I ended up using 2 gallons,I had 3 and could have probably used it all if I didnt try and rush the job the night before I left. It turned out ok,but it could be thicker. And if you plan on just spraying over the lights and windows to peel off after,make sure you get a good even thick coat over them like the rest of the truck. Otherwise you will be peeling little tiny pieces off all day,or using a razor blade. Or if you have the time just tape/paper off the areas you don't want dipped. And if you tape off any area that you want to stop the dip(like I did below my rear window on the back of the cab) take the tape off while its fresh and wet. If you wait it will peel up the dip in spots with it. I will say the stuff was fun to use,covers really well/fast and pretty much impossible to make it look bad cause it self levels so well.

Here are a few shots I never posted of the dip in progress.

Thanks for the response!

I'm tossing around the idea of dipping the truck after I get rear bedsides on and the 8.8 under it.

been reading over at dipyourcar.com about their kits and it seems cheap to do if you do it right!

No prob! Yeah I had been looking at doing it for quite a while and finally pulled the trigger on one of their kits. Now I can just buy the sprayable gallons whenever I want to change the color and go right over the blue that's on there if I wanted.

I have watched a few of the videos on dipyourcar and it looks like it is easy to add additional coats (at a later date), as the fresh dip will soften and adhere to the existing base coat. Cool stuff.

Finally got another grill surround. Now I just need a new emblem or I gotta throw the black billet back in. But I kinda like the old honeycomb. This pic also reminds me I need to get after making my heim steering.

Yeah I really want to dip my 250 too. yeah it covers really well, and self levels like magic. As long as you put on a heavy enough layer by the time you are done lay'n coats,It'll peel off anything you dont want it on. Or when you want to go back to just paint.

Heck yeah, it's like a criminals wet dream. Like real life GTA. Just pull into a garage and peel it off. "Got an APB on a white ranger"..pull into a garage,tear it off,pull out with a red,black,blue Ranger or whatever yer paint color is.

And if you already have it dipped, you can just keep going over it with whatever color you want to do next.

Andy has been watching too many GTA 5 trailers. I prefer suicide by cop, usually driving a tank with turret shooting backwards to propel it faster
