Thread about plastic dip

Okay so I'm really debating dipping my whole entire car, yes not just my wheels my whole car. Ive done everything I want to on it really a nice sounding exhaust, gears, tune cold air intake and soon to be some cams whenever I have a few days my car can be in pieces so I can put them in. Ive done some exterior things as well, a new fascia, fog light deletes etc... Im a young guy lol and i want my car to be a little bit more unique, but I can't afford a full paint job right now, nor a wrap.. but I found a shop that plasti dips whole cars for roughly 700-1000 and they come with a year warranty and I'm seriously debating doing it I've been through 100s of threads and it seems people either think its for mentally handicapped high schoolers or the product is alright if applied properly, I used the search function I know there have been threads on this I read them but wanted some more recent views Im definitely on the fence about it but it seems like the product has come a long way! Just curious as to some of the opinions of people who know more about it or have seen it first hand..

www.dipyourcar.com, watch is videos. Lowflyn on here does pro dip jobs and they come out looking like factory paint pretty much. A few others have done real good jobs too. And then you have the ppl who rattle can the whole car and it looks like a bag of ***...

Yes its come a long way.

700-1000 with a 1 yr warranty is a good deal. Your other option is buy everything yourself and you'll be around $600 once said and done.

If it is done properly you won't be able to tell it's dip. People assume my cars are wrapped most of the time.

Durability is great if applied and cared for properly. You will have fairly significant fade after 1 yr unless you go with a basic color in matte.

$700-$1000 is a great deal from a shop with a warranty. In Washington area it usually runs around 1300-1600 for a mustang size full dipped car. Id check out some of the previous work the shop has done. Plastidip can be a phenomenal product for what it's meant to do but it all depends on who puts it on and how they do it. Also using cleaning products meant for plastidip specifically can largely help with the aging process. I use dip all the time when vinyl isn't an affordable option. Works good and looks good if it's done right. Big thing to look for when your looking at work someone has done is how smooth the finish is and what the line look like where the dip ends. For example in the seems of the trunk if the line is sporadic they didn't take the time to tape off and spay with the lid open and instead just sprayed everything and let the crack between panels create the line.

If you do it, get the new autoflex dip. It looks almost like paint. Make sure they lay it on thick because it will be terrible trying to peel it off a whole car if they make it too thin.
