My question would be, could I just black it all out then tape and do the purple? And not worry about a base coat?

Looks great man! I am wanting to get my car dipped in the future as it has some body damage (chips all over the place). However I don't think I will be attempting this job myself as I have no sprayer.

Been trying to source shops that will do this

If you order the dipyourcar kit, it comes with the dip and the sprayer, as well as a few other small things to help you along the way. About $4-500 depending on the kit you get, and then you'll have the sprayer for future jobs

I have seen an even cheaper kit and similar like product from eastwood called Elasti-wrap!! Never seen or heard of it until a few months ago when I got a new eastwood catalog.

Eastwood ElastiWrap™ Gal Kit w/Turbine Gun

Guessing it would cost about that at a shop though.

Plus many jobs I have seen done end up with streaking

Get some quotes from a shop. I haven't done so, but I imagine they'recharging at least $600. Its a lot of product and a good deal of labor involved. But youre right in thinking that a shop will be able to get a good result on the first go around. And if you aren't happy with how it comes out, its up to the shop to fix it
