So.............with plastidip coming out in all the fancy colors now...and the process being more streamlined after so many folks have done it, I'm thinking about doing my '05 in matte white........ any thoughts?

I've been reading up on it.....with it being so cheap, it'll be fun....but st the same time the longevity of it now has me concerned

I plasti-dipped the doors and roof on my fiero and it's lasted a year to date through the nice michigan winters without issue and still going strong. I wash the car every now and then too. I didn't even prep the surface when I originally dipped it.

That's mine. Did it gunmetal grey with the black accents and black roof. I love it but I'm doing it again matte black with gloss roof/hood/trunk on the body line of course, oh and the wheels in bronze plastdip also. Ill take pics when I do it. So many people at work liked it that I've even made a little side business for it, painted 4 cars so far.

Oh and about matte white... I did my wife's car orginially in matte white ( it was a baby blue trailblazer) but it stained every time a tree seed fell on it if it wasn't washed off fast enough. It also took 5-6 gallons, I redid it in matte black and only took 3 gallons and came out better. Also, use the sprayer that they sell, its great for plastidip.

Did you remove your headlamps or dip right over them?

Kind of reminds me of that nail polish I buy my daughter that can peel off.
