    Hydro dipping Spark exterior.

    Hey all,

    Not sure if you are familiar with hydro dipping but it is the bomb, way better then vinyl. Doesn't tear or peel. Last year I got my Dad a golf cart for a retirement gift and had it dipped in mossy oak, it came out sweet as hell. I have been thinking my orange would look better in green. I think it is a strong option opposed to painting. I think I am going to work on a design and eventually have some parts dipped. here is a video showing the process if your are not familiar:






    Let me know what you think I am no expert but I think this would work nicely.

    I think so far it holds up very nice on my Dad's cart. It feels like it is the body, nothing to pick at or peel off. We drive it through thick woods never seen a scratch on it ever.

    They use it on guns too so it must be pretty tough.


    At 10:30 he does a pretty heavy duty scratch test and it comes out unscathed. How cool is that?!

    It really doesn't help but according to this site...it's $180 to do a whole rifle.

    Yeah they do a lot of guns with the dips. I think I spent like 800 sending an ez-go golfcart body out of state to be dipped, can't remember specifically though. My Dad drives his through thick woods all the time, no scratches that you can see anywhere. I'/m not sure you can get the shit to come off it feels like part of the body on his cart.

    Once you find the site to buy the sheets from its a lot cheaper to do. from what i understoond, you dont need the overprice kits, just the activator and sheets.
