,hi don't think its that easy to apply Gavin was going to use on his beat but changed his mind I would guess about 2 litres would cover most kei cars

its stupidly easy mate, its all in the prep, clean the car with tfr and then dry it fully and leave ove rnight ot dry any hidden water, clean it over again with some electrical contact cleaner, mask of every thing oyu don't want sprayed then go for it. I used 10 ltrs of premixed plastidip, I done about 8 layers in total giving each coat 15 mins to nearly dry before applying the next.

I got the kit and dip from
www.matt-pack.co.uk/product/earlex-ms2901uk/
the best supplyer in the uk and they don't use the cheap thinners that cause probems

the kit I got

and the finished car





this was first ever attempt of plastidipping and I had never sprayed anything before apart from using rattle cans. its very forgiving aswell, just do light coats, it will look crap for the first 3/4 coats but then starts to build up and fill in the gaps and levels its self it, I will be doing my copen once ive rebuild the engine. I would personal wait for the warmer weather and do it in garage, you can do it when its cold but warm up the dip and wait longer between coats.
if you need any advice just ask mate

If you need any advice just ask, the more layers you do the easier it is to remove at a later date, as it will come off in big strips, the only rubbish thing is don't spill fuel, silicone based sprays or alcohol based products on it as it reacts with the rubber and ether makes it run or makes it go a shiny of colour

I tried it but didn't like it personally not a big fan of it but may give it another go depending on how fast I can sort a few issues out on my car
