Yay. Got rear ended today.

Well today on my day to work, I was sitting in traffic and then get slammed in the back and the bumper dents in and the plastidip protected my original paint but just tore a little. Easy 25 fix to redo the bumper, so I let them go. I figure we'll I do have something special that has been sitting in my room so this is a good time to do the switch. So subscribe to this thread and you'll see the transformation and how I fixed this.

I would have went the traditional insurance route because there can sometimes be more damage than meets the eye, but I have trust in your judgment.

Ok MasonStacks, beguile me...

I think he's going to use paint thinner and plastidip over the rear end.

I wouldn't call it crazy. I would call it wanting to try new things and pay 75% cheaper than getting a paint job.

If you search "plastidipped dashboard" you should find it.

"Slammed" and "easy 25 fix" doesn't really add up. You must watch too much news media.

Pretty much. But I used slammed because I had the brake on and in neutral, and they hit me hard enough to move the car forward with the brake on, and easy $25 fix because that's how much it's gonna coat in plastidip.

Park your car in front of a train at max velocity. The result will be much more suitable for "slammed".

Hey there's no need to give attitude to someone on here. You two have different definitions of "slammed," get over it man.

Yikes...if a passenger sits too long in the car, I'm guessing they get the plasti-dip treatment too!

looks great though, I gotta say. My son works at a body shop, and he uses this stuff on his daily driver 90 4Runner all the time.
