Lowe's, Menards, Home Depot. Super super easy and a get alternative to buying black wheels. $6 a can so you can't go wrong with it. Just make sure you do nice even coats throughout your wheels cause I noticed that I missed spots but was an easy fix and the simplest way to clean it is Windex. I did it this week and its super durable and looks great!

No dumb questions. You won't know unless you ask or try. All good.

You can buy a can you can physically dip stuff in or you can by a spray can and apply it like you would rattle can paint.

No prep needed other than cleaning the part with some alcohol pads.

Don't spray on anything cloth like. Just hards, like chrome and paint. Its a spray on plasticy-rubber substance.

You can but I wouldn't suggest it cause its just extra work. It comes in a spray can and its like rubber in a can. It comes out like in a line and just go around you wheel putting nice even coats. Super easy man. I was just like you at first not really understanding too much about it then I did it and its a lot easier than you think. And thanks man!! I'm loving the murdered out look!

The red and black part yes but throwing the tan in there might be a little out there. Just my opinion lol. I'm not a fan of tan anything lol.

Ripping the interior out of a mustang is one of the easiest things I ever did without looking up how to do it..

Just go slowly and make sure you pop all the pieces out properly, because the pins that hold them in can break easily. I am sure you can find a write up or a video somewhere to show exactly how it comes out.

At lowes its with the hand tools. Tell them your looking for a rubberized spray on coating. Its usually with the wrenches and what not. About 6 bucks a can.

They sell out real quick on the plasti dip. I got mine at Lowes and they only had two cans left that I bought. They do have places you can buy it online if you do a search. The plasti dip also comes in different colors.

Also, if you wanna tint your tail lights. I used the VHT nite shades I bought at Auto Zone for $8 in a spray can. If you check out my pics you can see it.

Good luck
