Manning up the family car

Another Saturday spent at home an due to budgetary restrictions, we had to cancel a trip to Pismo beach to race dune buggies.

I lieu of Camping and dune buggies I decided to add some awesome to the family car.

Here is what it looked like in the beginning.

I found this stuff called plastidip. It is similar to spray paint except it dries into a layer of rubber sheeting that is completely removable incase you change your mind. Best if all it does not hurt the paint.

The package said it was good for making a bug bra, racing stripe or complete covering.

On to the Saturday morning adventure. Warning! Wear a respirator. I got good case of dizziness and euphoria from the fumes. However I think the euphoria comes from brain damage (google huffing paint).

I’m pretty happy with the result. It is even in my sons favorite color, green. Blacking out the rims added an extra level of badassness to the project.

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning.
