I've plasti-dipped wheels before, but never a whole car. Personally, I prefer wrapping

I hate the texture of plasti-dip.

I agree on the vinyl option.

why would you dip the whole car? seems very silly. just buy a white one. a TL is not an econobox, a Corolla is.

Why Paint a whole car 1: I'm only 17 2: still paying for the car 3: cause I don't have couple grand to throw down the drain to paint a whole car

Yep. My first car was my mom's 87 Acura Legend that was in a big state of disrepair. Several hundred dollars of my own hard earned money and a summer between junior and senior year, I was able to turn it into a pretty decent ride... but it was still old. Don't bitch about what you got. It's plenty nice. It's not like you're rolling around in some early 90's Corolla shitmobile.

Jeeze kid, you're still in high school. Be patient. I'm 24 now and just getting around to owning a car anywhere near that kind of niceness. My last car was that piece of shit corolla. Focus on paying the thing off so when you get to college you can focus on your schoolwork instead of having to work a billion hours at a job to pay the note on that thing.


Our Father, who art in Autos, hollowed be thy frame. Thy Horsepower come, Thy torque be fun, in Imports as in Domestics. Give us this day our daily fuel, and forgive us our hooning, as we forgive those who hoon against us, and lead us not into chrome accents, but deliver us from rice. For thine is the Cam, and the Piston, and the Rod, for ever and ever. Or until they break.. Amen.
