Awesome. Im giving this a try soon in my car.
Dude, thanks for the ill tutorial. Im definitely gonna try it out, I doubt it'll look as good as yours though...
how close does this look the Y33 OE woodgrain? I might try it first on my friends yukon and see how it comes out, im sure he'll let me since he has grain envy lol
you tell me?????
i'll be honest with you.. with that seat panel, there should have been more sanding.. at least on clearcoat side. you can actually see orange peel i think.. its either orange peel or the texture of the surface
The side of the seats is not orange peal it is the texture of the plastic. . I did not sand down the plastic because of where the part is. its down at the bottom of the seat where you really dont see it to much only when getting in the car. IF I was doing it for a customer and they wanted it sanded then I would do it but for me it was not worth the extra time and effort.
the diy i was looking for! is there anyway we can get the pics backup?
from reading the process it seems to be similar to the marble finish.
yeah i do it a different way but it involves candies and marblizer. its close to the same way you do it. black base, marblizer, use plastic bag to get your desired effect, then throw on your candy. either way works of course:biggthumpup:
any way to revive this thread? i would love to paint some pieces to match this but no pictures are here lol
do it right and dip it.
Do it right and get real wood.
To expand on that.. We HAVE hydrodipping equipment here at the shop.. I still used real wood. SO MUCH NICER!
overlays look worse than stock most of the time.
