Woodman Dipyourcar.com has a new pearlizer/clear coat top coat you can put on, and it helps a lot with that tacky feel.

I'm dipping my Thunderbird once I save up for the kit. Going with a four layer black base, 2 layer black betty pearl in the pearlizer for depth, and another two layers of empty pearlizer/clear to get it to be nice and deep.

Once I buy the gun and get my car looking nice, I'll post pics and show it off. Hoping to turn it into a side business dipping other people's cars.

xLeGeNDx I like it myself, my self at least last till I can afford to get the car professionally sprayed. Even then I might keep the matte white. I have yet to see many white Mustangs in my area. Usually it's green, or red.

HickRocket1258 Dipping is definitely the new thing. I like the color.

xLeGeNDx iirc, swift's car started out red. The roof was dipped as well

GT Rob Swift the top white mustang with the black roof where you get the defuser and is the roof painted

xLeGeNDx Plastidip will hold up over time, mine on my old silver sixer held up for a year in Texas heat before I removed it. I been thinking about 2 toning mine with the flat black roof like I had done on my old one. But matte white is sexy as it is

Oh and don't drip gas on the dip when you go to the petrol station; it'll eat through the dip so make sure you have a paper towel handy.

My favorite thing about dip is definitely how easy it is to touch up if some of it tears off. It won't, mine did because I tend to park too close to curbs

Oh and Kylar, My rims stayed dipped through the entire winter. Beginning of summer I washed them off and they looked just fine. Plasti-Dip is pretty heavy duty stuff.

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.
