Looks good. Just dipped a friend's wheels and body kit while he's putting together cash for proper spray job. I was impressed at how it's been holding up. We just used aerosol, but I was wondering if that $15 Horror Fraught electric paint gun would work for Plastidip seeing that they DYC sprayer is such low pressure.

The DYC sprayer worked like a champ... My $40 HVLP with 60 gal compressor was crap... I did 2 gallons of gunmetal grey and 2 gallons of arctic black... I was prolly about 2 gallons short too... you can see the inconsistency in the color, but the finish is smooth as heck. I put the dip coat spray on too and it help with it not being so grippy.

Now it just looks primered. I thought you were gonna go with some off the wall color, not the primer aka "flat black" look everyone goes for these days.

Yeah, it is supposed to be black with silver and blue metallic flake in it but obviously, the coverage isnít as good as it should have been. I used 4 gallons too. I am somewhat disappointed as well, thanks for the feedback.

Truck looks awesome. Can't go wrong with black and chrome. Plus the tinted windows puts another nice touch to it. What else is in the works for it? You've done a meticulously great job on it thus far I believe. Details are everything!

I still need to find a headliner and recover the visors in order to call the interior done.

I have a bit to tinker with under the hood... she is running a bit rich, and boggs down with the AC on a little. Not sure what the issues are there either. CEL is back on too, but I suck at trying to read the flashing codes being OBD1.
