    Holy shit. I've always been a fan of semi gloss paint jobs and I know this isn't it but it sure looks like it and it is fuckin AWESOME. I'd rock it

        Not bad, better than primer that doesn't stand up to elements. I did my patio furniture last week with some.

          Looks rad! i will say that a friend of mine was saying that plastidip is a PITA to clean, and from my experience its hard to clean too. He had to use degreaser and a sponge to scrub every bit of dip to get it clean.

            Looks good from afar. Care to share to cost of materials?

              I noticed that If I don't spray heavy coats it's hard to clean off, but alcohol or paint thinner cleans it off real easy.

              Cost wise I used 4 gallons in total. I got them for a steal on amazon for 75$. but they are usually 58 a gallon.
              Plastidip Spray: 4*60= 240$
              DYC sprayer and mask= 130$
              Perls : 2*12 = 25$

              Total is about 400 including everything

              I was lucky and knew someone with the DYC sprayer so my total cost was a little over 100 dollars. But once you have the gun the only expense is the dip itself, and blue 3m tape (which is sooo expensive... I don't know why)

                Looks nice, I'd rock it. Plus it's not a PITA if you want to change it to another color like bronzit

                  Nice, looks good! I've been debating dipping my car yellow. I would wrap it but the texture on the valances would make it difficult I feel.

                      As someone who has some plasti dip on my car. It does look like shit in person, but on the other hand it looks far better one color then multiple colors too.

                          Wow, that looks incredible. I'm planning on a spray next spring. Right now I'm up to 6 colors.

                            I'm really glad this turned out great. I love the idea of plastidip, but so many people do a half ass job and it gives it a bad reputation.
