Once I workout a deal with them I'm going to set up a discount code you give em letting them know your a mustang owner and where you heard about em.... Maybe "ME" will work something out w em wink wink

I'm going to shoot a video of the process tomorrow to show those of you that are not familiar with what it is they do

Mods I do not work for this company im helping them get some mustang business .... In return I get discounted work done for my car so please don't kill this thread

It has a clear coat over it. I worked for an automatic door company years ago and we used this process to apply a wood grain finsh to aluminum doors for a hotel entrance and they held up as well as any other paint job.

Hydrodipping is pretty cool if you are into that look. It can be done to look pretty badass.

I am having a ton of work done on mine ... However I'm going very simple ... My goal is for u to have to be up close to see the graphic ... I don't want it to be loud ... Keep in mind u can just paint match u don't have to have a design

Btw they do guns, Xbox - ps3 controllers and any other object that can be stuck in water

I have some sick ps3 controllers getting done next week
