I thought it was a vinyl wrap that is temporary.
doesn't plastidip just peel off?
it does peel off, nut it also holds up pretty well
Supposedly when it dries after a couple of days its harder to peel off, if any little part messes up it is easily fixed
Oh cool didn't know that
I think the trick to Plasti-dip is to apply a LOT of coats, like more than 5, to get it on really thick. Makes it super easy to peel off as a big sheet.
Although I got my first first-hand experience with it today, and as expected, I was not impressed with the finish.
Did you buy the matte or glossy?
If evenly done it should only use 5 coats,
Did you watch the youtube videos?
I have no interest whatsoever in using plastidip on my car.
Yes because the doors and fenders on the corolla were top notch.
I agree with gold, I tried plasti dip, not impressed with the results AT ALL.
It just looks so cheap and ricer. And the stuff I saw and felt was spotty and stickyish.
looks like the key is to get a good gun
ehh, the gloss makes it kinda look like a cheap paint job. I like the satin look of that s4 better.
yea i agree, was mainly pointing out the smoothness and consistancy of the coats. no rattle can there hahah
Ya i think im still going to try it. But ill definitely invest in a gun.
The kit brings the gun, and everything else you need
Well guys it seems that I do have to replace the clutch, Wish me luck any tips?
Mechanic wants $$$$850, I said F*** That lol, I'll buy the kit for $$250
I wish there were more diy videos/tutorials for this car *sigh*

And for $250 i hope you're getting a stage 1 sport clutch
It's actually oem, but it brings a new flywheel so I can't complain
Lol 250 $ that's good I paid 850$ for my mazdaspeed 3 clutch with lightweight flywheel , the oem setup is 1800$
lol the mechanic wants $500 total parts/labor !!
Dosent sound too bad.
last clutch i bought was $80. I guess thats why it's basically ruined 10k miles later.
You get what you pay for.
x 1 million bazillion trillion.
It also helps if you don't suck at driving manual.
Yeah. God forbid you stall once or twice. Le eye roll.
I didn't say you have to be great, obviously everyone stalls or gets a bumpy start from a light, eyeroll yourself for putting words in my mouth. I'm talking about people that really don't know what they are doing, just slamming gears around and riding the clutch all day, basically being a woman.
When I said that I was recalling a certain conversation I had with press. So le eye roll back for you thinking I was putting words in your mouth.
