Just started getting into cars.. step 1 plasti dip

So all of my friends are really into cars, and I was always kinda out of the loop. I went to a few car shows with them before and they were pretty awesome. But over the weekend I went to Fatmans Invasion in Mentor, Ohio and it just kinda stuck to me that cars were my new hobby. So I figured I'd start cleaning up my Focus. I've had it since I was 16 and I'm about to be 21. I guess it's never too late to start right? :P Still looking into what all I'm going to order for it, moneys not an issue so if you have suggestions please post. It was dark blue, but yesterday I went and got 6 cans of black plasti dip and dipped the whole car, and got online and ordered a few cans of blaze pink for my STOCK rims :P (hopefully they wont be stock for long). I tinted my tail lights yesterday also and I got window tint for my windows but I haven't put that on yet. How do you guys think it turned out?

Sigh... for the life of me I cannot understand the allure to this stuff. As long as it makes you happy I guess.

I just think it looks a lot better on my car than the dark blue did.

If you're going to dip your car.. at least get the proper spray gun version... goes on a lot cleaner and doesn't end up as splotchy... That being said if you like the flat color the dip gives you just go get matte vinyl and do it right with a proper wrap.

P-dip is ok in my book for little things like a blacked out grill or the like.. but a full car done with cans... not my bag man

1. Why are you driving on the wall.

2. Plasti-Dip Is for small parts at most.

Looks good to me. Skip the pink wheels tho. Go with lime green or something if u really wanna stand out.
