You should start your own dip service.

I doubt it pays as well as my day job and I'm too busy dealing with friends to do crap to do stuff on the side. There's a couple places here in town that are doing it for charge. Waste of money though imo unless you're just ultra lazy cause to do your first dip will set you back less then $100 in equipment and then after that it's there for future needs.

BTW, I obviously have no affiliation with dipyourcar.com but if you order thru them, they have a points system. Basically every dollar you spend is equal to 1 point not counting shipping. 10 points equals $1 towards future purchases. So including this 1 gallon I just bought for a friend this morning... I'm already at $30 basically towards any future purchases. Kinda nice... Anyone that I'm doing dips for I just order myself and pocket the points towards anything I want down the road. Basically 10% of your purchase goes towards future purchases. LOL Damn them!!!

4-5 coats of it!!! Minimum... first two coats go pretty light. You should still see the original color thru the 1st coat and probably the 2nd coat too. Then keep getting thicker and thicker with each coat.


I think puck and grand zj should have a dipping party and knock out both of their rides!!! LOL

Ugh, lunch decisions! I'm not even hungry myself honestly. I may just go to lowes and spend a couple hundred bucks instead... I've got $500 in my pocket from that transmission I sold yesterday and I need about $350 worth of crap for the house so I'm thinking this may be the time to just suck it up and do it since the $500 kinda came outta nowhere...

I figured the $150 would go towards the tire/axle shaft fund...
