I would seriously appreciate any type of help I could get. I bought a spray gun from Home Depot and about 7 14oz cans and well when I first sprayed it it came out like little string like. Anf on top of it not coming out right, the dip would come outt white or grey when it should've come out flat black. I tried my hest to tweak it and adjust it but I just couldnt get it to how it suppose to be. I was wondering is it because of the gun that I jeed to thin the dip cause its too thick or what? I would really appreciate any type of advice or fixes to this please. Here are some pictures the best I got it was to about charcoal grey but the texture was weird kind of like fiberglass

Your not goin to get a real gun from Home Depot, order one from dipyourcar.com if you want a good spray gun. I did my wheels a while back but I feel to do your whole car it's best to do it in closed quarters. With the wind blowing and sunlight doesn't let the plasti dry properly

Did you do this outside? It looks like really bad overspray. If your painting outdoors and in an uncontrolled space do it early in the morning before the wind picks up. If there is wind the paint job won't come out good.

I used this makeshift booth with the sides wrapped in plastic to make a paint booth. Idk on a whole car, perhaps 2 easy ups. It kept the wind out and spray nice, but be careful of temps getting to hot if you choose to do so.

Well it was just coming out of the gun really weird. It was like little hairs shooting out and it wouldnt come out smooth and tried adjusting it and wouldn't fix
It was completely windless this morning when I did it. It wasnt hot either so that cant he it

You bought the wrong stuff, you want to get the ones in the spray cans. What you got is un-thinned plasti dip, it is meant for literally dipping something into it for a rubber coating, not spraying. Sorry but you just watsted your money on that. You need the ones in the spray can. Or the gallon ones from DYC that come pre-thinned.

You can but it still doesn't work as good as the pre-thinned ones. DYC even did a video and compared the prethinned and the other after they thinned it and it still looked like crap.
