Re: Wheels Done!

They look good. I like the stripes, I like how you did the stripes over the roof and trunk for the spears...

Re: Wheels Done!

The other day I was on google searching cars with plasti-dip on the wheels and I found a nissan forum where those guys used plastip as a base coat. Then they painted over it with rustoleum or some other type a paint just so they could have a different color, and still was able to peel it off if they wanted to. I say that because if someone didn't want to flat black their wheels they could go over them with a can of gloss, then clear coat.

Re: Wheels Done!

I did this to my stock 19" wheels about 3 months ago and looks like I just did it yesterday! I get many compliments on my wheels. 2 cans are needed and will still be some left over $12 for 2 cans.

This has to be one of the simplest mods anyone can do themselves.

Prep:

*Remove wheel from car
*wash with soap and water
*dry wheels
*can either use blue painters tape on the tire, or deck of cards around the rim of the wheel, or spray them with no protection.
*pop out the center cap
*Each wheel 3 coats of plasti-dip letting dry between coats.
* pop on center cap
*re-install wheels
*Smile

Here is mine:

I had no idea there was a thread on this that's so recent. Now I feel like a copy-cat because I just finished my wheels. Lol.

Oh, and I prepped a tad different. Don't forget to tape the lug holes and the center cap hole so everything has clean seats. And I used paper because I was spraying indoors around carpet. Lol. It was raining outside.

Re: Wheels Done!

...I painted the badges too. I painted them on the car just taped them off. I used bumper paint on them though.
...I like the smurf, the smurf s stays.!!!!!! lol
...I took a few more pictures some close up. the really close up picture is where I rubbed some of the paint off with a tire iron putting the wheels on, I put them on right after the last coat of paint and I should have waited and let the paint completely dry.
.. It was very easy to do. I took all the wheels off (i suppose you could do 1 at a time, it would just take longer). I cleaned them up with windex, then stuck playing cards in the gap between the tires and the rim on the front side on all 4 tires, I didn't worry about the back/insides of the rims, I just didn't paint all the way to the edge. I put just a few then coats on the inside. I would start on one go from rim to rim, when I got back to the rim I started on it was dry. It's kinda cold here so I used my wifes hair dryer to heat them up a little and get them to dry quicker. After the insides were done I did the front. It goes on pretty dry so if you just keep the can moving it won't run. I'd spray a tire, blow dry for a few min then go to the next rim. All pretty easy!!

I set down a base line of tape around the lip with about an 1/8th inch space between the lip and the center of the rim for reasons I'll explain in a sec. Then I took the paper and used that tape to put over the base like of tape I already had. Using the two lines of tape I was certain to keep it straight and to prevent holes for spray through.

When I was ready to tape the prep work off the rim after it was dry, I took a straight razor and ran it in the tiny gap between the lip and the center. This separates the pieces and allows you to pull off the tape without a chance of pulling off or tearing the fresh coats you just put on.

Remember to take your time on every step. It's better to take your time and do it right the first time then to have to do it over again.

Re: Wheels Done!

I see on Summits site there is a "clear". Can you put down the matt black then cover with the clear for a more shiny end product? (my son has some older chrome Cobra wheels that have a few pitted spots, thinking maybe we can give him a new looks and get a couple more years out of the wheels)

Yeah, from what I understand you can do that. Although the flat black looks killer.

2 should be more than enough. I have 19" wheels and many angles with these wheels, I did 3 coats each wheel and still had aproximately 1/2 a can left over.
