Before and after pictures of the dip on my ST165. I decided to do navy blue body with a black top.

Used 2 gallons for the body and half a gallon for the top. They come pre-thinned from dipyourcar.com, expensive though. Very cool look!

i hate dip, it worthless when you get it dirty and if you didnt spray it right then you get messed up spots....... but it looks nice. hope it last a while, but most of all looks better now then before.

Heard that twice now! I wanted to see how it looks fully painted. Still on the fence about the grill, but the dip is easily removable. For the price, dipping is a nice solution.

I just bought the gallons. We had a house sprayer already. The dip has held up somewhat. I have had one big rock hit and chip a spot, quick touch up. There is also a spot on the side skirt coming off because I kick it when I enter/exit the car. Basically try not to touch the dip with anything metallic or rub hard against it.
