Default Dipped the daily!

Finally got around to dipping my car.
The wife and I have been on a "dipping" spree around the house lately.
This was my first full car dip and was quite the learning experience.
There are a few flaws on the car, but over all it turned out pretty good.

I did the car in Matte white, matte black accents, and anthracite on the wheels.
I have pearl to go on the white, but may do that in a few weeks.

Still have a little bit of clean up to do on tires and some rubber trim, but I was spent after past couple long days. So i'll do it later.

Some before shots.




Grill, matte black


Wheels - Anthracite

It being my first full car job it took a while. Mainly it's the prep work and then the un doing the prep work.

I learned a lot of tips/tricks what to do and what not to do that should help speed it up next time.
But total work time.
1- hr wash and body preb
1.5 hr taping and prepping
1 hr to do the wheels
1 hr to do the car
.5 hr on the grill
1.5 hour on un taping, etc.

lol you must've done a great job on the body because I was wondering what this other Si was ("he did two?"). Looks really, really good.

hahah Thanks!!!!

So for those wanting some closer photos here you go. As you can see there is hardly any texture. Im for sure going to put the 4th gallon.

As i've said before I have a little bit more peeling to do and cleaning.
