regular clear coat paint makes it a pain to peel the plastidip so use it at ur own risk. use the plastidip glossifier even though its not as shiny.

Here you go lol the first is a bit blurry though, and the second has water marks and dirt from the morning dew will take it out sometime today though if you just matte black it, it'll be without a doubt smooth

oh wow, that came out quite nice. I'm going to attempt to do this to my car this week, weather permitting. Unfortunately, Chicago is in for another Polar Vortex, so i'll see how it goes.

I LOVE the black top look, not every color can pull it off though.

ok, so i plasti-dipped my roof today, and did one coat of Metalizer to finish it off. It didn't come out at great as I'd hoped, but i did sort of half-*** it, bc I finished everything in 1.5hrs. I'm still thinking of wrapping it, but we'll see. Here are the pics

Not bad^ needs a more aggressive wheel/suspension set-up to pull it off though.

This is my winter setup. I run a different set of wheels for spring, summer and fall.
