I say do it. Doesn't cost much and may come out looking good. May come out looking horrible but at least it didn't cost much.

That's true. I recently mess up the front end and now I'm going with the cobra front bumper and instead of getting that and my front end painted I figure try plasti dip and see. I've plasti dipped my rims a while back and it took alot to peal or chip.

I got my mustang an it was previously plast dipped, I can honestly say I'd never plasti dip a car in my life after that. It was a pain in the *** to remove and a huge mess. Not to mention it's fairly thick an it started to peel and wear off in places. I'd have to say no, especially if you think you might not like it or you will have it long enough to where you'll change it sometime. Just my opinion though. Do what would make you happy 😊

I agree with fomoco. I have plasti dipped emblems hood vents and spoiler to match the stripes. Only the hood vents have stood the test of time. Another option would be to wrap your car.

It always comes out looking like exactly what it is, cheap azz rattle can backyard redneck don't take pride in your car spray paint.
Please have some pride and patience in your Mustang. Work hard, save the money, do it right, don't use plastidip.....ever....on anything.
You can make people turn heads, compliment you, do a double take..even on an 02... When you do it right, NOT the cheap easy way. Because it will look cheap and either proclaim you In fact live in the ghetto or you are 16 or both.

Nothing wrong about it when done right... There is no right or wrong when it comes to customizing your OWN car.

Like paint it is all in your prep. And spray it out of a gun, not a can

Oh yes... yes there is...

Especially on modifications that make the vehicle legit unsafe on the road which is far too often.

Get the car kit with the gun and do a good job with it. Grabber blue would look cool in a matte finish with black rims. There are some amazing looking plasti dip jobs. If yours looks like crap, then peel it off and get a normal paint gun.

The dipped cars that look like a "bucket of ***" are done by idiots who dont know what they are doing, and they would look equally ****ty if they used real paint with runs and orange peel everywhere
