you have that beautiful 2 tone paint that came on the 91's and I really like that, I had one grey on grey and I miss it. If you must have it black, please do it the right way. But leave it 2 tone, I think that would look awesome

Like I said it wasn't intended to offend anyone, it is just my opinion.
So chill out and quit trying to start something over nothing.

IMO I might like the plasti dip. It's no more than a spray on wrap. And I just seen that they now make different colors than just black. It seems to be a easy way to change the color of you car to give you a change. And hey if you don't like it peel it off no harm no foul. Do a different color.

A differing opinion from mine with no flaming or BS.
I commend you on your ability to read someone else's opinion and then state your own without any drama.

Cons of plastidip: anyone could just walk up and peel the stuff off of your car right?...

True, but to be honest it probably also helps to protect your finish from dings and scratches.

You never know. Like I said, I didn't intend to offend anyone, it's just my opinion and you did ask.

@ TH I actually thought of trying the taillight idea you gave me with the plastidip. Not as permanent. But to give me an idea of what it will look like to decide if I like or not. Then peel it.

They could also scratch your paint too, but plasti dip is cheaper to fix.

Read the 15th post.


That would be a good use of it.
P.S. I've used it too, for tool handles, battery boxes, etc..

All right, all right, I concede it has it's uses, but when I see a Mustang with it plastered all over it I cringe, truly I do.

The decal only. I might wait until I order a cowl hood to put it on though.
