      World Rally Blue plasti dip

      The July dipyourcar sale provided for me

      I went with about three gallons of black followed with two gallons of glossifier w/ 100mg world rally blue dip pearls. I was having trouble finding anyone who had used strictly glossifier with the pearls. Seems like everyone online uses 1 gal glossifier and 1 gal clear dip which gives that satin finish.

      I was curious what straight glossifier looked like so I tried it. It is exceptionally challenging because the glossifier is so so so thin that the pearls did everything they could to run. The hood is and part of the front bumper is two places where the pearls beat me

      I plan to add more photos once the plan is finished. Still need to refurb my grill, change the wheels and mirror caps to anthracite, finish peeling all the trim, and paint the B pillar black to give it that sleek look.

      Did something differenet with the taillights from last time too

      Also fishing for opinions. Wheels and mirror caps black or anthracite?

      Looks like it came out great! I really like the glossifier only finish, but just from mixing it with clear (I did 2 glossifier mixed with 1 clear gallon), the glossifier must've been really challenging to evenly apply. It's almost as thin as water.

      My vote is definitely anthracite, but I may be biased!

      I don't know, it's very odd. I even mentioned on the first guys thread that I was planning on doing a deeper blue too before he had even posted. With the new "dip pearls" that came out, they have many shades of blue and they do seem to be the most attractive.

      It was rough man. I set the air flow to high and the material flow to low to try and lay on thin coats. They still found a way to run though. Probably also why DYC hasn't advertised ever trying it.

      I really like the color. Need better picture, but everyone does blue because it looks good on our cars. Everyone and their mom has done flat black, and when trying to accentuate the body lines of the car you need a somewhat light color. Gray looks prime red, blue just stands out. Awesome

      Actually, after I got the flat black on the car I was like "damn". With the already black wheels and tinted headlights, it looked pretty darn good. But that wasn't the mission so I continued lol

      I love that grill. It really goes well with the rest of your car.

      Did you apply the pearl coats the length of the car or panel-by-panel?

      That looks damn good man! I think you should lower it or put a stiff in the trunk, your rear end is up higher than I've seen

      I pretty much did panel by panel. I wish I had done three gallons of glossifier w/ pearls instead of two because on the side you can sorta notice the black underneath. But it also kind of gives it a chameleon effect because at certain angles it looks more black and other angles it looks more blue.

      I don't wish to lower only because I don't want to take all the extra care that comes with it. For god's sake, I scraped my damn 850 front bumper the other day because of a ridiculous incline entering a shopping mall. If you are familiar with a stock 850, this is nearly impossible to do. It would be nice to hug the road better tho.

      I did panels for the first two coats of pearls, then length of the car for the other six or so coats. Despite this, I've still got a very little bit of pooling pearls around where the panels meet. Next go around, I think I'll try all the pearl coats going the length of the car.

      Here's my original thread.

      https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthr...hoose-my-grill

      It took me a while to find the exact material I wanted. Many of them on eBay don't have the right opening heights or look like cheap knock-offs of the Audi mesh. I also didn't want to buy the audi grill because they are uber expensive and I didn't like the idea of cutting up a perfectly functional grill. I found only one seller that had what I wanted and he was selling from Germany so shipping coast was more than the sheet itself. Because of this, I made a plan to buy extra material, cut into blanks, and sell to make up the cost it took to ship them here.

      Every once in a while I still get PMs from people willing to send me their grill and do it for them. I actually just did one last week. You can find your own material and I can help you with the instructions or you can buy a blank from me and do it yourself or have me do it for you, many options. If you look at TRAV_R's build thread, you can find some of my work there too.
