Good work looks awesome

Thanks! I definitely learned a lot, and it turned out a lot better than I thought it would given it was my first full car dip and I was using pearls, which are not as forgiving as the regular colors.

Nice color, it looks really good. And the black wheels look good with the color, in my opinion.

It was prob done using rubber dip s instead of reduced plastidip. And it was applied with a spray rig, no rattle can.

I want to thank everyone for the compliments they have given me, nice to know I'm not the only one that really likes how it turned out!

You have any video or advice? I am a huge dipper and want to dip my car but I'm a little reluctant.

I got all my info from the dip your car YouTube videos with Fonzie and the dip your car forum just keep reading because there is an abundance amount of information there on about anything there is to know about plasti dip and cars

Awesome man! How long did that take?
From start to finish took 16 hours. 6 hours was just masking everything off then 10 hours on dipping and peeling all the masking off on the final coat.

let me get this striaght..you did this with the same stuff that comes out of a can?
looks great.
It is the same product however I bought it in gallon form as "rubber dip spray" from dip your car which is pre thinned plasti dip and used the dip your car dip sprayer system

This was done in photoshop.

Yes this has 3 coats of black dip as a base and 7 coats of the pearls mixed into a 2:1 ratio of gloss and clear dip. When using the pearls it will get shadows if not sprayed evenly, I actually need to put a few more coats on as it is too light in a few spots that I could not see well in the paint booth.

For the uninitiated, like me

OP, how many gallons for complete coverage and can colors be mixed?
I achieved this by laying down 3 coats of black which ended up being 1 gallon. I then mixed 2 gallons of gloss with 1 gallon of clear and mixed six 25 gram bags of sazuka blue pearls (2 per gallon) different colors can be mixed and there are many people on the dip your car forum that test many different mixtures of colors.
