Hi guys, Happy New Year!!! I was looking to change the look of my 2003 Maserati Coupe GT. I asked on the forum what others have done but didn’t get much of a response. Soooo, I decided to make my own. I posted a two part video on YouTube if you’re interested in checking it out.
thanks

Hi Marcorati,

Nicely done. You had mentioned “plasti-dip”, can the plasti-dip be done in a gloss black?

Kindly,
Stephen

That looks pretty nice. I’ve never messed with a 3D printer but I find myself thinking it would come in handy for so many things automotive related

Yes and no. You will need to spray black pastidip which will be matte black. Then you will need to get a can of "glossifier". It's basically Plastidip's version of clear coat. However, it will never be super glossy, instead will will be more like a semi-gloss. However, you can use "armor all" on it to give it a little extra shine. Make sure you give it plenty of coats so it is easy to remove if you ever change your mind. Good Luck!

Awesome stuff. Are you willing to share the STLs?
Thanks Tulit. So, I really had to put a lot of extra effort into making the fit right by adding filler, sanding, shaping... step and repeat. I don't think the files are at the level to share because of that.

Marcorati, where do you get the Permabond QFS16? I tried finding it online but it seems it's not really available to the public and when I found it it seems kind of pricey. I have using baking soda for an accelerator for super glue for years, but this Permabond looks like a much better option.

McMaster-Carr caries several accelerators. They are not cheap, but a small amount goes a long way. Here is the link: McMaster-Carr
