Darth Vader Edition lol
Like the Darth Vader look. How much was your tint job? Did you have trouble getting the turbo badge to stick where you relocated it to under the headlight? Pretty cool. I saw someone else bought a veloster turbo badge and put it under the sport badge on the trunk lid, also cool...
Tint was 200 at the dealership and the turbo badging stuck right on. No issues sticking to any area you want. Just make sure you wipe it down clean so the sticky gets as much body as possible
Is the grill from shark racing? I've been trying to find a grill similar to the one they sell but heard theirs is a flimsy

Debadged and matte black dip. This is a picture after coat 3 of 5. First time using plasti dip, it was pretty easy. Thinking of doing bronze next time. Figured black would hide mistakes better being my first time and all. Either way I like how it came out.

Did you remove the wheels to dip them or just cover the brake rotors?

I left the wheels on. The kit came with the bags so I used them and it worked pretty well. I watched a few videos and it wasn't too difficult. The only thing is that our wheels are a little tougher to feed the bag through than most wheels in the videos online. I actually found it easier to remove them by sticking my arm behind the wheels and pulling them out the back. Here's a few more pics..:

Do you mind taking another with the sun facing the side of the car the photo is taken? they're a bit dark to get a good look. I have a white sport too so really considering black dip + glossifier.

yeah no problem. I'm at work so give me a little and I'll try and run outside. Do you want more of a close up of the wheels too?

These are a little clearer. Never realized how difficult it is to photograph black wheels lol
Always keep the sun(any light source really) to your back, one of the first rules of photography! Not always achievable mind you, but a good rule of thumb nonetheless. Also, try to get down low, and level with the wheel. Though, being a white car, it will throw the metering off on what you actually are trying to shoot at.

That looks pretty decent with the semi gloss going on there. I may have to try this on mine, until I can get some dope-ass black wheels proper one day.

Good advice, thanks man. This is the matte black without any glossifier on it. Like you, eventually I want different wheels. That, a tune and slight lowering and I'll be very happy!

Thanks for the pics! I'm definitely thinking of going this route with glossifier too. You mentioned a kit that comes with the brake covers, which is it?

At this stage I was thinking of taking most of a day to take the wheels off and do them one by one haha, I don't really have the means to have the car lifted and get them all off together.

On the Dip website, its the basic wheel kit. Comes with wheel cleaner, dip release for the sidewall, a cloth, the bags and 4 cans of dip. I think you have to add th glossifier if you want it.

The quality of light makes as much difference as direction: shade, after sunset, cloudy day, etc, will show maximum detail.
