So it seems like dealers should only stock black vehicles and install a plasti-dip dept. LOL Dealer A can give me a custom design paint job for my new truck, what can this dealership do?

Here are a bunch. Not all are full vehicle dips, some just wheels and other stuff.
Wheels, tail light cages and step bars.

Full vehicle in a custom color.

Ninja and helmet I did.

Metallic gold wheels.

Light blue with black wheels and roof.

Mind if I pick your brain on some of the technique? I'm about to start my own dip. I assume you're using a paint gun, and was curious how much you thin the dip and what size nozzle you use on the gun for spraying it -- if you've tried different thicknesses and what the results are?
Also, how did you get that tribal ram's head on the truck in the first post? I had heard that plasti dip is difficult to do with stencils, as the stencil has a habit of peeling off the plasti dip with it. I would like to put the same ram's head on the hood of my D-150.

I am an authorized installer with DipYourCar.com so I buy all my stuff through them. They have a pre-thinned dip called Ready Dip Spray, best stuff there is. I use an Earlex 3500 sprayer with the standard tip. I think its a 1.5 or 1.8 not quite sure, I just used the tip that came with the gun. As far as gun settings, I always have it set at around 2 clicks below 50% and use the same technique as I do with rattle cans. First 2 coats are light dusting to get a good base for the dip to adhere to. Then 4-6 heavy coats that create a uniform "wet" surface. Almost to the point of running but just short of it.

As far as the ram head stencil, I pulled it off the internet and printed it out the size I wanted. I traced it on some frisket film and layed it on the dipped surface I wanted to keep the color of. I them sprayed the white with pearl over it, around 2 coats. While the dip is still wet you carefully pull the frisket film off and the finished product is what you see. As long as you put 6+ coats of dip on, you can use painters tape on it and it shouldnt peel the dip off. I do it all the time for stripes and whatnot and have never had the tape peel any dip off.

s that the gunmetal color from dipyourcar.com? I was curious how close the new darker grey compares to the factory mineral grey.

Great job on the truck. Looks awesome.
