Street Dreamz​ Customs and 301 Dipz Fails Vinyl Wrapping Test

IMG_5256Never again! We have been using Street Dreamz​ Customs in Maryland for a few years now to apply vinyl wrapping of a few cars that we paint every year for the Washington Auto Show. But this year they switched to plasti dipped using a vendor dubbed 301 Dipz​. It was the worse experience we have encountered with a custom shop in 25-years of automotive operations. The spray job was horrible and kept peeling off so the artists had to over tape which made the presentation even worse. But when it was time to remove the chemicals 301 Dipz and Street Dreamz returned our cars half complete with two of them suffering paint damage by way of scratches and chipping. The overspray was everywhere, and in places it shouldn’t have been. My team personally had to remove using 6 bottles of Turtle wax Bug and Tar spray. It took a few hours per vehicle and then we had to pay to have them professionally detailed.

To top it off, the owner of Street Dreamz, Ryan Mann, left us outside in the cold for an hour as we were waiting to show him the level of unprofessionalism exerted on our vehicles from his vendor Rey of 301 Dipz. He claimed that he was too upset over his vendor to speak with us. This is a sign of total disrespect to someone paying you thousands of dollars. Moreover, he didn’t even call or text to apologize for the debacle. And it’s obvious that Ryan never checked Rey’s work or he wouldn’t have allowed the cars to leave the shop half done. We now have to take out an insurance claim to have the scratches and chips repaired on one of the cars. Just horrible!
