That's unreal. I picked up two cans of the stuff from Home Depot about a month ago and now I am motivated to try it out.

I want to mask the spokes and black out my wheels with this stuff.  It will have to wait until spring though, too cold in the garage right now.

The guys on the local MX5/Miata forum have been playing with the stuff.

better mention. just in case you know the cars. no they didn't come in white here in oz or the usa but only in japan.
so i liked the look of the white one so where you see the car sitting now i just covered in the verandah rubbed it back to the base colour and resprayed it.
local panel beater wanted $7k for the full body respray including inside doors, boot bonnet etc and i did it for $700.
colour is artic white over clear.

I was wondering about that color.  I have a Velocity Red 2004.

The Plasti-Dip fumes are getting to you ;)

I really like the maroon with black and gold pinstripes.  If I were ever going to repaint those are the colors I'd use, with maybe a little engine turned gold leaf.  Those Boar's Head trucks look so cool and old school.
