Plasti-Dip and other ripoff variations have been making auto mods much easier and non-permanant. People have gone by first just using Plasti-Dip to change the color of emblems to using Plasti-Dip to change the color of your rims and now to Plasti-Dip your entire car. Why has this evolution occurred? Car Shipping Carriers owner, Nicholas Dutko, had dug deep and researched shops that use Plasti-Dip on cars to mod them to see why this trend is happening.
People like to make changes to their car to make them more personalized. Plastic-Dip starting getting exposure when people wanted to just black out or change the color of the emblems. That was a cheap way to do it and it wasn’t permanent. That means if they ever wanted to go back to the original or change to another color they can at any time by just peeling off the Plasti-Dip. Many other companies have come out with a Plasti-Dip rippoff, but Plasti-Dip is still number 1 when it comes to the bottom line.
Once people started to use the Plasti-Dip and notice that it was pretty durable the imagination started taking off. People starting to Plasti-Dip their rims, racing stripes, graphics, etc.. These were all forms of expression and personalization to their rides. Who wouldn’t want to make their car a little more personalized? Now companies are available that will Plasti-Dip your entire car. This is actually something that is the cheapest way to change the color of your car. When looking at companies in Tampa, FL it was roughly $600-$1000 to have my Mazda 3 Plasti-Dipped. I could choose nearly any color I wanted. I think I might try to do a lime green at first and when I get sick of it I will change to another color. That is what is so cool about Plasti-Dip, you can change it any time you want. Just peel off the layers of Plasti-Dip and your car is back to original condition.
Personalizing cars like this started back when Fast and the Furious first was released. People wanted to mod their car anyway they could. As time goes on new products come out to make the job easier. Plasti-Dip has revolutionized the industry. Anyone can buy a can, spray it on (using the directions of course) and have a cool looking new feature on your car.
If you’re looking to change up your ride, maybe hold off a bit and just Plasti-Dip your current car and change the look of your current car. It is pretty affordable and it is almost like having a brand new car (exterior wise anyway).
