Plasti dipped my style 65s.
 
Ok so i plasti dipped my style 65s. its just temp. not for good. i just wanted to see what this would look like before powdercoat. This is called silver metalizer if anyone is interested. looks great when the sun shines on it.

god i hate my ****ty phone camera but thats. the fastest way to upload pics on this stupid system. it looks 10X better in life lol.

i think it looks good. how many cans did you need? did you paint over the m emblem? can just scratch off and reveal it again.

this red m5 used three coats ...

I like it! It looks better than what I expected from Plasti-dip.

MikesE39 11-27-2012 10:59 AM

i did 4 coats. and ya i took it off the M's after i took the pic. Im prob going to powdercoat them soon with a dark grey like this one.

MikesE39 11-27-2012 06:35 PM

^What does that mean? i hope you arnt calling my car rise... because you must think backwards if you do.

matt540 11-27-2012 06:48 PM

Nice ride, wheels look great. It doesn't seem rice-a-roni :tsk: to me to have a nice ride, but each to their own.

demas 11-28-2012 05:48 AM

looks like accumulated brake dust

but I'm sure it looks better in life;)

hh3uunp 11-28-2012 01:16 PM

Surprisingly they look very nice and not rice at all.

uhhh... 6cyl E39 with spray painted emblems, spray painted rims, rice bulbs in the angel eyes, chinese kidney grilles, and M5 body kit with stickers on the front bumper.... i'm not hating by any means, to each their own, but how can you seriously say that isn't rice?? And if that isn't rice, then what is?

Rice in my book is cardboard,spoilers,22" rims, ricers don't you proper English, crappy body kit that is falling off and spray painted or just primer. I like the grilled black is sporty, stickers I'm in partial. Has long as he is taking good care of his car it's fine with me.

fullthrottle540 11-28-2012 02:12 PM

i guess everyone has different opinions on what rice is...i thought rice was slow cars made to "look" fast by using chinese parts, and paints/plastidip

LalaRay 11-28-2012 03:47 PM

Damn your car is high

MikesE39 11-28-2012 08:41 PM

lala ray. in person it doest look high at all. but i do want to drop it with coilovers. But im kinda affraid to. As it is i scrape all the time with my front bumper, so im gonna have to go for a ride with someone with a dropped e39 before i make up my mind on lowering it.

Lalaray also is deathly afraid of a clutch pedal.

I feel you man. Your car is pretty. Like I said before I consider rice to be a half ass job.

I personally don't like style 65s I would much prefer 19" m-pars.

MikesE39 11-28-2012 09:12 PM

I Love!!!! 19in M pars... the problem is getting your hands on em.

the540wgn 11-28-2012 09:13 PM

Looks good, I like all the mods you've done.
I've never actually seen the metallic P-dip in stores. Where did you get it?

cdawg246 11-28-2012 09:13 PM

Bmw purists always hate on everything that is not stock--i think they came out nice and not rice a roni at all--plasti dip is easy to use and the finish looks great, + if you dont like it anymore its not permenant and peels off

Thank you, you can only get this one online. I got mine from Dipyourcar.com for 28 dollars for 2 cans but on ebay its like 22 dollars for 2 cans so you should get em from there if you wanted them. There is many diffrent colors i never knew about, There is Gold metalizer too which i think looks amazing on rims but isnt the look im going for.

Please don't. The last thing I want to see is a riced out 540 with german flags and spray paint and a license plate on the dashboard (you know what that does to people in accidents, right)
