    So, I don't have much money to spend on my car... but I bought a can of plasti-dip for a few bucks and some ebay pre-cut window tint ($30) and went wild..

    Thanks, yea plasti-dip is pretty cool stuff.. just know that it doesn't spray like typical spray paint. Spray paint typically sprays and settles flat, where plastidip leaves a bit of texture. I know this is going to sound funny, but I had no problem spraying my roof, but I tried my emblems and I messed them up so I pealed it all off (which was not fun with all of the small letters).

    Thanks, yea, I make sure that I always get the stuff with a warranty so it won't fade or get goofy after time and I've had great luck with doing all my cars that way. Ill admit I have tinted about 5 cars in my lifetime, just from trial and error, but watch a lot of YouTube and its well worth it.

    i was expecting to see something horrible when i clicked a thread titled "ebay tint and plastidip"...upon inspection the tint doesnt look bad from what i can see. ive seen ppl plastidip the roof before, not my style, but if you like it then thats all that matters. nice work with limited funding.
