    No worries, the opposite land, big enough to make a garage as big as a warehouse. Something like this then we can do plastidip :biggrin:

    Seriously, when is ACE going to bring in the Gallons. I foresee we guys are gonna have a chance to get the gallons plastidip and start our car painting DIY with a spray gun. Buying it in cans is so costly and is not as easy as using a spray gun man.

    BTW check this out.

    So roughly how many gallons do you need to spray the whole car? Say a sedan the size of Civic/Altis?
    Kelisa would be roughly 1 gallon since after mixing with thinner will have 2 gallons amount I think.

    Spray gun what brand do u use bro?

    3-4 Gallons would be like RM2K already. But since have to mix with thinner, for mid size car I think I only need 2 Gallons and once mix with 1:1 with thinner, I have 4 gallons :biggrin:

    hi..yes u r totally right! lots of ppl confused :)

    the chart shows you the amount of prethinned plastidip (ready to spray or already mixed 1:1 with thinner)

    so the calculation as below:

    1 gallon = 3.78 liter
    1 gallon gun metal grey : RM 500
    Thinner : RM 150 (5 Liter)

    After mixed both plastidip and thinner 1:1 ratio, you'll get 2 gallons of sprayable gunmetal grey <- RM 500 + RM 150 = RM 650

    so the cost to diy spray kelisa or any car that falls in sub-compact category will be RM 650!!!

    and for your civic or sedan car, your cost will be RM 650 x 2 = RM 1300 (you will have extra 1 sprayable gallon if you use only 3 sprayable gallons on your car)

    FYI, ready to spray plastidip cost only RM 86/liter!

    2 gallons spraybale plastidip : RM 650 (1 gallon plastidip + thinner) divided by 7.56 liter = RM 86/liter

    hope those numbers help! :biggrin:

    U mean RM86 per litre is those without the need to add thinner? But then only get 1 gallon. If mix with thinner RM650 I can get 2 gallons :biggrin:

    By the way, what thinner is it? Xylene?

    The rm86 is just a number to compare by liter :) plastidip will be sold in gallons only for the time being.

    The thinner is in house special mix but u can purchase xylene at any hardware shop if you like.
