Plasti Dip Wheels and painted calipers

Had a couple of days off from work and I decided to plasti Dip my stock wheels today and painted my Calipers also added Drilled slotted Rotors and power stop break pads. Saving up for some FR500 wheels so i tought changing up my stock wheels would hold me up while i save some money for the wheel and tire upgrade.

Nice job on the wheels, I'd suggest putting some clear coat to it, the shine will have everyone looking twice lol Click image for larger version

Just did mine this weekend! I used the Rust-Oleum flexidip gloss over the plastidip. I recommend NOT using the flexidip matte black pain unless you plan on just having matte black as it will not gloss near as much as platidip will with a gloss over it.

The calipers were the G2 lime green caliper paint. doing a S550 you will need 2 cans of the G2 to cover all 4 because the front caliper is like 3x the surface area as the rear caliper is.

This is what I use and I put it everywhere and I mean everywhere, my rims, my spoiler, my grille delete, my chin spoiler and a little on my radiator cover. This thing shines for days, and at random points during a week I'll touch up all those areas 'just cause' lol Click image for larger version

How long does spray painting your rims last before it starts to fade/tear - 6 months to a year? I used G2 to paint my calipers red and it has fantastic coverage and glossy look.

No I didn't, if you get over spray you won't even notice it so don't worry about it just do light even coats

Ok my calipers are painted red at the moment but they are chipping. I want them painted grabber blue. Should I have them taken off and cleaned then painted?
