+1 for plasti dip..

although not sure how well it will work on a whole car, but for the price you really can't beat it. 3 gallons of paint is like $150 for a whole color change. Plus if you don't like it just peel it off. Just remember to lay it on THICK that way you can remove it more easily.
Will do! Plasti dip seems like the sh*t

still not low enough /:

As a warning, do NOT use Flexidip by rustoleum. It is incredibly watery, eats through plastidip and plastics, does not have a smooth finish, and it's roughly the same price as Plastidip so why bother?

I honk at other Celicas on the road.

I was only warning because at my hardware store, its right next to each other. That and it comes in red, which seems to always be out for plastidip.

I kinda want to dip my car just for the project, looks like it'd be fun. I love working with the stuff, and use youtube as a guide, there are 100s of videos on there

I wanted to do that too but, the only thing we can get in Cal is spray bombs and its not economically feasible.
Hmmm... Maybe I'll order a kit and have it shipped to my sister, out of state. A good excuse for a road trip.

I have GOT to get a new photo of our Celica
