    AFTER:

    Weather has been uncooperative since I finished so I have not really had opportunity for a legitimate shoot. These will suffice for now:

        When I heard green, I was skeptical. But I admit, that looks great, man.

        Looks like you did a great job.
        Really not feeling the lime green, tho
        Either way good work!

        Very nice work. Can't say the color is complementary to the car but that's probably because I don't like to see green on anything but vegetation.

        If you ever go to paint again I'd suggest priming the car before painting. Priming the car will help the paint stick better, and it takes less paint to cover and match when the entire car is primed the same color. Under some lighting conditions, when the car under the paint is more than one color it can show through the paint. The main concern for yours would be the driver front fender as it was a different, lighter color than the rest of the car, but hopefully the extra bit you put on will be enough to keep it from looking slightly off.

        Telco he is using plasti dip , but you are right on having a base coat , he should have used a coat of grey plasti dip before this according to the plasti dip website and apparently the color is going to fade overtime when exposed to UV too much , only reason I didnt buy a kit like this but I still like what he did

        Thanks for the honest comments guys. I know it is isn't that appealing of a color to everyone. I just needed to do something different after driving a ninja mobile in matte black.


        As for the primer basecoat, no this is plastdip, no prep other than cleaning needed.

        For ghost, no this is not a fluorescent color, this is part of their line of bright colors that do not fade from UV and do not need a basecoat.

        If you look, the coverage is actually phenomenal with this particular rubber dip spray color.

          M4rk if you want a gloss black in plasti dip form , you would have to get regular black plasti dip and buy glossifier but it wouldnt look like actual paint

          Well I actually liked the car in the black plasti dip but hate the green. Don't get me wrong, you did a great job and I like the car but I just hate loud green cars. Even on a Lambo I hate it. But its yours and if you like it, well that's all that matters. That being said, make it black again. :p

          I'm older (mid 40's), but I think it looks great. I much prefer that look over two tones or graffics on 4 door cars.

          I like it. It takes a special kind of ls to rock something like that but I think you're ls is doing great at it.

          Hi Guys!

          New member here....I just bought recently (maybe 3 weeks ago now..) my 2005 Lincoln LS, Luxury Sedan...

          Is there anyone have a good pix on how to install an aftermarket HID? How to replace the OEM connection of my low beam headlight?

          I bought a 6k HID with slim ballast...I thought it would be easy....when I saw it, it's kinda complicated for me....Just scared to mess up something...coz it's my everyday car for work too....

          Thanks,
          Wolverine

          ^^ this is not the place to talk about that sort of thing. Search the site. Lots of people have installed aftermarket hid kits. I'm sure there's a thread already about this topic.
