Golf 5 GTI Gets Copper Metallic Plasti Dip

The problem with wrapping a car is that it never comes out perfect. You have warping because of the sun and anybody who knows the system will be able to find the defects, the creases and the excess behind the door sills and so on.

There might be an alternative though: Plasti Dip. It's a reversible process, just like wrapping, and the good news is there are no creases. You'd think that there isn't a lot of variation in the system, that you can't get the crazy metallic colors with Plasti Dip, but you can.

This video by DipYourCar shows how a multistage system that takes an old Golf 5 GTI from old and average to new and exciting.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
