The DeLorean DMC-12 is best known as the time-traveling car in the Back to the Future movies. While the real DeLorean could eventually hit 88mph, it didn’t exactly do it quickly with its 130 hp V6.

(PG-13: Language) Hydro-dipping is the process of adhering a film to the surface of an object by floating it in a bath of water and adding an activation agent. We’ve seen it done to shoes, guitars, and helmets, but the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 tried to dip an entire car. Unfortunately, even the best-laid plans can go very wrong.
