Solid Colors Rule!

Like Oscar said, plasti-dip isn't a gloss finish this will be a satin and is pretty forgiving.

x2, all of this dip your car stuff (and metallic paints for that matter) strike me as a waste of $$ and overall lame, but to each his own. Trident is a great color, new and aged.

Clay: You're almost there with my thinking. But I'd go with a much darker shade of green. Classic Land Rover Green in the tint of your choice. After all there are many variations!

If I were you, I'd go for the graphite.
Eh...the rust tint will organically evolve...

I think many of you are missing the point of the plastidip products.

It gives someone the ability to play around with diffrent colors and change them when they want without doing damage to the paint underneath or having the permanance of a true paint job / color change.

Sick of the color just peel it off and put a new color on.

Decide to sell it and want to put it back to the original color just peel it off.

I've tried to like Trident green but it just isn't the color for me.

Exactly Dave, you hit the nail on the head. Plus it will protect the paint already there (not that really matters for my 110)

This is the color of my next Rover:

You could go with a permanent color for not much more work than the stuff you are looking at. This 2 part paint goes on super easy and as I learned this past week while doing some major offloading it is virtually indestructible. I think your 110 would look fabulous in this color.

Adam to be honest not really. Mask the windows, pull the lights, put garbage bags over the tires and wipe the body with thinner. You spray it with a sprayer you use for the house. No booth time, no real skill needed its pretty forgiving. If you damage it you peel the panel and respray or use thinner to re-melt it for a repair.

I've done the MGB 3 times its average cost is less than half what I estimated for the 110.

Oh and by the time you put it back together its ready to drive (about 4 hours)

Curious if you considered wrapping... lots of articles and opinions comparing wrap vs dip. Lots of negative reviews on dipping.
