Dipped mustang

Any one dipped their mustang? I'm looking at dipping mine with the Atlantic pearl and saw on the video that you have to paint the base black I was curious if my car is already black if I would need to do that?

I doubt you'd have to dip yours black. I've only dipped my wheels though. Never the car itself.

Unless you are going to get the dipyourcar kit and have previous experience painting I wouldn't. Its not as easy as get a bunch of spray cans...


That said, when done right they do look pretty good.

Don't worry...I'm here.

Yes. The purpose of the base is to build enough layers for durability and peel ability as well as keeping your paint from being damaged.

I recommend 3 gallons of base with pearls mixed in 2 additional gallons of clear or glossifier. So you will need to purchase 5 gallons of dip plus the pearls.

You could get by with less but I promise the outcome would not be ideal.
Base


Pearls


Base

Pearls


Remove head and taillights. Remove hood scoop, side scoops and spoiler. Follow the prep videos from dyc, don't skimp on product, and make sure you wait at least 15 minutes between coats.

If you have any questions feel free to ask on here or send me a message. I normally have 15-20 hours in a car. More if it's an older, dirtier car.

Also, if you choose not to use a base you will ruin your paint by embedding the pearls into your clearcoat. Others have tried it...never works out well.

Then yours will most very likely look streaked and start peeling and flaking in short order. Not trying to be a dick... but I've seen more than a few DIY can dipped cars that the younger guys drive into work and either right off the bat or a week later they all look like crap.

Check out the dipyourcar youtube page and spend a few hours watching instructional videos. Fonzie has a good series on how to prep and spray.

I bought the spray system from dipyourcar and have had great results. Im now starting to play with a true compressor setup now that i'm in an actual shop instead of my garage.

My first pearl was nebula red and it went very smoothly. Just don't skimp on prep or material. Both will lead to a job you will regret.

I just looked up that pearl. Colorshifts are more difficult but i wouldn't say impossible. You will more than likely end up with a few stripes as it's a technique to spray them that takes practice. The key to minimizing striping is opening the flow slightly and changing your spray patterns. Be sure to walk the entire car with the pearl coats or you'll have dark spots everywhere you start and stop.

The matte blue would definitely be easier for your first time.

It's alot of fun when you start playing with it. This car is far from perfect but most people never notice. Not bad for all being done in my garage.
