^ Yeah, home depot has it but if I'm not mistaken it may be only some home depots. My local home depot was out of stock the last time I checked.

wherever u get it, be sure to pick up a can of glossifier. Makes the finish a lot better than the brake dust texture of the plastistuff.

Yeah I'm getting the glossifier for sure as I'm looking for a glossy finish. I really want shadow trims so the best way to go is with plastidip since I don't damage my current brushed aluminum trims..
btw there is a way to paint the plastidip without getting that horrible texture, its painting at the correct distance from the body, but its risky since too close = it will leak and too far = would cause that texture.

yup.
1. Remove the entire wheel, clean and prep/paint both the inside and outside.
2. Use one of those $5 nozzle attachments that allows u to spray in sheets.
3. Don't use the can when it runs low - it starts spewing out larger blobs that mess up the finish.
4. Clean the nozzle in between coats.
5. Wait at least 10 minutes before spraying your next coat.
6. The more ventilation you have, the better.

Thanks for the valuable tips, I bet the finish would be excelent if I follow those.
