Wow, that stuff looks awesome. I wasn't aware that they had a whole car kit. Definitely considering this now.
As some of you might know, people have started to use Plasti Dip on their cars. The fact that it can be peeled off without any ill effects, makes it the perfect low budget color change option. There's a guy that's local to me that is doing as a full time job. He does entire body paint jobs that turn out pretty sweet. This is also a good way to decide if I like a color before spending the money to have them coated. From my research Ive found a lot of people that say this stuff stays on for a long time when the surfaces are prepped right. I'll be playing with a few ideas in the next few weeks. The best part of this, is the fact that I can peel it off any time I want

so let me get this straight, i can do my roof black with this and if i don't like it i can peel it off???? video of it coming off?
yea i did. just said that outta excitement but i did see some reviews on youtube saying it doesn't come out as good as they say. but i guess i could risk it and if i don't like it peel it off.
All you have to do is peel it off. I don't believe a pressure washer is needed, and the plasti-dip is supposed to hold up to a pressure washer as long as you don't get super close for long periods of time.
Anyone considering painting their whole car?
I'd like to give it a try just for fun. Go with a matte dark green, blue or black.
I think I am going to do this over the summer. I have a Votex kit from the big sale that I will never get on because a full car respray is too expensive for me. If I can have the kit put on and then spray it myself with this stuff, I have about 5 months to read some DIYs and figure it out.
My car is black now, convertible btw. I won't do flat black or red. The metallic silver looks cool, but white is the best color on a TT.
You don't own a TT, you support it: 2001 LZ7W coupe; REVO chip; Forge hoses and DV relo; MadMax DV; Modshack VTDA; BlueFlame Catback, OSIR corners, Forge bling, H&R, Bilsteins, DEFCON2, 986 seats, 18in OZ Vela II; OEM TTQS alcantara steering wheel, knob, ebrake; OEM: BBS RS IIs; roof rack; trunk rack; phone bracket; trunk mat; all weather floor mats; 4-piece Votex kit. My Mods here: http://public.fotki.com/TTQ2K2/. 2007 3.2 S-Line A3.
Well I have looked at Lowe's, Home Depot, two Ace's, O'riellys, Wal-mart, and Auto Zone and I only found black and 1 can of white.
Looks like I'm going to have to order some white on line. I just wanted to paint my wheel white with some spray cans. I don't think 1 can is enough.

I bet the white dosent show the splotchy affect as bad as black. And I think I might insist on the "glossifier" being used. Except on the mirrors. Flat brushed is the goal.

^^ Very nice!!
Ive been thinking about plastidip for a long while now, but watching these just pushes me right up to the edge of pulling the trigger...
Well I ended up buying 2 cans of white and have started spraying 2 of my wheels. Sprayed 1 full can + 1 coat. Seems to be OK so far. Couple splatters here and there, but this is just for fun so we will see how it turns out.
Will take closer pictures with a better camera if they turn out OK.
1/2 can + 1 coat
