Well I have 1 car payment left and my finish is chiping on my car in some spots plus on that I have a couple of spots that have been hit by rocks and pebbles chipping paint off so im thinking of getting my car painted satin black to match the rims and then im going to put the gloss black strips on top from front to back again and paint drums and calipers gloss black along with the inside trim satin black with two gloss black strips on a trim piece then a black shift knob with black seat covers and black painted engine covers. Then im going to night shade the tail lights and spray gloss on em to match the gloss black strips and then I was wondering about headlight covers? Or is it just tint? Or is there an actual gloss black cover for them like clip on?

Thoughts???

Yes or no?

Cause im going toward the black on black affect...

I love the murdered look. Just be prepared to wash your car twice a week or more if you dd it. Shoot, I was my car almost twice a week and it sits in a garage about 23 days out of a month.

What is 'night shade' for tail lights and spray gloss?

I wanted to do something similar for my headlights/tail lights. What do most of you guys do? I'm sure it also gets into some legal stuff...

Platidip=type of paint like rubber were u can peel off if u dont like it unlike spray paint..

Night shade is like spray tint in a can.

And it depends on what you like dont be like someone be yourself make your own unique car:)

Do plastidips come in more colours than just black? I often joke about dipping my steelies lol. And smoking your taillights is a great way to attract cops, it just screams ''race me!'' and ''pull me over!'' IMHO, of course.

Plasti dip is usually used for tool handles for better grip. People have been using it on car parts because it washes away easy if you don't like the finish
