    I bought some Fierce Pink Plasti dip from Dipyourcar.com. They do a 20% off sale every year on all pink dip for breast cancer awareness. They show great support for the cause. So I got a gallon. I should get it Monday or Tuesday. I can't wait to get started.

    My plan is to start with the wheels then do a huge ribbon on the hood. I'll have to see how much I have left. I plan on doing all the chrome trim on the car, the nosecone, badges and the spoiler.

    Now all you need to complete the car is a big red papier maché nipple in place of the nosecone.

    That's nice.. I have been thinking about dipping my car as well and changing the color. Question... I have xpel ultimate clear bra and cquartz... do you think dip will stick on top of that?
     
  5. I'm sure the Cquartz will interfere with the bonding, but I would be more concerned about not being able to get the plastidip our of the edges of the clear bra when you want to remove it.

    Ignoring the potential issues with this charity, they are also pretty aggressive protecting the pink 'trademark', so be careful ;)

    Is there any way you can set up a camera on a tripod, and either record video or time lapse it? Would be very interesting!
