Any body try hydrographing??

I just tripped across this stuff today, it looks pretty cool I have never seen anything like this before. It seems like it would hold up pretty good too, the guy in the video does his gun stock with it I would think it would have to be durable... Just wondering if anyone has tried this before and what your guys thoughts are on it? It's a little on the pricey side but I was thinking it might be pretty cool to do some of my interior pannels with it...

I haven't seen any do it yourself kits before so that's pretty cool but I had a good friend that ran a hydrographics shop doing production type work. It was a really neat process and held up as good if not better than normal paint, not as durable as powdercoat though. His shop did some really cool interior pieces for a local NBA'ers car that turned out b##chin. He did say that the part had to be dipped at a very steady rate, proper angle etc. or the ink wouldn't transfer right, he said it took a while to get the process perfected. That being said...keep us posted on the DIY setup, I wouldn't mind giving it a try.

I've seen a lot of Rock Buggies have been running dipped panels recently. They look amazing, and it's way cheaper than some fancy paint job...
