Soo the reason I haven't been on much the past couple months is because a friend of mine started up a automotive plastidip shop and hired me as the head painter lol

So far I've finished about 6 vehicles now.

My own car twice in Matte White and the current Aluminum Silver





Friends Frankenstein MR2 in Anthracite Grey





Shop Owners 498 hp AP1 S2000 in a Custom Camo Green Pearl.





Friends 3rd gen 3sgte MR2 in matte Red




Sprayed a Matte Clear bra over a Snap On Tool truck



Customer's AP2 S2000 in Pearl White

My brother wants to know how much it cost for the AP2 to get done. He's been wanting to go out of state to get his car done.

Theres a handful of DYC certified installers in cali.
it depends on the size of the car and the color he wants to go with.

He as an AP2 S2K as well so he was curious about what that one cost i guess. But we'll do some research for local(ish) places.

Thinkin bout plastidippin my car matte black. Can i still use a car wash with that stuff? The shop im going to have it done also said the surface would feel sort of like rubber a little? Sounds kinda weird to me honestly

Like a smooth rubber, check out your nearest department store to see if they have any aerosol cans so you can play with to get a first hand experience.
You can also check out dipyourcar.com and their youtube channel, they're the guys who pioneered plastidipping cars.
You can use the same car wash stuff along as you don't apply straight wax.
The wax+soap mixtures are okay to use.

He's got a convertible. Thanks for the info Koolaid, I'll relay the info to him. I've been trying to get him to put some love into that car and fix some things so it can look extra good again.
