Dipped '14 DC

Decided to do a full dip on my '14 DC. 6 coats of anthracite grey. Pretty happy with the way it turned out - although there were a few lessons learned for the next one.

A few things:

-when doing roof - be extra careful with feathering spray gun trigger at end of each pass. I got a bit of extra texture on the edge of the hood near windshield due to this
-dip has to be SUPER wet when peeling tape in areas that are touching - the good part of this is that repairs are super easy
-by the time you get all the way around the truck - they're pretty much ready for next coat. So have to tee up hoppers with more dip more efficiently
-learned this on previous projects - the thicker the better! Makes peeling much, much easier
