Paint job

Hey everyone. So my car has some pretty noticeable dings/scratches all around and the more I have it the more I notice appear on my car ( which I know is gonna happen ). I do park as far away as possible from other cars when I go places but they still seem to appear.. Haha. So I've looked at paint jobs and it's pretty expensive for a paint job and don't really wanna spend that much money on it. Im definitely not gonna give my car to MAACO due to the horror stories I've read. Anyways..I've been looking at both dipping my car and vinyl wrapping it ( which I've heard can be expensive as well ) but it looks pretty dang nice! Just want to see what your guy's opinions are, or if any of you have dipped/vinyl wrapped before.. Your experiences with them? Thanks

My friends dipped camaro. All I can say is take your time and get some shade (garage). It came out like crap but a good learning experience and a good time. I think he used 2 gallons of gunmetal grey

He bought the whole kit from dip your car. I think it's because he sprayed out in the open

Hmm.. It does suggest not to spray and let it dry in the sun. Which is probably why it looks kinda faded.

I don't think you can tell but it got like fuzzy (texture) on the roof. He regretted it but I thought it was fun

If I dip my car I probably wouldn't do flat black.. Not sure what color though.

You have to dip thick and in numbers of coats over large areas like that. He also needed to do it in a secluded area with no wind. I'd suggest dipping over that dip and building it up.

Just got my top part dipped. We did 7 coats of the flat black and turned out excellent. I waited fir three days and then washed it and the dip still didn't peel. I like it...can't beat it for the price

Get it wrapped. It looks so much better. Plus they usually have some sort of decent warranty.

Of course it does cost quite a bit more than plastidip.

A good wrap job can cost almost as much as a new paint job, and what if you change your mind about it, then your down all that money. Dipping an entire car is like $150 for 3 gallons of dip
