plasti dip suggestions.

So... i have a black car, yeah a pain to maintain lol. Well i'm pondering as to dipping the whole car. I'm just wondering what your guy's opinions are.

My car is black, with silver stripes.

I'm thinking of getting it dipped gray, and the stripes black. Should i dip the whole car just gray without the black stripes, and maybe do hash marks? or just gray or would the gray car and black stripes look better?

The rims are currently dipped gray which i'll dip black.

Picture is for reference of desired color scheme.

The Camaro's paint job makes it look like a suped-up beater or just unpainted body panels, its ugly IMO.

You have a brand new car with brand new paint, why do you want to cover it all up?

That was my first thought, The primer before painting lol, but two main reasons, i hate having to clean it and 30 seconds later it's dusty as hell. Also, kinda bored of the same color.

I have done a lot of custom paint jobs for people who just want something different. It becomes an obsession to some. If you want it, go for it, but make it special in some way.(2 tone, stripes...). My stang is black, and I love it. Yea, it gets dusty, but waxed up, she shines like no other.
My opinion would be keep it the way it came. Save your money.

If you want to go completely different. They sell a flat white plasti dip. That would be interesting. Flat white with black stripes

I think dipping a car is a great way to test the waters. If you really want grey but don't want the flat look then buy anthracite grey that dipyourcar.com. Then once you do that you can put on corresponding stripes and if done correctly it should look very nice. Then buy some pearlizer and spray it over the grey to give it a glossier grey that looks really clean paired up with black hash marks, strips, wheels ect..

And the best part

If you don't like it you can take it off and go back to black!

Do it! I think it'll look BA. A lot of people knock on plasti-dip but if it's done the right way it can look sick AF!
