New look

I plastic dipped my emblems and wheels black. What's some opinions on what look looks better.

Here's some better pics. I think it looks good either way. It matches with the paint the old way and with black it matches all the black on my car.

I think they both look good! But if have to choose, I think without the plasti dip mainly cause the anthracite FR's match up good with your paint color.

Thanks for the opinions everyone. I like both a lot I been wanting to see what it would look like on black rims and if I didn't like it I could always peel it off.
Old way matches with my paint but kinda looks like a stock look.
The new way it matches my mirrors Mach 1 grill delete and chin spoiler and head and tail lights.
I think I'll leave it black awhile them maybe switch back later.

Re: New look

Awesome! I think before plasti dip it looks stock, after it looks mean!

Get some dark smoke headlights with the clear lens and it'd complete the look

Thanks a lot!
I was getting it looked stock a lot and it's far for
Stock I was tired of people saying that after all the time and money I spent to make it look not stock. I wanted to try a different look to make it not look so stock.
I can always peel it off if I get tired of this look.
Thanks for the opinions guys.

I left them on. I watched a couple videos about it you don't even need to tape up the tire the over spray that gets on the tire it peels right off. It took maybe 3 seconds to get the over spray off.

It's really simple! I heard it was real simple and I kept saying there is no way it's the easy and it damn sure was.
I think to chrome looks really good to tell you the truth. Its hard to tell until you really do it.
It just depends on what look you want I did my emblems also, so I have zero chrome now.
If you was to do it my opinion I would say do your emblems and whatever else is chrome maybe get black. But again I think your car looks amazing black on chrome.

That's also my plan I didn't want to spend the money to get it done and I not like it. And I wanted to see what it would look like all black without the chrome lip. I think I'm going to get mine powder coated flat black.

Re: New look

Plastidip looks cheap. The first shot looks way better.
