    We finally got ourselves some project cars, Nissan 350Zs to be exact … well two of them. A few months ago we filmed a brand new show called HiLow! The objective was to build one 350Z with cheap parts and the other 350Z with top-of-the-line expensive parts. The journey was probably the most fun we’ve had at Donut, and the final results were very interesting. HiLow drops tomorrow on YouTube, but in the meantime, we're giving you a sneak peek and going Bumper 2 Bumper on our very own Nissan 350Zs!

    We have a Podcast!

The plastidip is combustible, "during spraying (edited in)", and isn't meant for a battery power spary gun. One wrong spark and he could have set low car on fire or be in a burnward himself. Plus it plastidip didn't hold well from washing the same day as he sprayed the car. That and having done it outside in an uncontrolled environment didn't help either.
