    It came out really nice and the print is awesome.

    Not bad! But as some constructive criticism, That stock in the second pic would need redone. Has some bad hesitation lines (the lines that go vertical as pictured up around the grip). As the name implies, They're caused by hesitating as you dipped, causing start/stop marks. It's pretty common.

    Holy hesitation lines Batman...better start working on your technique...

    I dipped it by rolling from one side to the other. Was that right? Thanks for the constructive criticism also.

    Yes, rolling is a great way to dip. You just need to be more smooth and fluid while doing it to avoid the lines.

    What should I charge to do a golf cart? I don't want to charge my self out of a job. But I want to make some cash also. Thanks

    Looks good besides the hesitation lines. But the hesitation lines are very noticeable. Be smoother and got a great hit

    @HomeTownHydro That is easy to do. I just replied to your PM, but I'll post the response here Lao for benefit of the forum. He asked what I charged for the Pink Camo golf cart I did a while back... and if $450 would do it. This was my response:

    "Not even touching it. I actually did that as a favor. The guy is a family friend that built and programmed the control box for my automated systems. If I had to do it again? A simple camo and Matte clear job, with no strips or accents, would be around $1500. That gloss Pink Camo job you see in the post/pics would have been $3000+ easy. Lots of steps to make that happen. As a comparison for you, call a local custom paint shop and tell them you have a golf cart body and want the dings repaired, then painted and show-quality Gloss clear and see what they quote you. Then realize that in addition to a paint job, there are 6 separate dips on that thing, with added masking and paint for the racing stripes and masking for the other charcoal color areas."

    And obviously I could still be low considering Jim's last post.

    Man, golf carts are NOT easy. I am going to offer a little more constructive criticism... Get a few more dips under your belt before you take that project on.
