    $2600 vinyl wrap vs $500 DIY Plasti dip kit. Is the wrap worth the cost?

    We bought two identical 350Zs and have been modifying them to be FUN, daily drivers that you can take to the track. James Pumphrey and Zach Jobe are on Team Hi, and their car gets the expensive parts. Nolan Sykes and Aaron Parker are on team Low. Their car gets the cheap ones.

    Then we test them to see which components are actually worth spending the money on.

    If you want to “paint” or change the color of your car, you basically have three options- A traditional paint job, a vinyl wrap, or plastidip. The gloss of a paint job is intoxicating, but a perfect paint job like that is not only ridonkulously expensive, but it takes forever. There is so much prep work involved with a paint job like!

    So Hi Team is taking the happy medium route: they're getting Hi Car professionally vinyl wrapped. $2600 bucks. A quality wrap job is the best of every world. Hardly any prep work. It only takes a few days to get one done, though if you’re doing it yourself, put your patience-pants on.
    It protects your paint --if it’s worth protecting, it’s totally reversible --for when you change your mind, and you can have any sort of graphic screen printed onto a vinyl wrap.

    Team Low will be plastidipping their car by hand. Plasti dip offers many of the same benefits as vinyl-wrapping, but for a fraction of the price. We bought this plasti dip kit from “dip your car” for $500. It is California compliant, so that might make it worse. But on the bright side, it is relatively easy to do yourself (or so Nolan thought), there’s very little prep work, it’s totally reversible, and it’s easy to fix damage or mistakes. The only downsides are that it’s never going to look like a great paint job, it’s not that durable, and Team Low has to do it themselves

    Does it look $2000 better? Let's find out!

    Why didn't you get the Plasti Dip professionally applied like the vinyl wrap? The ending result for both products can be complete garbage if not installed by someone that knows what they are doing. Was funny to watch though.

            But if they professionally wraped it, why not professionally plasti dip it?

              Exactly why you don't directly aim the pressure washer at the paint, any chip will become a much bigger chip if you do it that way

                The spray gun you used had a lot to do with it too! I work at Home Depot and we sell those there. People always return them complaining about how they don’t spray well and sometimes just spit out the paint.

Either early 90s JDM or just flat out beater junkyard car with more parts than you paid for it.

                                                                                    Ok here’s the thing. Plasti dip is prone to all kinds of problems, including chipping and fading, especially black. However, this was terribly amateur and 10 year old paint and wrong equipment definitely doesn’t help.

There's literally 1000's of videos on how to properly plasti dip, down to the angle of your wrist. 5 minutes of youtube could have saved the low car from looking like a melted mess. I get the point is to show what comes with a budget and installation comes with that budget, but how can you compare the paint methods if one is completely applied wrong. defeats the entire purpose of the series/episode
