Wink I Plasti-Dipped my M5! Well sort of. Lol!

Lady and Gents,

I got tired and fed up with looking at my door handle chrome on my Triple Black M5 and decided to do something about it. I wanted to take the time to get my door handle chrome wrapped with some matte black 3M wrap, but my schedule is too crazy, and the place I wanted to take it to is too far away and they're only open on week days. So I took matters into my own hands. Went down to Home Depot when I got off of work tonight and then proceeded to apply Pasti-Dip (From Blamo!) on my chrome door handles. I also bought some painters tape and made it so only the chrome on the door handles would be exposed. I then applied 3 coats of Pasti-Dip, waiting 10 mins between each coat. I used a razor blade to seperate the dip that was stuck to the tape from the chrome strip and viola no more chrome! It was my first time Pasti-Dipping something. I've watched some YouTube videos about it and it just seemed like it was time to get with the times, I mean all the kids are doing it now on their Audi A4's and Civics, it's all the rage! It seems to be legit, I just hope that it lasts for a while. If not, then I'll reapply it. The whole job only took me a couple of hours and most of that was just waiting for it to dry.

Well hope you enjoyed the cool story and the pix. Laters!

Lamborghini now has an SUV. Ferrari just announced they are going to make a Crossover. I'm just waiting any day now for McLaren to announce they are coming out with a Minivan.
