Hydro dip

Hey guys I've been looking into doing some carbon fiber hydro dip on some of the engine bay parts for a carbon fiber finish. Has anyone attempted anything like this? I mainly just like the look and wanted to see if anyone had prior knowledge to pass on before I went headlong into it

I'm going to do some stuff when I finish being lazy.
My problem is I don't have a container that's large enough for some of the stuff I want to do.

I am really interested in this as well. There is only one place down here and it is still a ways away. I want to go engine bay and some interior parts. Any suggestions would be great from experienced people. I am also a little concerned with doing it myself due to interior pieces, i can just see my f'n the removal up and need bunch of new parts. Do they come off easy?

They come off really easy.
What I've learned hydrodipping

Make sure the film facing the right way
Make sure the water is the right temp
Spray from a foot away
Spray evenly
Wait 20 seconds before dipping, dip at an angle,
Submerge the item completely
Don't have shaky hands
And wash it off with warm (not hot) water

I could go on for days, the only way you're gonna learn is to try and mess up up a million times

Does anyone know if it causes any damage to the container? If not I'd just as soon use my neighbors pool for it haha

Unless you were hydrodipping 3 cars at a time, I don't recommend it.
You need a container that's about 1 inch wider than the item you're dipping.
And yes, it leaves some residue from the activator on the sides.

So for the radiator fan cover I'd probably just use a bathtub. I'm gonna make the "carbon fiber 3.7" lol

Also most films are transparent graphics, so whatever your base color is what color will show through.

^1 Wow, that looks great! Check out youtube for videos. You'll see that it's really not that difficult to get really nice results. Outsourcing is expensive!
