As for a good results depends who is doing it for you and how it is mixed and where they bought plastidippin.
Well the white went on this afternoon, tbh it was more of a pita than I expected, the white really does not want to cover! took me a long time and I wouldn't recommend anyone doing a dark car white, but damn the s3 looks so much better in white! there's 15 Ltrs and 9 coats on there now
im liking this colour:
or this but its custom
White and grey, I like the blue and that would be my next choice
Can we have progression pics please?
I deeply regret buying a black car, the 8p is a really nice shape which is hidden in black
you will need a gun and don't forget a decent mask, this stuff smells 100% proof
You want a respirator, just don't use a paper mask
Ill update this thread with pics tomorrow when I've removed the overspray
Don't mean to be a nancyboy but surely you have to notify the DVLA and your insurance company about the colour change? I haven't heard anyone say anything.
Looks cool though, I'm tempted as I'm getting serious amounts of scratches and scuffs from being parked on the street, and it seems no one can park or walk past without hitting my car.
Here is the result of the white! it's not finished yet though as I've got to do the strip at the bottom of the bumper and the grill in black aswell as the rear valance and possibly wheels
Looks great mate. Deffinately thinking about mine seriously.
Im also thinking about Matt black again, not sure how a colour will come out. Will wait for e chap doing his blue and see how that comes out
If I were you I'd go for a colour rather than just matte black, I think blue would be a safe option and look good, I'd avoid the blaze colours if you are going to be keeping the colour change for a while as its widely know that the colours quickly fade
What is the actual close up finish like? Is it like a orange peel or is it really just flat matt?
it depends how thick you spray your coats, it's not glass like as it doesn't have any laquer, but it feels a bit rougher than paint with no laquer, the white sprayed on quite dusty I found and gives a less smooth finish than the gray did.
the black I've sprayed from a can was quite smooth
I don't at the moment, it's been raining here all day
That looks awesome, I don't think (at least from the photos) that you need to paint anything else white - I love the contrast of the black, grey and silver on the white...
Now i'm considering it... as my paintwork is fooked!
That looks smart.
Did you paint this outside by any chance or inside?
Looks pretty sweet I must admit. Finish looks good from the front.
I can see where the critics are coming from though.
Would like to see some different angles and close up shots.
I know its not going to be perfect, I'd just like to see some different pics.
Yeah it's not too bad outside but I felt rushed to get it masked and sprayed incase it rained, it stayed sunny throughout in the end
I did this as well with my replica, I only used 5L so didn't look as good as yours. White is a ***** to keep it looking decent. Lots of cleaning and touch ups. Took it off after 2 months. Still planning to do another sometime.
Here is mine:
