A couple plasti dip questions

Hey guys im new to the whole plasti dip thing. I was wondering how an entire plasti dipped stang looks? If yours is this way post a pic! Also can you just plasti dip something and then paint it? (without all the sanding and priming) I appreciate any feedback

Don't do it. Stay away from the idea, my opinion. I saw a 11 gt do it and it looked like pure garbage. Even if it's done right its still going to look like crap, most people will see it that way. But there are so many plasti dip crazies on here judging by the 10 plasti dip threads started every day.

Yeah i saw people talking about it on another thread. I would imagine it would start to chip and peel and look worse than old paint

My 99 cobra dipped. I only did the whole car because it was in a hit and run so I just popped the dents out and dipped it

Yea it can look pretty good if done right a guy I used to work with has a shop now that he dips the whole car for like 700 bucks and he can use the plasti dip clear coat to make it shine like regular paint

I feel bad for those people paying that much for a car dip. With a few hundred bucks more you can get the whole car wrapped

Yea I was thinking about going to that guy at the end of the summer but I really can't justify spending that much money on just plasti dip. Main reason is I wanna remove my front bra because my front bumper is all screwed up lol but I might just hit it with some touch up paint. What do you guys recommend for clear coat?

If you get the can of it and use the wagner spray gun it can look good, but most of the dipped cars I've seen don't look to good. Look into getting the car vinyl wrapped. Might be a better option, a lot more money though.

If you are patient you can wrap almost anything. The mustang would be fairly easy to wrap and yeah it acts as a paint would. Protects the car and when it comes time it peels off easy enough. I wrapped the roof of my evo x and it took about an hour. Looks damn good and the 3m Di-noc has micro holes to help dry faster and pressing bubbles out.

Not enough coats. You need to put 5 or 6 coats on.

IMO I wouldn't dip the entire car. I dipped the center of my hood, and It turned out really good. Eventually I want to paint the area gloss black, but plasti dip worked well to test if I liked the center black.
