OK everyone, here are some photos of my Dart after doing some Plasti Dip spray on the roof, tint strip (on exterior of windshield), gas door, door handles and scratch protection for the trunk. It has to fully cure for 4-8 hours depending on coats, I used 3 1/2 cans able to spread 5 full coats to the roof and handles. I took the pictures shortly after each coat so the lines will be gone by tomorrow... hopefully... if not then I will just get more and try again. I'll clean it up tomorrow and shoot some clean photos of it and post those too.

I'm not knocking your individualism, but if you're asking for opinions/input I would take it off the gas door and rear bumper. Get some clear 3M for the rear bumper. I use a particular website that sells in bulk but I dont know if I can link it here.

Love the rear lights blacked out, it would look sick on a black dart. Dont like the gas cap; too much. Everything else looks good. Ordered race track lights then after installed I will prob black it out.

The roof looks legit! Almost makes me want to do mine....I would've left the door handles and gas cap for sure though....looks wicked sick regardless!

I was thinking about doing the roof too but decided against it. Paint the wheels too, makes a huge difference. I'm still considering doing the side mirrors.
Definitely...the wheels are a must. Did you do your own or have them done?

I agree with everyone else. The roof looks nice but the other pieces, not so crazy about them. I picked up my redline rallye last week and had it immediately tinted. It came with the hyper-black wheels so it looks incredible. I am still waiting on gloss black racing stripes which I ordered. The car should look sick when I'm done. I will post pictures when I'm done.

Did you take the tires off of the wheels or just left them on?

It's all DIY. Youtube "DipYourCar" and check out the website dipyourcar.com <----which is the official Plasti-Dip website.

Nice lookin' good man!!...I'm only leery of this b/c of durability...it's just sooo much cheaper than doing powdercoat though...can anyone comment on the long term durability of pd wheels?

the durability is amazing. You can wash it etc with pressure washer. Only NOGO is using microfiber cloth. PD comes right off with microfiber
