You'll have to excuse the ~3 year old other thread floating around, some one did the ultimate bump from the archives
This thread will cover:
- Stages of it's transfermation: I, II, III & part IV (Car is now white)
- The current transfermation build
- A ~4 year report card on the product
- A How To And What The Stuff Is
- My Thoughts And Opinions
- Unexpected Results
Here you go, part IIII:
....after weeks of driving, the tank coolant failure, and the rain....and not even being cleaned for the pic...pretty clean:
LED Free Floating License Plate Bracket With 6000K Xenon Reverse and running lights, wires lol wut ?
General Mods and Upgrades:
Paint Prep : S4 Valance, Bumper, Skirts, Moldings, Custom Skirt End Caps
I wanted to show what the paint color and appearance differences are between a solid and textured surface of the same color, so here you go against the bike fender:
DDM 8000K 55W Projector Depos With LED Conversion
With the removal of the deep Rieger V2 rear valance and addition of the S4 conversion bumper and valance the emmesion box showed in the rear. So, cut out the spare tire well, added a false floor, and moved it as not to see all the box and all the lines:
After 4 years? No dings, dents, scratches or even a SINGLE flake off the corners or edges. No spider webbing, cracking, peeling, touch ups or problems.......before going white people still asked if it was dry enough for them to touch it (parking lots, etc). Knocked it down with 3m pads, professional gun, paint and paint both where used.
I feel it's necessary to quash the same things posted over and over and over concerning others posts about it when it's already covered in the threads: Does NOT make the car heavier (an entire case of this stuff plus even the gun in the box, plus the containers does not weight more then primer, sealer, blocker...which you do not use for this treatment). It's literally 3 times easier to wash as nothing sticks (you only wash it for windows and rim dust), doesn't harm a shammy at all, it's smooth, as in it's actually slick...yes...far slicker then a wet normal paint job. Setting an object on the trunk or hood is a trick, as it's slides off like Teflon.
Feel free to pick out wheels, have brand new rubber waiting to be used.
If you're going to knock it, no one cares that you do so blatantly, so at least make an effort to show you don't like it , aka, funny caption this, good photo shop ripping on it, at least put some effort into disliking it ...come on!!!!!....it's TCL, people don't log on just to see just a: thumbs down...just takes up space. Go ahead a rip .
As I've stated in previous years, aside from all the benefits I wasn't attending to get when doing this, the absolute riot is the expressions and jaw drops & facial expressions at parking lots, driving and red lights.... hilarious, really hilarious.
I till have a bit to go, new tips, wheels, and another brake package. The engine bay is pretty tricked out, however will be redone.
In Phoenix, the ~first rain is the nightmare as it's months and months of grease, oil & dust,(no mud, salt, or dirt per say). The water is literally, no joke, black coming off the streets. I was curious as how this would effect the white as even though it's doesn't really stick to much, yet it'll sometimes get the chance to dry on the paint if you park for a bit, one week after shooting it I got that chance early morning driving to work, it turned out quiet well...comparisoned it to the other employees cars...came out the cleanest.
