Over the weekend I used plasti dip to give a little something extra to the look of her.

@JBimmer92 The trunk looks good. I would have done the whole hood instead of the race stripe look. Good job overall JBimmer92! How many coats did you do? How many cans you use?

I thought about the whole hood, but I'm doing the whole car as soon as my kit comes, its going monster green. I did 4 generous coats and only took 3 cans. Total cost including masking tape was about 27.50

Great step towards what you want for a price that's too sweet to beat. I love the flat black look.

That being said, before you paint with the kit, pics flat black pls. Ill like it more than green.

First post here at the fest (E46Fanatics member). Thought I would share my E46 right after I had cut, polished, and sealed the paint.

Looks awesome so far!

Mine is black right now and fading fast, i've considering dipping the whole car.

Do you have any tips on how to do the whole car?
