VH5150 The biggest problem that you're going to have with dipping those pieces is the texture on them. You're going to need to spend a crap-load of time sanding the texture off of them or they're going to look horrible-that's assuming that the pattern will even adhere properly to them. Process IS amazing, though--I have several pieces on my Ranger.

Weight savings. Hydrographics are way lighter than vinyl.

You're getting an aqua dip with a carbon fiber look layover applied.

Grats for that, it should look pretty awesome.
Thank you.

LOL. I was wondering the same thing when I saw the thread title.
