Plasti-dipping my car....

Postby Jamie » Mon Jul 20, 2015 4:20 pm

Right, as usual I've decided on a whymm that I want my car plasti dipping

So basically just need to pick a colour

I've seen matte bronze on eBay I like & a couple of lads suggested frozen grey

Anyone any thoughts?

Cheers!

Yeah I did consider estoril Ricky, whilst it's not permanent it's still £200+ so want it to have some sort of longevity :lol:

The bronze or grey would look good and practical too!
We plasti dipped a mates civic in white, looked great for a week... then it stated to stain and you just cant clean it properly.
I'd recommend a dark colour!

Yeh Stu, I've seen that, hence the darker colour choice, also petrol is something that is quite damaging and I'm always clumsy with the nozzle....

Jay do you ever just sit and enjoy your car? The blue above is nice though. What about white and then do your wheels black :lol:

save the 200 quid save up a bit more and then go for engine bling far more bang for your buck m8.......the southern shandy drinkers have already done plasti dip to death and i have loads of m8's who have said whilst it looked good once you get a few stone chips in it if you go a lighter colour its a pain when it starts to show through and you dont drive like miss daisy so you know you are going to get chips

where as how many really good looking enigine bays do you see at the shows and they draw in the crowds more

glad you now have a side on view of the wheels also you can get a feel for them on the car more now

I concur with Lloyds statement.

As for what Tooley said... I actually agree. I was VERY tempted to do this mod on my 330 mainly for protection over the winter months, but now I think I'd prefer a lovely engine bay to show off!

well if you cant be talked out of it look out for the audi that has been done on buckshaw in a camo silver/grey/black as i think with your wheels you cannot go wrong and its on trend at the moment and with it having the camo mix it will allow you the odd chip or two whilst still giving you that stand out look

Tooley plasti dip is very resilient to chipping, because of its molecular structure, impacts from stones etc, they just bounce off, but yet it peels off from any corner :)

Haha cheers lloyd, it's either gonna be bronze, copper or gunmetal :D
