A Naturally Aspirated could be the favorite for some, and a twin-turbo charged might fascinate others, but one thing that most of the car enthusiasts have in common is our love for paintjobs. Besides, the hustle of modding is incomplete without having a ride stands out in the crowd.
What is Dipping?
If you are a lover of car mods, you might be used to hearing the term ‘Dipping’ every now and then, and whoever mentions it does so with due respect! Dipping is a PVC based visual enhancement, which unlike its counterparts, such as painting and wrapping, is easier, economical and on top of all, versatile.
Over a decade ago, dipping cars was anything but a DIY. In fact, when making the decision to dip your car, you were looking at low-quality products and services from shady distributors, and more importantly, bills that would turn your wallets skinny. Luckily, things have changed immensely since Dip Your Car took the automotive market by storm in 2011. Not only have they redefined dipping through their extremely reliable and durable products, but have also made the mod greatly affordable than they used to be.
Dip Your Car or DYC was founded ten years ago by Fronzie, a dipping enthusiast, who loved spending time in his garage experimenting on his cars with Plasti Dip products. Today, Fronzie, along with his team, is committed to sell quality assured dipping products.
All the dipping products by the DYC are available at their official website. The interface of this website is responsive and user-friendly. Moreover, all the products have been categorized properly which makes navigation easy. The search bar, which is also highly responsive, helps you find your favorite products and also suggests the most-searched items. Apart from that, the product description is amazing. Beneath each of the products, you would see three tabs for the description of the product, a brief description of each of the components, and a video demonstration as a cherry on top. If all of that wasn’t enough to answer your queries, you can scroll to the Q&A tab located at the bottom where you can read question and answers from other customers and ask questions as well. Right next to that is the ‘Reviews’ tab where you can read reviews from the customers, which can usually be highly helpful in making a decision.
1. Pre-Assembled Kits
The website of DYC is rich with dipping products for dippers of all taste and levels. To make the process easier and more economical, you can now purchase all the required accessories in the form of pre-assembled kits depending on the size of your car and the color you need.
For example, if you are a first-time dipper, you might want to choose the Beginner Vehicle kit, which is the most popular option and includes colors that can be sprayed easily and are greatly affordable as well. However, if you are up for a bigger challenge, you may purchase the Advanced Vehicle Kit, which has been exclusively designed for the experienced dippers, and comes with the Dip Pearl Kit, which are more difficult to spray but look absolutely gorgeous.
Similarly, if you are looking to throw on some colors on to your wheels, you can go for the Shop All Wheel kit, which is comprised of a variety of colors for you to choose from, or shop the Best Sellers which contains an exclusive list of the most popular colors you might like.
Last but not least are the Emblem and Trim blackout kits that are super cheap and allow you to black out the grills and emblems. Having blacked out badges and vents is a must if you want your car to have a mean and aggressive look.
Aerosols are the best for quick and light paintwork which is why you will fine 4 different aerosols at DYC:
· The HyperDip, which is the newest arrival, is a high-performance aerosol and also the primary component of the emblem and trim kit.
· The Plasti Dip aerosols are available in 4 types of colors including solid, metallic, muscle car, and fluorescent colors.
