    How many gallons does it take for each color change...And are you buying it from dipyourcar.com?

    One last question...whats the name of that color you used or was it a blend?

    After you opened the thread I went searching and found some sick colors that people are doing blends with...Here are some examples:

    Here is what the front looks like.

    I used about 2 gallons so far, going to put a 3rd gallon on top just to make it easier to peal off. The mix I did was 90% blue 10% black. I am not buying it from dipyourcar.com I am mixing the dip myself.

    @Linracing how many coats are you doing and how much time did it take you to peel it off? I plastidipped a couple things on my truck and turned out pretty good, but I went with an aftermarket grill after dipping the stock one and it was a pain in the ass to get off...yeah it peeled, but got stuck in a lot of tough places. My concern would be any damage or issues taking it off down the road, and durability to wash it

    Did you use the cans? I know the cans are a pain.

    I did, so I guess my real question is what the quality difference is between the off-the-shelf cans and using a sprayer to apply the product. (this is what you're doing correct?) A few pictures of your setup or paint "station" would much appreciated. I'm guessing you draped off an area around the car in the garage?

    What is the cost if you DIY? All I would need is a cheap gun and 3 gallons of paint it sounds like(have the air compressor)...I wouldn't mind dipping the wife's car something interesting while she is out of town for a few days.

    I will just say the thicker it is, the easier it is to get off. A lot easier.

    @Linracing, looks very good... How long will somethign like that last? I know that's a vague question, and am guessing it's all about care/how and where the car is driven, etc. - but am curious how things like sunny days, washing and overall daily (ab)use take it's toll on that stuff.

    I am thinking about doing my rims - as I hate cleaning them, and since I live in the city - can't do it too often. By the time I get to it, I spend an hour removing the baked on dust - and am almost positive that pitting of the clearcoat has started to occur...

    Point is, I want to be able to easily clean them, stop any future damage - and give a nice new look. I am a bit concerned though that the heat from the brakes will cause the dip to be a bit less protective that it would be at normal temps. Is this a valid concern?

    To clean them you can literally use a power washer and the dip will not come off unless you want it to. You can see you tube videos of this.

    The wheels are constantly cooled from the air. You should have no issues.

    You can always paint on top of the dip and be able to pull it off. Just an idea.

    Cool - makes sense, thanks. Depending on how I drive, there might not be enough wind - they have been hot enough to not touch - that's what I meant. It's definitely not "super" hot, but probably mid 100s (F).

    Its pretty durable, it will survive heat. 3 gallons will do a 3 series 4 for a 5 series.

    What is the average cost of a gallon of dip?

    Are there any concerns about overspray into the door jams, engine bay, trunk area? Just find it and peel/clean it off?

    Yes you will get overspray if you don't tap areas off. But you can peal it off if you do. But its best to tape areas you don't want sprayed. Gallons are about $50-$60 it depends on where you live as well.

    So a bit over 200 for me to buy a gun and 3 gallons...not bad at all, alot cheaper than a wrap and easier to change.

    Where in California can you buy a gallon of dip? Isn't it illegal here?

    I've been trying to get some to do my car but I can't find anything but cans

    Dip your car.com was listed towards the beginning of this thread and answers quite a few questions as well. They even sell pearlized, glossifier, and a re-liquifier to fix tears and stuff. Not to mention a specific wheel kit, cleaner, etc. Pretty cool actually, ordering a kit tonight and going to do a test run on a buddy`s mustang.
