So for a while I had the car as it is in the pictures above but started to get feed up with the poor paint. It was about 4 different shades of dragon green, had large scratches and the rust on the wing invited me so much to poke that I did, resulting in a fairly large whole. The other wing had a dent just to add insult to injury. My plan was to do a home brew satin paint job. I worked out the misses was away for a week so started to think about what was needed.

Anyways I changed my mind about the satin finish as I figured it was quite a large risk spraying a whole car as I have only ever really sprayied badges and such. I then came across this magic paint called PLASTIDIP which is rubber based and full removable.

www.plastidip.co.uk

www.dipyourcar.com/

So now I had decided the car was going to be a matte finish using plastidip.

So I decided on a colour and a theme and started to get things in place. Wanted to go back to the GTO trim and arches so got a new set which were in great nik, got a new interior and a few other bits and bobs and waited for the other half to jet of to Mexico.

First job was to replace the wings and sort out any surface rust around the car. This meant sanding the rust back and then curing it before recovering it.

So we went to Grimsby to pick up the wings and a exhaust.



And got started.






Then started the task of rust.






And then a light spot of masking, decided that as the paint peels of like vinyl once dry we did not need to mask of much. In hindsight I wish we had done more!






And then we got the rubber paint ready and decided to go full steam ahead.
And this is what happened.















So I cleaned up the trim and added a pinstripe that goes with my new interior.




So once the trim is back on and managed to get rid of a lot of the over rubber spray……





So now I have a condom based paint job which I clean by using panel wipes. For me I like it and it is a massive difference. Some people will no doubt hate but o well. At the end of the day if I decided I don’t like it I can just peel it ALL off. 

More pictures to come as i need to take some better ones.

thanks for reading  :cool:
