    Re: Plasti-Dip the V

    I repainted my car; and peeled off the gunmetal, came off flawlessly! As long as you put atleast 5-6 coats, it should be thick enough to peel off with ease! One solid piece per body panel. Here is my new paint scheme, flat black with the roof/trunk/hood on the body line with the plastidip glossifier. Just need to paint the rims with their bronze/copper color. Oh and also going to be trying blue plastidip on the calipers (see if it holds up to the heat) sorry for the bad garage pics, my lighting sucks in there.

    My car is already peeled. Came right off in about two hours getting spots with over spray.

    As I mentioned the car wasn't perfect as and it was eating away at me seeing the stripes and sone texture. Folowed up with DYC and they were very helpful giving me some pointers for next time.

    There's a glossifer and pearl top coat to use. You do not spray normal clear coats on the product

    It looks good, but I still don't know why everyone continues to follow the blacked out rim trend. It looks like crap. Grey or chrome rims would make this vehicle look so much better.

    Everyone has their own taste in rim color. I personally hate chrome rims (only classic cars should have chrome imo). As far as grey rims, well they'll just look like every other car rims, stock ans boring. The black or any other color rim, gives a car a more custom/ race look.

    I've always wondered, how easily does this paint scratch? With the flat look I've always assumed it would be easy to scratch and stand out.

    As a huge Oklahoma State University fan, these colors give me the biggest hard-on. This is easily the best CTS-V I've seen on this website in my opinion. What you did here just moved to the #1 spot on my V's mod to-do-list.

    This is the color I was looking to do. How many gallons did you use total? Did you use the spray gun DYC sells? What went wrong? I appreciate your input so I don't make the same mistake. Thanks in advance.

    I used the earlex 3500 not the new DYC sprayer they have out.

    If you have the earlex you need to watch how much you fill the paint cup up when doing the hood and roof because the vent hole will clog up with dip and dry

    I used 4 gallons 2 gun metal 2 anthracite

    I next time I need to move faster and spray thicker as I got into doing the 1/4 panels I had some texture because the dip was drying before it hit the car.

    Id think all of my issues would be solved with the new DYC sprayer I hope
