I tried one of those DIY dip kits from EZDipKits.com
« on: June 06, 2012, 10:57:02 AM »

It did set me back $100 but I'm very happy with its outcome, being a first time user:













The final appearance:



Anyone else here tried them?

Thanks all...

Its clearcoated with a can included into the set.

The manufacturer claims its very durable, when clearcoated.

Only the future will tell, I will be back if there is something to report in this matter.

Looks great. Can you please give a some feed back on:
Difficulty
What issue you came across
What tips or tricks helped you out.
What would you do different.
How did you fixture it up when you clear coated or primmed.
Did the clear coat go on in multiple thin coats or just one coating.

That looks quite impressive, I would also be interested in hearing about its performance in the field.

The kind of whitish colour that you can see in previous pics seem to disappear when the clear coat hardens, this is how it looks a few days later:
