      Yep, vinyl is expensive. It really isn't a money saver over a basic respray, unless you want cheetah print or crazy graphics.

      That post it GTI is dope!

      I think my next project is take a high speed orbital sander and sand the whole car down to metal. Delorean status.

      That would look so cool. But it would have to get cleared

      I've seen the finished product of the glossifier. It's nice. Not quite shiney but it tones down the "I did it myself" look.

      I'm pretty sure I had the DIY look due to lack of a thinning agent in our mix. After spraying real paint with an air gun I understand a lot more about paint now... but I still don't know ****.

      I've laid the flat black plastidip down smooth with no problems at all. My first tidbit of advice would be don't do it, but if you must- practice a bunch on something before drinking a bunch of then spraying your whole car laughing about it with your buddy.
