    Subbed, Might consider getting my beadlock rings re-colored. This is some cool stuff, might want to get my AK done as well. Also would maybe like to see how much fenders and bedsides would cost.

    Fenders and bed sides would be a challenge. I will check to see if they will fit one dip or not. I doubt the bedsides will. I'm sure we can figure some sort of solution out. Whenever you are ready for some more info let me know. Beadlock rings are cool to do. They can really set off a set of wheels.

    Hey Seth, can you print onto an aluminum bicycle frame and what would be the ball park cost? Trying to decide between powder coat or liquid.

    This is what I have:

    The closest thing to that would be a tiger stripe acu. There isn't a film deemed Air Force or any other branch for that matter. It would get into copy right stuff. The Marines and Navy are the ones that have the closet pattern to their camis.
    I can do the window visors in some sort pf pattern though..

    Hey guys,
    I would update with some pictures but you have all seen the carbon fiber pattern I like to use. My god has there been a lot of it lately. I think that is about all I have dipped for 3 weeks except for Nammer's stuff. I want to make sure people know that we can do more than just that.

    Hi Everyone,
    After a long run of carbon fiber we got some other film choices completed for customers. The following parts are from a 2002 F-250. The pattern is a grey straight wood grain. It looks more brown to me but the name is grey.

    that wood grain looks awesome! way better than factory overlay stuff.

    This whole hydrodipping craze is really neat, I would love to get some stuff done, but feel like I'd be doing it just "to do it" I'll have to think up some good ideas

    It is much better than an overlay. This can never come off. It is etched into the base coat of paint that it sprayed. People get it done to be different and personalize their stuff. I will gladly help you out with anything that you need. If you have any questions let me know.

    For those of us with big ideas, but are too far away, do you sell carbon fiber wrap, or other types of wrap that a DIYer can install on their own truck?

    This may be a dumb question...but what happens if you were to dip something that is clear, like a headlight lens? This of course with a simple decal or maybe a transluscent carbon fiber pattern or something?

    I do not sell a wrap. There are DIY dip kits out there. It can get expensive pretty for someone who watches a youtube video and thinks they are the subject matter expert. I have people calling a couple times a week saying that they tried to dip something themselves and that they couldn't get it and need a quote to have it done. If you are looking for an actual vinyl wrap, 3M makes something called Di-Noc vinyl. Google turns up a pretty wide variety of suppliers for it.
    On a side note about being to far away, there is always shipping. More than half of our business is shipped to us. We get it coming from one coast to the other.

    That is not a dumb question. The only dumb question is the one not asked. There is a way to spray clear coat over something and dip to that and then clear again. It is a tricky window to make it look right. There are a lot of patterns that have clear spots in them to let light through. Most of the carbon fibers can be color changed depending on the base coat. They look kind of strange without any color though. For example, the splash pattern that Nammer had done to his engine bay parts used a red base coat. Any part that you see red could actually be clear or whatever color you choose.


    I hope I have answered your guy's questions. If there is anything else that I can do for you guys please let me know.
