Stuff is actually amazing im surprised how easy it was and how good they came out. Had alot of curb rash on my rims cuz I got them from a junkyard and it hides all of it

I did it with just one can. But if ur leaving your tires on your car put paper towels behind rims to cover brake calibers and stuff. And take ur time cuz it will drip down if u just spray bomb it. And back ur car up then to spin rims to get any missed spots

They'll start getting a little raggy around the edges depending on whether or not you're going thru car washes, or bad weather after a few months but it's easy enough to touch up- just re mask it, put playing cards along the rim edge and do a touch up spray.

Agreed, but people do it. I personally avoid them. I like those places that have the drive in bays where you can do your own handwash... Anyway, I'm just sayin.... They are going to spray their rims and then go thru that dang carwash and wonder why it looks bad.

How'd you get that lip so perfect!?!?

I was asking the guy right below you who had done his, but left a really neat lip how he managed to do that.
I've tried to mask off a lip like that but could not pull it off.

Just use short pieces of tape and do a gradual curve with it.

Re: 98 v6 plasti dip rims

just as an update to the ongoing plastidip action..there is a site i found from some of my maxima friends at my6thgen.com...check out dipyourcar.com, they now have glossifiers for the plastidip and ways to add metallic looks with it, very cool stuff indeed! I ended up peeling mine off of my mustang, but may redo it now that i see this new technology with this very inexpensive project!
