Re: thermochromic paint job???

i dont think you are gonna find any people with that kinda paint on here..

but i hear those types of paint are really hard to touch-up/ re paint if you ever get in an accident or something.

and i believe they are really expensive..

Re: thermochromic paint job???

Before you consider painting your car with this, please be aware of how expensive it is to simply buy this paint. Consider that it takes 8-16 pints (1-2 gallons) of paint to paint a car. Then consider that some of this paint can cost around $400 a pint. Now consider the fact that you would be likely paying someone to prep and paint the car. Congratulations!!! Your paint job is more expensive than your car and if ANYTHING happens to ANY part of the paint, it is irreparable without doing the whole car again.

Re: thermochromic paint job???

Don't listen to those buzzkills. I say do it!

How cool would it be to roll up to a red light, jump out with your heat gun, and make your Tib change colors? That will blow the clothes right off the women!

Re: thermochromic paint job???

if you did start the car/drive it wouldnt the hood be one color and the rest be a different one? I think it'd look odd

Re: thermochromic paint job???

You'd actually have to paint it a sh*tload of different colors... then after you drive it for a while, it would all be the same color.

QFT, but I was hoping that some of our seasoned members could chime in here.

I was in high school when your car was made.

Re: thermochromic paint job???

Alright you two, don't make me shake my cane at you! I was driving before the Tib or either of you were born! Heck, possibly before Hyundai was even in this country...

For the record, Keith - I used to have Hypercolor shirts. Don't recall the hoodies as pictured tho

you dont have to paint the whole car just paint a hot girl on your hood with her clothes on and when your hood heats up she could have here clothes come off and be fully nude. i have seen a harley painted like this and it was pretty sick.
