Opinions, paint or dip s281 spoiler

So about two weeks ago i found an un painted 3 piece s281 spoiler brand new on craigslist and just had to snatch it up. Got it for 200 which seemed like a good deal to me so i snatched it up. Question is should i paint it or plastidip it. Ive called a few shops and its gonna cost 300 to have it painted. Do yall think it will look good if i just dip it? Im gonna go with the majority on this one because i cant make my mind up. Heres my car now. Click image for larger version

I personally think you should Plasti dip it. If done right and even add the glossifier it can look as good as a paint shop for less than $30 as opposed to the 300 you said it would cost.

The Pros:
Cost effective
Looks Good
Can be peeled of if you don't like it

The Cons:
Can be messed up very easy
Semi Time consuming
Not always as clean as a professional paint job


Plasti dip is a good cheap product to "test the water". If you are not sure if you will like it is can always be removed, however if you do in fact like it you can keep it on or remove it and paint it if you feel like you want to keep it that way forever.

Probably would look good plasti dipped black as well since you already have the black wheels. I like the black/white contrast.

Dipyourcar.com or maybe Lowes, Home Depot, or Walmart. I got black at one store, red at another, and gloss at another. Lol
