Heres a few pics of the plastidip I said I was going to do long ago, did 4 coats top and bottom, looks great and I really like it. Ill probably have it vinyl wrapped in the future.

oh yeah, debadged her too ;) will take some dslr pics when shes dried and clean.

Vancity, looks good. I have the same done to mine, except I dipped the Q50S rather than debadge. I used 4 coats of black and 3 coats of glossifier on mine. I'm looking to do more, but playing with dip tint to get a darker/richer black first. Then I'll do my window trim and front grill area. Only want the Infiniti Mt. Fugi emblems in chrome on the car front and back.

Ive been tempted to try glossifier but im not I like the texture as ive never seen one in person yet. but the idea of it sounds good. ill be doing my grill chrome trim, just trying to figure out the best way to mask off the mesh grill itself without taking off the whole grill.

The glossifier works well, but I find the more coats you put, the smoother the texture. It can have a tendency to cloud up if humid out when applying. It gets real smooth if you spray a coat or two of Naptha over it as it re-liquefies the top layers and smooths them out more.

It is more involved and expensive to wrap, but you can count on the finish being exactly what you would expect when completed. Pros and Cons to everything. Post up pictures with what you end up doing.

I did feel gloss would be nicer, maybe satin, which is why wrapping is still being considered.

The product is called plasti dip, color is black. its a rubberish spray that sprays on wet and when it drys with enough coats, it peels off completely.
if youre in the states and you wanna get some I think dipyourcar.com has the best prices, or a local hardwear store will have some as well?

Hey Van/Tony, how did you guys remove the Infiniti rear arch? I need to put foam inside due to my subs.

I ordered two cans of AutoDip. I've read and learned a lot about their products and looks legit. Better than plastidip for sure.

Are you using AutoDip or wrapping? You peaked my interest with that product and just wondering how it will turn out. I feel like vinyl over the lettering is impossible to make perfect.
