    Dipping is extremely inexpensive material wise but the time involved can be intensive. There is a lot of prep work, buffing, sanding ect.. involved. There is a place locally that quoted me $2,400 for the 12 little pieces of woodgrain in mya w220. The actual cost comes from the fact you gotta buy rolls, and most places are under contract not to sell film to individuals.

    I'm curious on how scratch resistant these are and how well it takes sunlight before fading.

    I figure they're as scratch resistant as the clear coat they put on them.

    Being that you can have Matte or gloss clear coat there's a multitude of things you can do with this stuff =)

    ^ what he said. clear coat is automotive grade. same scratch and uv resistance as the rest of your car.

    When I got my stuff done about 3 years ago. it was approximately $0.40 per square inch. Size is everything I guess (no homo)...

    I wish I could give the definitive answer on scratch resistance and sunfade, but I can say that I live in Az, that I have 35% all around, and that mine has held up perfectly....

    If you use the right clear with UV protection then you are fine. There are many, many products other then cars that this stuff is used for. If it holds up on a combat rifle in the desert it can handle a ride in the car :biggthumpup:

    I would put a resin over it for that added depth

    There is still stuff for table tops that levels perfectly with no need to sanding if you use flood coats. It lays like a 1/4" thick. They sell it at home depot. Dries completely clear no bubbles and has UV shit in it.

    Source did my interior wood pieces as well as other parts like vents, gauge bezel, center console, etc...was black to match exterior then dipped it to black wood. After seeing wringo's car on CL, it inspired me to do black wood as well. Also got some engine pieces and valve cover done in carbon fiber. Turned out good and great prices!! I'd recommend Wells and Ryan to those looking to get hydrographics
