Have you guys seen this? This is amazing I just ordered a kit from dip wizard. When I get it and do my interior parts I'll post pictures. Here is a YouTube link.

Just so you know. Really curvy pieces can be a huge PITA.

A buddy here has had a lot of his engine bay parts hydro dipped. From first glance I thought it was all carbon fiber until I touched it. His secret is out now.....lol

Will it stand up to normal every day rocks, road grime, and heat/cold? Does it tear?

Man, I would love to use that on my motocycle tanks. I was planning on painting my bikes this winter but may look into that.

I'm familiar with hydro dipping, seen a lot of firearms that were hydro dipped and they looked pretty legit I'd like to hydro dip some things under the hood for some show dress up appearance. Please keep this going

Saw this done with wheels and it looks amazing, but like most other people I have my questions about it's durability. The FAQs on the site make it seem more meticulous than I thought. Too much activator means finish smears off. Too little activator means air bubbles. Finish won't stick to wet surface. Waiting too long to rinse means it will eat through the base coat. Have the wrong/not enough angle and there will be holes in the print. Uneven coverage of the activator means not all of the print will melt.

Vinyl seems much more simple after reading that.

I bought some hydro dipped engine cover off of facebook and they have held up to the heat just fine. Hydro dipping seems like it would be easier to do for the curved pieces like around the e-brake handle.

Google it I bet you have a shop in your area. I'm in friggin Nebraska and have one close to my work. Go there, you will love it. Yes it's durable, my local guy showed me different levels of coatings. He's done entire handguns so that proves the durability. Anything you can think of. Google it hydrographics

Think of it as paint. You have to clear coat it or it will come right off.

That's pretty awesome. I've seen fingernails done like that but never car stuff or guns.

Been almost two months. How did this hold up? I have been debating this for a while. Is it easy to do?
