Fresh Dip, First Post in a While

I haven't posted in here in a while but I just dipped my wheels (2nd time) so what the hell. Btw, Misfire, that car looks amazing. Here we go...

Refresher to last winter...I dipped black and loved it.





I had the black on for roughly a year, screwed up some of it so I removed everything (if you go too thin and it doesn't peel nicely, use Goo Gone...works wonders). Last night I got bored and started dipping again...results came out better than expected.

Prep work:



White PlastiDip as a primer coat:



Transformation begins, 3 coats Blaze Y..



Unmasked, crappy garage lighting:



Outside, color version didn't really pop like I wanted but hey, those metallic flakes in the Tuxedo Black are beautiful here:



Final product with the right lighting:



Bonus: Just got this delivered last week. If you don't get it, think about what you'd see in the rear view.

I am loving this car. Love the way it handles. Only have had it for a few weeks, so nothing done to it yet. Looking at getting an intake and exhaust in the next year. Does anybody autocross there cars? Really thinking about getting into it!
