Default Plastidipped my hood!

For those of you who asked for pics when I was done...here ya go! I love it! A couple tiny problem spots but 99% perfect. I also am going to grab one more can and do the fog-light covers, the little pieces next to the headlights, and the side skirts.

Before:

Ill post updates when i do the foglight covers, side skirts and those litte pieces.

What do y'all think?? Took me about 3 hours start to finish, 3 healthy coats

Looks like you did a good job on it. Not my cup of tea though

not too shabby. ill admit i wasnt too sure how the white hood scoop was gonna look but it not bad. I hope that was a very heavy 3 coats. The more goes on the easier it is to peel off in one piece.

Turned out good. The hood scoop looks really good on the car.

The first was a moderate coat, the next 2 were pretty heavy. I used 3 cans for the whole hood

Thanks guys btw!

X2. I never got why people paint their hood a different color. Just looks like a bad junkyard match if you ask me.

Having said that, the plasti-dip came out nice and if that's what you're into then you did well.

I guess it has that aftermarket racer hood look. In most cases though the vehicle dosent have the guts to follow up that look.
