We have now replaced the standard doors (29.6kg each with glass) with some Nissan Skyline Carbon doors we have with lexan windows (9.8kg each).
That is a total weight saving of 39.6kg on the doors alone. The new (but already used) doors did need a bit of work to prepare them for painting, well, Plasti Dipping.
We split out the wing mirrors to sand and paint
The bodywork needed a small amount of attention, and sanding back.
However, this is exactly the reason we chose plasti dip to use on the car. It does get battered about, marked, knocked, bumped, and it can be a pain keeping the car looking good without going to and from the body shop.
Quick blast with the gun
Job done ! We think it has a great look ?
What is our review of plasti dip ? : Please bear in mind, these are our own thoughts, not meant to be given as advice or recommendations.
We used probably 7-8 litres in total, which included testing a copuple of panels, re-doing one panel and spilling some, and what was left over when we cleaned the gun out.
Buy the Gun Wash - This is key to keeping the gun clean so it sprays well
Buy the panel wipe - Needed to clean surfaces prior to painting
Mix the paint well - Otherwise it spatters paint when it sprays
Did we say, keep the gun clean.
In the next part, we set about polishing the headlights .
