Here you can see where it doesnt look so good





The sides are nasty kind of and im worried they will peel. I think it will even out and look less like a primer job eventualy. And if it looks terrible or a lot of people say they dont think it looks good i can always peel it off. I think it looks pretty sweet though lol

Yeah if i really taped it better i bet it would be good. And yeah its way better than having a shop do it. Like you say its really only if you inspect it and when it really really cures ill probably try and clean up at least the speckles. Oh well it is reversible haha

yeah its kinda depressing haha.. we plasti dipped a part of my friends RSX and it came out really smooth so idk maybe just did to thick of a coat? or maybe just dong another coat could fix it.. ill see what i could do
i used 1 full can and barely anything of a 2nd can

im still hoping it will settle out because it still has little wet looking spots but its angering me its not looking as smooth as it did on my friends RSX haha

Same lol. It looks more like primer but the parts that are matte look fucking sweet. Its making my hood HOT too so maybe itll run a little better off the start in cold weather lol

i jsut washed it and it made it look a little better and on the back of the can it says 3-4 coats is average for people who use it so maybe its because its a first coat?

and even if it stays like this ill still do the whole car because i still like it more then the blue and it doesnt look to bad it smoothed out a bit just from washing it

edit: ok they say 2 coats will bring it out alot better
