Hydrodipping is awesome. What pattern are you going to get it Hydro Dipped in? I've looked it up on YouTube and it seems the possibilities are endless. You can buy DIY Dipping kits but I'm unsure if you can get them in Oz because of shipping the activator. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out for you.
I'm going to buy a few cans of clear plastidip with glossifier and spraying a clearbra on the front end and spraying the chrome window trim as it gives it a brushed aluminum look while protecting it. It's two weeks old and I noticed a couple of minor scratches already
I'm also thinking about putting some similar colour brushed aluminum vinyl on the center console where the shifter is because I can see that sucker getting scratched up.
I've heard too many negative stories about 3M Scotchgard and Ventureshield clear bras and subsequent removal and the Plastidip option allows the flexibility to change my mind if I want to remove it.
Looking forward to seeing your progress!
