Yep, if you have a spray gun that's the way to go..

Dip will not hold up on wheels..the brake dust will eat it in a month's time. If you prep and spray a car right(7 coats+)..it will last a year or so, but it is "fun" to clean

I've done several cars with it, and it's completely different than paint. DO NOT USE AN HVLP GUN..it will dry before it gets on the car, and will have the texture of sandpaper.

If it's below 70 degrees or raining out..it will not lay out or stick properly

If you mask off windows or trm/large emblems, trim the lines before you pull the tape

The newer wagner sprayers lay it out real smooth. If you like it and want to keep it, you can clearcoat over it

Removal: never peels off a clean as the videos make it..you will have to run with a microfiber, or use Xylene and wipe it off

This car was black when I started:

Thanks for the info Justin, I just bought the wheel kit to practice it's cheap, if I do a car I'll get a kit they're gun is supposed to be setup just for the dip, at least that's what they claim anyhow..

I would just spray it. It will look fine till your ready for a new paint job. I had it on one of my cars for 3 years and no problems. Rims and all...

Did you use their HVLP system or a HVLP gun for normal auto paints?

neither I just used the cans. Everything came out great except the trunk had lines in it at different angles. So to avoid that I would use their HVLP system or if it doesn't bother you just spray lighter closer coats. If you click on the picture you can see what im talking about on the trunk.
