Plastidipped my wheels and grills

Finally got around to doing this. Super excited with the results!! We'll just see how well it holds up to the gravel.

Pretty good. Car in sig is AutoX'ing with Plasti Dip and it was about 100 degrees outside. If it gets on the tires it is a PITA to get off though.

Yes yes it is I figured since its a coating it will eventually dry up and flake off

Just an update 1 month later and the wheels look good no chips or anything, really the only problem is that dust sticks to em REAL good but mild soap and some scrubbing and they're as good as new! SOO glad I did this well worth the time!
