Anyone got the old plastidip on their c3? Surely some peeps are digging it!? Just ordered blaze yellow 3x cans and 1 400ml can of white as a primer from Denmark (preys for no custom & handling fees). Top of the Wing mirrors, citroenc3 badge bk and front and some 5 spoke trims I got on eBay for dirt. My car pictured.

If you got it, show it, simple...

I do remember the stuff, but not seen it on wheels before. The Plasti Dips UK approved eBay store is here. But hopefully the package will slip through customs untouched and uncharged :)


Its going to be good to see the finished jobs.

I emailed the online shop and they're sending it marked as "gift" :-) bangtidy. Hopefully that will get past pricey fees. I've been looking at plastidip and projects for months, no English stores have stock of the new BLAZE colours. I messaged a few sellers and one said all sold out except the Blue around EU and they wouldn't ship over seas due to it being a spray can and apparently there is legislation for that kind of sheez. The orange is most popular apparently. Hard scouting paid off my friend. Think I'm going to do the top of the Wing mirrors like in photo of yellow c3. A couple of videos of blaze plastidip wheels:

That's probably the best way to get customs interested in your package and as far as duty/VAT is concerned it makes no difference whatsoever. Import duty is based on the value of the good, regardless of whether they are a present, commercial or whatever. I think the current value below which you escape duty is £25 (please check this with HMRC).
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:
