|We are a
bodyshop. A customer asked us in 2012 to PlastiDip their car. We'd never
heard of it. Mangaged to get some and fell in love with it. It was
notoriously difficult to get. Only PlastiDip UK had it (but were out of
stock mostly) and one other, they sell copies now as they gave up trying
to get it. We tried all the copies and all the versions of thinners.
Coming to the conclusion that NOTHING out there was as good as genuine
PlastiDip. So we continued the search and just started importing it
ourselves. It has outgrown the bodyshop now and pretty much all work
carried out is dipping cars and selling online.
Our aim is to bring proper genuine PlastiDip and the holy grail 'RubberDip S' to the masses in the UK at affordable prices.
We are getting there slowly.
Since then things have evolved a considerable amount. Lots of products come out, all claiming to be 'the best'. Well we buy them, try them, test them and rate them. If they are any good we then try on our car in real world situation. If that passes then we look to sell it. If it fails at any of these stages then simply put, if we wont put on our car we don't have the confidence to sell it either.
So far we have tried PlastiDip, FullDip, Halo, Cardip, Raail, Autoflex, Racer dip, Elastiwrap / Elastidip, Autodip etc probably forgotten some of em.
So, what do we do. Well, we import the FullDip, PlastiDip aerosols and rubberdip spray from the USA / Spain, we also import the proper thinners. Yes this is more expensive, but its the right stuff. We do NOT load our dip with car paint to make it cover a car in one coat. This effects the dip and gives unwarranted side effects, eg not very strong, peeling, brittleness, reactions, peeling lacquer. We also use the factory spec thinners eg Toluene and Naphtha, we do NOT use car damaging thinners such as acetone, 2k or cellulose. If you don't care about your cars paint underneath go ahead and use these.
Why do other sellers do this? Well, its hard work and time consuming to import the proper stuff. And they can buy the cheap thinners at very low cost. Thereby making it attractive. Why load it up with car paint? Well, it makes their product look better. But you will get problems further down the line. And if a customers car is ruined, where will they go? Yep, YOU! Many horror stories of car paint being ruined using the cheaper route, I hear them all the time. So don't be a statistic in fails. Do it right first time.
WE will not compromise and use these underhand tactics to extract money from you. Leave that to them. If you want to give out a professional image, use the right stuff.
All pictures on this site have been taken by us or our customers. All projects on this site have either been dipped by us or our customers using our products. We do NOT use pictures from all over the world and steal from other site as others do. Rest assured, everything on this site is genuine and ours.
We do not PHOTOSHOP everything to make look better than it is either, as others do.
Beware a lot of pigment sites show pictures with a 2k lacquer on the shapes, this makes them look different in the pictures to a MATTE finish.
