If you think it does, maybe you should re-evaluate your stance on posting in a thread like this.



"Poorly" done, maybe. Fail, no.

I'll make sure I put in a call to someone here with a higher postcount next time I need confirmation of what fail is.

Cool?

Parts plastidipped - maybe
Whole car - no

For real. Plasti-dipping a $500 yard sale Civic? Funny as hell. Go for it. Plasti-dipping what was once a nice car? Fail.

I could NOT grab my phone fast enough earlier:
I saw what I thought was a Cadillac XLR on 24-26" wheels and was amazed someone would be crass enough to do that to such a fine automobile... and then my brain recognized that the convertible I was seeing was in fact a V6 Mustang convertible with an XLR front fascia swapped onto it!!!

I know, I know: pics or it didn't happen! I'm gonna spend more time in town looking for that murdered-out monstrosity!
