    Darknight Summit

    I had a extra can of plasti dip aerosol can laying around and decided to paint my summit body and wheels. Its not a professional paint job but i think it came out great. Feedback or questions post up. I still dont know if i should add the cage to it, i like the way it looks without it.

    Awesome man, Looks great with the cage. All it needs is green LED's for the lights.

    Good thing I have a visual, that beast is not showing up on radar

    Very stealthy indeed and a good job on the wheels too

    Nice job on the wheels! Looks similar to a lot of 1:1 wheels on the market. The cage will help preserve the plastidip in a rollover but it looks good with or without IMO.

    Flat black is my favorite color as well, so I am a little biased.

    Thanks, my original paint scheme in mind was complete black out but after cleaning them i came with that pattern. I will install the cage just in case, my next paint scheme will be to plasti dip it white so it will give it a off white look.

    Love it, looks meaner with the cage though in my opinion.

    At the very least it needs the fenders... But I really like how it looks with no cage. Wont likely last long though. Youd be surprised how much the cage protects the body.

    Well with motor on the way, it gives me time to add the cage until it arrives. I found my white plasti dip can today so i might spray the cage white see how it looks. Or maybe just the doors and give it the highway patrol look lol, thanks for the comments guys.
