Re: Plasti dip wheels

Unfortunately I've got the base 17" wheels. Still beats silver on a green car.

The mca wheels are the pony package wheels just painted, so I decided to paint the wheels with them still on, just had to cover the brakes behind the wheel. I planed to then take the dip off the lugs, but my friends convinced me to keep them black.

Thanks, I'm not going to lie, it was a pain in the *** to get all the corners and spots on these wheels! A couple of lighter spots but u can't tell much. I might go over it a bit later.

Post some pictures of your car in an album on your profile, and be sure to make a post when you do your wheels so I can see!

Re: Plasti dip wheels

Yeah...painting mine was fun...did them one at a time off of the car.....changing from Grey with bright accents to what I have now, really changed the whole look of the car to something meaner....
I used VHT wheel paint.....hadnt found the joys of plasti dip until afterwards....if they chip up or if I have to redo them for some reason...it will be the plasti

Is the plasti-dip difficult to install? Is it more of an adhesive?

Re: Plasti dip wheels

What is this "paint" and "brakes" you speak of? Does not compute!

Re: Plasti dip wheels

Should charge the Grabber Green guy double. Painting sexy colors takes extra effort.

Very easy. Look up any video on YouTube. 4 coats and you can take it off when ever you want leaving your wheels like new
