    I think it looks good, def a high vis orange though. You could go hunting in the woods with it and still find it. I personally wouldn't platsi-dip a whole car but it's funny you say it's a lease. Hope it comes off okay if he want's it removed.

    Xb is the cube style... It was Toyota's answer to the Honda Element before the Cube and Soul were off the drawing board, but they were too embarrassed to put the Toyota name on it so they made a new company for it :D

    I've always wanted to paint an Xb with that chrome paint, but a couple of those longitudinal moonroofs from Nissan on it, and paint the spoiler black with a black line down the rear.

    It'd look just like a toaster.

    I think its pretty cool! I have painted a few rc cars with similar colors and for rc cars it turned out pretty allright! Hell I had my vw bug painted to match an rc car. I have always wanted to do some of my rc paint jobs to something in real life just to see how badass they would look

    Yeah I wondered about the tight spots. That's still crazy though that it just peels off like that. I am going to do my lower grill/valence for the hell of it and see what it looks like.

    Why was he getting pulled over? Just because he was standing out?

    Here is it coming off the back door for those of you wondering how easy it comes off. It came off in big pieces i was able to get the hood off in 1 piece. Its white underneath because we sprayed white first then the orange

    Brightens the orange.

    Common practice. It is generally recommended to spray white under Day-Glo paint, particularly over black.
    Same reason there are multiple colors of primers. With some top coats it doesn't matter, but with metallics and other more transparent paints, the primer color impacts the depth and brightness of the final finish.

    Ugh I'm personally not a fan of Plasti-dipping entire cars...the overspray in small crevices are impossible to remove.

    $10 you can't remove the plasti-dip completely from the car.
