Should I do my G35 in Matte black?

Got bored tonight, so I did it anyways.

What do ya guys think? Took me about 4 hours.
Going from Light Silver to Matte black in 4 hours.... Not to shabby.

Yup, came out as nice and wrap.
I own a Car vinyl wrap and advertisement shop, so I wanted to try a new product. Ive heard good and bad things about Plasti dip for the past year, so I wanted to try it, and since I am one of those "go big or go home guys" I tried it on my car, since it was going into the shop next month for a "Canadian bullshiat salt on the roads causing rust bubbles on the rear quarter panel removal and paint job"

Came out really really good, for some reason I didnt expect it to come out this nice. Ill post some high def pics tomorrow with close ups to see.

I wouldnt suggest someone who has no experience in body work at paint to try it and not expect it to come out looking a little rough... but Im sure if someone who like the above stated took their time and REALLY took their time, they could do it just as good.

Be prepared for the comments you might have when you wake up - they might not be welcoming - that's all I have to say.

You might wanna look up the thread that some guy plastidipped his whole car, and when he took it off, he peeled the original paint off with it. Just a heads up.

Yes, like I said above, I wanted to try a new product, (That is still pretty hard to get in Canada, thanks to our Laws on chemicals and language labeling) So yes, I tried it out.

Dont worry, Im prepared for the comments.

That isnt a problem with plasti dip, thats problem with a 3000+ PSI pressure washer with the wrong nossle at point blank range lol.

But ya, but again like I said, its going in for a full paintjob in a month anyways, so I figured I would try it.

Ill also add that this is NOT spray bombed.

Used, HPLV Spray gun
3 gallons of Plasti dip, thinned out 50%.

This is about 6-7 coats. This is why it came out the way it did, even, ZERO texture...

you would not get it this smooth with a spray can. I really cant put it into words how smooth this is... Ill get some VERY close up pics tomorrow with my D50

Honestly.... Looks much nicer than most of the matte paint jobs ive seen.... My suggestions would be some stance or F&f coils for a good drop and some custom wheel setup with nice lip and brushed aluminum face wheels.

Curious to see what tha jams and sunroof trim (inside) look like.

Winter rims
Dont know what I am going to do for summer rims yet, Might just throw on my GTC01's and call it a day. But they arnt staggered, and only 8.5's, and since I just put on my Momentum Single turbo, I am spinning 4th with my winters, so gonna have to go meatier.

I have a set of Cusco Zero 2's going on once the streets are swept.

Canada dude It was only 7 degrees today lol.

I was talking about replacing it cause it looks beat/dented, not removing.

Ya, I cant replace it with same number, I will get new numbers, and these numbers have meaning.

The ReStylin Plates will go on once I get them in a month or so.
