      Bash away, doesn't bother me, the car has herpes, I would expect a mouth full *cough *cough.
      For what it's worth, I would do this again, however I would NOT duplicate the color. I can't handle the cement, grey, primered appearance and you don't know till you spray it. I was hoping it wouldn't of dulled out as much as it did.
      The wheels where shot, and when I mean ruff, well, they where pretty bad off. To refinish them was ~$940.00, with me doing alot of the work/labor. They will be replaced, the car will be re-shot.

      Keep us posted. While I personally wouldn't do it, I think this is an interesting experiment!

      try crinkle paint next. honestly. It would keep some gloss like it sounds your looking for and still be textured.
      props for admitting the gray sucks!

      How much money did you end up spending?? I would definitely do a BLACK bedline on my car, i personally think its REALLY cool, except the rims...especially our canadian winter here...Paint Sucks...i can KICK ice off my car if its bedlined....

      10% of a paint job.

      The amount of material needed for almost the entire car: trunk, inside of doors, door jams, underside of hood, etc and tinting it, under $400 (2 kits, 1 quart tint).
      Now, if not tinting it, going with the raw black and only doing the exterior of the car, $120 (1 kit).
      However, if doing black, I'd probably add a little bit of actual black tint to the raw black to increase the luster/shine, unless you want the dueler raw black.

      I love it, how come i didn't see this thread before. You took functionality to the next level friend
      the reason you get much criticism is cause, typycally you can do home depot tuning on mk1 mk2 and maybe mk3 Volkswagens, pulling it off on Audi some people just don't get it
      i was gonna paint mine flat black, and everytime i get a scratch i just spray ir with more rustolium from Home Depot.
      In the end it really comes down to how much time you have on hands

      Sorry to bring this thread up again, but seriuously, does anyone offer the entire car vinyl in the states? If so, anyone know a website? I'd like to look into this. My car needs a new skin BAD, and since it's got a salvage title now, it really isn't worth putting 4k into a paint job.

      Ill do it for 1200. Single color, seamless.
      I do full vehicle wraps all day long!

      if I still lived in Binghamton I'd look you up on the wrap thing - I'm doing this bed liner thing soon as the summer rolls around. $200 should about cover it

      not to bash on the bedline idea, its definitely unique, but if your looking for a cheaper alternative to taking your car to a paint shop, you can try the rustoleum method. I did it with great results



      I did the whole thing for about 120, including the price of the gun.
      and a link to the tread with the process

      well played!
      driving a few miles took care of it for the most part, the rest a scrub down with mineral spirits took the rest.

      Oh, I have the money, yet the sense not to drop $4,000 on a $4,000 car.
      That is unless, it's a true restoration.
      I would of loved to do the Rustolum/Rustolem/HookedOnPhonics however I had body work to contend with that needed a professional touch.
