You can get it at local hardware stores or like fleet farm and menards... or check out www.dipyourcar.com they have it in a bunch of colors now.

Stuff is nice, i sprayed the hub caps on my xB with it. Comes out really nice and its pretty hard to screw up.

The thicker the coat the easier it is to peel off. My friend did his civic hood and door today took 10 minutes to get it all clean no problems.

I did a whole dsm last fall. Parts of it came out good. Other parts where I got it to thin just looked like shit. Also, donít do it if your car ever sees any dirt roads. Shit never comes out.
