Plasti dip my steering wheel

I got excited I didn't take a before pic of my 98 mustang gt but take my word it was rough the color before was a tannish brownish color and pretty much losing it color so I plasti dip it matte black and also the middle area where you honk the horn which was original black and I tape off the buttons for the cruise cause I didn't want to peel that area off but I put about 4 coat and just got done with the last coat

I just don't get how when you're grabbing and turning the wheel the plasti dip won't come off...

Plasti dip is actually designed to be used to spray on tools to give you a better grip on them when they get oily.

I'm going to have take a pic of the inside of my mustang so you can see why I did this but it will have to wait until the weekend because when I go and when I leave work it's always dark so I have to wait until Sat when I'm off work

Like they say about plasti dip it come off when your ready which mean the longer you have it on something the harder it is to come off so when you want it to come off you have to sit there are pick at it and when you get a good peal it will come right off but it takes some work to get it started

Great Idea, I had a bad steering wheel once upon a time, that would have been a great fix, even if it peels off, your just back to square one.

I like your scheme, but think you can improve on the door speakers and changing the tan carpet on the doors. The tan arm rest would look better in original color though. With the current background on the door by the switches, you could now use brushed metal buttons. The for handle would look more neat if just the handle were black or both were same color.

I understand what your saying but explain a little more

How can I improve on the door speakers
How can I change the color of the carpet on the doors
What's brushed metal buttons? I never heard of that
And when you say handle do you mean the door handle?
