Hydro Dipping

Anyone do this?


I am thinking of the interior trim pieces for my Camry. Looks like a cool way to get something like a carbon fiber look without the hassle of applying the film and stretching it. Have watched a bunch of videos on how to do this. Am thinking of it...

Personally, never been fond of carbon fiber unless it is actual carbon fiber. Otherwise it seems interesting, just no clue how to do it and how durable it is.

Since you cover it with clear coat, and my application would be inside the cabin, seems like it could be fairly durable. Lots of interesting patterns, but a pretty big drift to skulls and related.

I first I thought it was a joke, but it's the real deal. Really interesting with virtually unlimited possiblities as far as designs go.
