I've done a moderate amount of research on plastidip, and here's some info you may find useful.

First off, the only reason I'm bringing this up is that your paint is not the original paint. I've had my car fully plastidipped and kept it for about a year before peeling it all off (I own a 2010 Lancer DE). I had been looking at forums and videos and everything I could prior to spraying my whole car. One thing that came up is that several people had posted complaints about the plastidip ruining their clearcoat. The common factor with most of these cases was that they had sprayed their car soon after having their car repainted. Many said that dipping your car after a fresh paintjob prevents oxygen from getting to the clearcoat, thus altering the curing process of the paint/clearcoat. The result was the clearcoat being very hazy and murky when they would peel the dip off. I had nothing but a great experience with plastidip and my clear is perfectly fine, because I still had my OEM paintjob, meaning that the paint on the car had ample time to cure. Many people said that if you're interested in dipping your car (whether it be another color, or with glossifier), then you should wait anywhere from 1 to 2 years after a new paintjob to allow for the proper amount of curing time for your paint/clearcoat. Attached are pics of my car dipped, and after I peeled it. The pics are from a phone so you aren't gonna see too much detail haha.

BTW your car looks sick.

Thanks everyone! Sorry for such a late reply. I have not been on here for a very long time. Just a quick update. The car is running great and I painted all the carbon fiber black. The carbon fiber took a beating because of the heat. I actually like the black look and maybe later today I will take a picture of it. The transmission is holding up well after almost 4 years. I did change my headlights but I think that's about it.


I'm getting ready to do some stuff next year. I will post when time comes.

My Transfer Case is dying. I ordered a used one and it should be here soon. It's used but has 36k miles and I got it for $650.


I notice some issues with my suspension. A lot of boots leading from the axel and the control arms. I got CV joint boots for all the axels, total of 8. Got a ball joint for the lower control arms and some whiteline parts that I will be installing also, wish they had everything I needed as a product.
Whiteline KLC163 - Front Sway Bar Links
Whiteline W53382 - Front Lower Control Arm Bushings - Inner Rear Position
Whiteline W0593 - W0593 Front Control Arm Bushing


Ordered some Nylon And Stainless Steel Braided Fuel Oil Gas Line Hose Black because some of them are starting to look bad on the car and some High Temperature Silicone Vacuum Tubing Hose.


Will be ordering a new transmission radiator fan as my fan is DEAD.

That means when I get to the shop, it will be a busy day.

Ok currently planning to do a relocation of battery to the trunk. I'm planning on a decent sound system and I need to relocate the battery so that I can have a full size.

For the trunk:
Optima Yellow Top 34/78 Battery
Optima Billet Battery Tray Racing Race Trunk Relocation Box Hold Down
Military Spec Battery Terminal Top Post Kit
2 AWG Flexible Welding Cable Black and Red

For Engine Bay:
Part Number: 8571A017 (Joint Wiring)
Part Number: 8571A018 (Fusible Link Cover)
Part Number: 8571A019 (Fusible Link)
Custom bracket to hold the joint wiring box

Currently this is what I plan to order.
