Default Look What I Did Today...

Decided to plastidip the chrome wheels!! Not as easy as I thought it would be. It is definitely easier to just paint the whole wheel and not tape off parts. Also if anyone else should try this, MAKE SURE THE WHOLE WHEEL IS CLEAN!!!

I taped off the lip and when it came time to pull of the tape, the plastidip started to peel up with the tape in sections that weren't clean enough. Like in the corners.

All in all I'm happy how they look! What cha think!?

Exactly. I ended up using a razor to cut it. But just enough not to scratch the wheel.

Plasti dip is great stuff until you use it with tape.

The shit will peel off a paper towel when it dries.

I learned the same lesson when I did my Donz, ended up pulling it off and leaving the rivets black.

It's tough when you have to put 3 or 4 coats on. I found the best is to just paint it all then peel.
