Anyone Plastidip their whole Cruze? if so how do you like it? Was it easy?
If I could borrow my grandparents garage, and if I had $300 to throw away at something other than performance upgrades, I'd be more than willing to do so.To get back on subject lol
I haven't heard or seen anyone on CT to have their whole Cruze dipped.
But if you still want to, you will either need a bunch of cans of dip (10-15) and durable fingers. But you will prob have a lot of inconsistency.(tiger stripes, grainy texture, runs)
Doing stripes or wheels is a lot easier than doing the whole car.
Or you can buy the kit that comes with a Wagner electric spray gun and 3 gallons of dip. Believe is around $300 off the Dipyourcar website.
When my dad first moved to LA to start a life back in the early 90s, he bought a Toyota pickup truck that had a different color on every panel of the car. Never got pulled over for it...Ok guys, i'm getting set on doing this the more I think about it. My only question is, if I do dip my car, will I have to report it to the state/DMV or will it be fine with just dipping it and driving like nothing happened? I know California laws cqn be stupid, and I'm going to need to know this info when I approach my parents to say i'm doing it lol.
Exactly, but in the sense that because I can take it off if I mess up or don't like the color so that I'm free to experiment and try out some combos that I have in my head.Now that's something that hadn't occurred to me! And it probably never would have.
The stuff is not permanent, change is possible!
I have a friend whos dad owns a local powdercoat/paint shop. I'm probably going to see if he'll do it for free at his dad's shop or just have him give me pointers and do it in my grandparent's garage (2 car garage). I've already gone through enough of their videos to know how to work with the plasti-dip, now I just need to convince my parents to let me do it before ordering the kit xD.Also for this project
I would subscribe to Dipyourcar YouTube channel and watch every video so you get the technique down since its the most important part of it.
Also a pace where no wind is present will be needed. Like a garage.
Good luck and looking forward to progress
haha parents. i had a whole argument with them about just removing the hubcapsWell, after talking to the parental units, the ending conclusion is, "not now". So unless someone else is willing to take the plunge on the car kit I probably wont be able to do it for a couple months, or at least until summer/fall. I'm actually looking into doing something custom in terms of the intake on my Cruze, but that will be another story for another day. In the mean time I'll be completing the rally look and saving up for coils/exhaust.
