    Second pic doesn't show up.

    Anyways, idk I'm not crazy about it. I had contemplated the same idea for my car...but I felt like it was defeating the purpose of having the side skirts/body kit. Hence from a distance these parts won't stand out, looking as if you have a bare body kit.

    I think you would lose the more aggressive and lower to the ground look. But that's where the beauty of plasti-dip comes in...It's removable!!

    Why not just use white plasti dip? It wouldn't stand out nearly as much.

    if he just uses regular white, it will stick out like a sore thumb and probably look even worse than black.

    if he gets white & adds the pearlizer offered from plastidip (Plasti Dip Enhancers | Dip Coating | Plasti Dip Interntional), it might be a close match.

    Hmm, I didn't know about the pearlizer. But I guess there is only one true way of knowing... If I get some time this weekend I might give it a shot. I'll post pictures if I do.

    And the 2nd picture was just a picture of a white GTR.

    Doesn't really look that bad honestly. But it makes it look cheaper, like when Audi used to do the plastic crap all around their car in the early 2003 A4 models.
