Just plastidipped my brembo rims. I know black on black is overdone in the mustang world but I wanted to test it before I make em monster green. What do you guys think?

Looks great. And who cares if black on black, it over done?? It looks awesome lol. As long as someone else in your neighborhood isnt driving a blacked out mustang you're good!

Thanks guys ya it was my first attempt. If I were to redo it I'd make sure to let em dry more in between coats and I'd do lighter coats. There's a couple small runs that aren't noticeable but I know they're there.

Give it a week or two the runs disappear. At least they did on my stock rims. I thought they all looked bad and I was going to have to redo them. They all cleared up.

I don't quite understand the plasti dipping. How durable can that be? Doesn't it look a bit cheesy up close? I've used that stuff for other applications and its pretty neat stuff, but I don't think I could bring myself to spray it on a premium wheel! Looks awesome though in the pics.

I like it cause my taste changes like women and their shoes. After I get bored with one setup I can just peel it off and do something else. Plus I couldn't see myself spending all kinds of money to have rims painted when I know my car is definitely no show car. I drive the hell outta her and the rims would be nicked and scratched within a week

I just popped the caps out. It's actually really easy. I didn't tape anything at all, I just laid some trash bags under the tire so I don't get plastidip on my porch

Here is a tip for future plasti dippers. But playing card around rim, to avoid getting any on tires.
