That's pretty neat. What was the cost?

I think I'm going to go with that color as well, been deciding a while.

Paint, gun, tape came to about $340 total. I was able to get 20% off my order at dipyourcar.com, so that helped a lot.

Pretty slick. It's making me want to do the 122.

darn too bad, guess I will just have to man up and buy a gun. paint is still somewhat low priority though for me.

Looks good though, very nice job

Do you realize this is a rare car. From what i can see you ruined the eblems, the door lock cylenders, and casued about an additional 1000 in work for someone who wants to actally paint this car. I don't get it. It needed the upper surfaces painted and you completed f-ed the whole car. If you want to do work at this level why don't you go buy a 2002 honda civic where this type of paint would be welcome.

LOL.

zomg jesse u r a CRIMINAL!

a madman!!!!!!!!

mr brick driver, since you're a little slow, lets re-read the thread title. the second word "plasti-dipped" shows us what kind of paint mr auditech used. plasti-dip has the ability to be peeled off. you need to calm down a little bit. he didn't ruin anything, he made it better.

I almost died laughing. How damn dumb can you be? Jesse will never sell this car, so who gives a flying **** of what he does to his own car? If you don't like what he did to his car go plastidip your eye balls so you can never seen it again!


Back on topic, I love it! You need to post the pic of you in the military convoy! And can I barrow your spray gun? I want to plastidip my truck an 240!

Unlike ignorance. The paint is removable... with an unharmed factory finished left underneath..

But unlike brick driver, this car at one time had a desirable factory finish.

How do you really feel bro? What about me rollering my car with house paint? I didn't mask a thing. I just used a razor blade for cleanup.

I've thought about painting my 242 olive drab

bahaha, this is TOO rich. I'm almost in tears over here! You hurt my feelings, i should go cry in a corner because someone doesn't like what i'm doing WITH MY OWN CAR! Oh wait, nope. I don't care if you don't like it. I did it for me, and what style i was going for, not yours. If anything, i PROTECTED the remaining ****ty paint in whatever state it is. Yes I'm aware this is a rare car. I'm also not a pussy afraid to modify it, throw in a manual trans and performance parts to my liking. The emblems and lock cylinders(spelled correctly) have also been peeled off back to their normal chrome finish, because again, IT'S REMOVABAL. Do a little research before you try your snarky half-assed opinions here, dicksauce.

Dude, take a chill pill. Name calling makes YOU look like a dick. mr brick driver isn't impressed with what you did, so what? To be perfectly honest with you, I think it sucks too. At least it is "removable". It's your car, do what you want with it. Before you go throwing stones, you might want to run spell check. You obviously aren't the greatest at "speeelun" yourself.
