Here's a quick glimpse of what it takes to make our hydro dipped custom PlayStation 5 plates really pop! When we say the finished product looks like a car paint job, we aren't lying. Heck, we even use tools that are used by high-level automotive detailers to polish our PS5 plates. 

The final polish, as seen in the video below, is the last step in a labored process that begins with sanding. Sanding down the PS5 plates ensures that the surface of the item is properly prepped to achieve a perfect transfer of graphics once it's dipped into the water.

But once the dip is complete, there's still more work to be done. Several layers of clear coat are applied, and we have to leave each layer to dry before applying the next, which times some time. Afterwards, the final polish awaits - which is still a multi-step process, as we use different levels of cut pads to remove any imperfections that may be left over. Finally, we use a pad specifically meant for polishing as the final step, which really makes it look like glass!
