Well the friend with the SRT-4 wanted to do something to his car before his 7 hour trip back to school. Yes he took his 290 whp [17psi max (12psi daily)] car on a 7 hour trip. He also has 120k miles on the original block and turbo (no rebuild). But I am not hear to bore you with the specs but rather the attempt to plasti dip the whole hood and bit and pieces of the fascia.
Initially we were cautious but after the first spray there was no turning back…or is there?
Good thing it can come off easily when the time comes he no longer wants it. It is in full motion here in the U.S. by a select few people. Here is one business doing an Audi S4 in a custom color
And here is a done up Pontiac GTO or Holden Monaro with it being removed with only his bare hands…
Some report months with no damage to the paint on wheels!!! But be aware that it will take time as around 5 coats are needed.
case in point, darkness is falling
finally finished and have to say it does not look half bad. What really makes dear to the owner is it is easy to accomplish and remove. Not to mention the total sum was $20 USD for the paint of 4 coats, $1.50 USD for blue tape, free paper to cover non sprayed areas, and $4.80 for can sprayer….thats it!!! The owner took it on a 8 hour trip like this 4 days later and all held up well.
I was going through some old videos and found a dusty project that I would like to share. For the past few day, I have led on that a friend of mine has a Dodge Neon SRT4 and figured I will show it in action. Both these cars are/were daily driven and taken on numerous road trips. As stated many times before, a sports car should in compass everything a car is fundamentally supposed to do.
