Matching coatings to existing parts

Back to listing

Wanting to hydro dip interior parts for his Smart Brabus forfour, David first tried a local company who let him down before turning to Wicked Coatings for help.

“The OEM finish on door grab handles was badly chipped in places and I knew hydro dipping would ‘refresh’ them. I opted to have some of the other similarly coloured interior parts dipped to match. As the car is quite ‘sporty’ I felt a carbon look would suit the car well,” explained David.

He had previously used Wicked Coatings to hydro dip some engine parts (value covers) and strut brace in a Nissan 350Z, but this time David decided to try a local company.

“For this most recent hydro dipping work I initially used a local company, believing a) they might be quicker for turnaround (they weren’t) and b) they could dip to match an existing finish in the car; they said yes but, when I viewed the parts after dipping, the finish was not even close to matching the finish I wanted. They only then said they could not guarantee to match anything existing – something they promised they could at the outset. I then realised my mistake and reverted to Wicked Coatings!

“Their service was first class. From initial enquiry to receiving the finished items, communication and information was timely and accurate.

“The finish is superb. Cannot be faulted. I would recommend Wicked Coatings without hesitation. I have since used their name on two of the forums I use (for different cars) as highly recommended. I won’t ever make the mistake of going elsewhere again!” added David.
