80% Plasti Dip Removed!

So I had went a little Plasti Dip crazy a few months back and dipped my wheels, GT emblems, fuel door, hood, and blinkers. I was looking at some of my old picture and thought I really missed those beautiful stock chrome wheels. So I decided to go ahead and remove the Plasti Dip from the wheels and GT emblems and I think it looks MUCH better. What do you think?

Two different styles. I like a mixture both.

Like on mine i got the all lights tinted and chrome wheels/emblems. Its a little different, not to much dark look and not to much flashy chrome

I think either look good though

I hate chrome, that said if plasti dip isn't your thing there are other options, just not reversible

Take off wheels, clean them, dip them, reinstall, about a good 1-2 hours

How about heat and plastidip? Any effect 90 degree weather could have on it and it's effect on the actual rims?

I Iived in Louisiana. It saw soaking rains, crazy hot summers, cold winters, and the occasional hurricane.

Worked great. And kept the rims clean under the plasti dip!

It's rated up to 200 degrees. I know some people who have dipped their exhaust tips with no problems.

Nope NONE. One day I was washing my car and was getting too close with the pressure washer and messed up one wheel. I re dipped it and that was it

But a regular hose wont cause any issues with it coming off?

Do you wash the wheels with the plasti dip on it? Or just rinse them? I scrub my wheels when I clean them now. I have the same stock chrome wheels as OP.

I like the chrome wheels to be honest. Never have been a big fan of solid black wheels without some sort of chrome lip or something to offset it a little. Plus your blue with chrome wheels is a sweet combo. I still do have my emblems dipped but my car is also black so it is less drastic I guess lol.

Oh no a hose won't do anything I still used a pressure washer every time. I would wash them but you don't need to dry them after they are dipped. They never water spot or anything. That was the plus

Get some index cards and put them between your wheel and tire all the way around. Helps with the clean up process.

Don't really need to put cards. If you spray on the tire it will peel off super easy

Like I said just helps with the process. You can put them on and when you're all done you're done. Or you don't have to them on and you have to spend the time peeling all that **** off.
