Dipped my car

My clear coat was beyond gone and with no money for a good paint job I decided to dip, I used anthracite from dip you car. So far I'm very happy with the results

Looks pretty good. Did you use cans or a gun?

You can't really argue if the clear coat was peeling. Not bad, I'd be interested to see how it looks in daylight.

The color possibilities are pretty crazy now with dip. It took a lot of googling to pick the color I did.

If you want to get rid of the tacky feel just wax it. BUT use meguiars liquid quick wax spray or a similar spray. Do not use real wax. Also make sure you wait a weeek before washing you car after dipping, a quick rinse with just water and no cleaners is ok. Wait two weeks before waxing to let all the solvents dry out or they will get trapped when you wax. I've done my subaru Forester 3 times in 14 months of ownership. My latest is a really wild, its a Chameleon dip so my car changes colors as you walk around it. Dont think.my post count is high enough for pics but I'm FozDriver on instagram if anyone is curious. I'll be doing something crazy to my 01 GT after I get it running

OP, I would 100% recommend you wax. It keeps the dip from fading and keeps it soft so its less prone to scratching. It also maintains the elasticity in the dip so it will come over easy down the road.

You don't need a certain number of posts. Just upload them to imgur and copy the BBcode links here.
