Cool Plastidip Crash Course

So once upon a time I saw a few cars on the Lingenfelter website with flat black paint jobs, and I decided I wanted to try out the look before getting my own permanent one for a few thousand $'s...

I used 14 plastidip flat black cans, 4 coats, and about 5 hours of work.





Question: I'm looking for radar-absorbing flat black military grade paint, and the more I look, the harder it is to find. Anyone know of a good place to find such a product?

Looks like a waste of smurfing time. Might as well have spray bombed it. Shit I spray bombed my 89 CRX SI in my garage with 2 friends with it 34 degrees outside and it turned out better than the jank ass POS you posted.

IDK why you posted this monstrosity here. smurfing jank ass troll.

GTFO brah. Seriously. This is ill as frack.

im still trying to figure out what was on the hood before? (sig pic)

radar absorbing paint... ive been on 2 separate deployments on 2 different carriers and the flight deck has this kinda stuff everywhere because it is a cluster F of electromagnetic signals going everywhere.

however for us to be able to shot "snoopy team" (getting video of other ships) we had to cover our cameras with tin foil... since we really couldn't paint our cameras with this stuff. i guess you could cover your car in tin foil? might actually look better with the desired results lol.

i guess thats why if you are going to plasti-dip your car, its best to use a sprayer. not rattle cans.

You can use a F'ing 50 dollar wagner to spray that shit and it will look decent you bum.

Instead it looks like my primer grey first car that I thought looked good. When I was 16. And it was a $300 car.


Sweet $300 car bro.

Well, my paint job was going to shit in the desert sun, so I decided to have some fun. And no, I didn't try to make it perfect, nor was I trying to make it so. It was merely to give me a cheap way of getting an idea of what the color would look like on the car, nothing more. A fun little experiment that can easily be reversed, contrasted to the $3000 paint job I was originally going to get over the holidays.

So anyway, no one has really answered the core of the issue-- does flat black look good on a GTO if done correctly (use your imagination kids) or is the flat black not worth it?

The quality of flat-black paintjob I intend to get, if I deem I still like it in a year, will be closer to this:

I'm guessing ya'll are going to hate on the corvette too I imagine. lol

And yet, only GTO 22 has answered my question...

I'm not trying to put my GTO on show yet. I KNOW the quality of the paintjob is shit. Only a moron would think it was a good job. It was an effing experiment. Holy crap.

I'm trying to determine whether I want to purchase the quality flat black paintjob or not. Trying on the color before ripping it off and making it permanent. That is all.

Some of ya'll need to be a little more focused here.

There have been a few that I've seen done here and they looked good for what it was. Not something I would do on my car, but it came out good.

Not sure why anyone would pay several grand for a flat black paint job. The car will just look like it's unpainted. I've seen satin black come off well though.

I've seen it pulled off by the professionals. You're no professional.

My 2003 Element DD has a better finish on the plastic panels.

Though it's an improvement over whatever Squidward splooged over your hood previously based upon your avatar.

Seriously, does he cum tribal tattoos?

Your GTO reminds me of my buddy's eclipse that is temporary in black primer. We call it the stealth bomber. Lol He is in the process of painting it with glossy black aircraft paint, which cost a lot!!
I honestly think matte theme especially matte black is overdone too often along with everyone doing murdered out cars, trucks, bikes, etc. That is just my opinion. Other people love that look though. That being said, I have seen a matte dark blue or matte sapphire on a few cars that look amazing.
