Plasti dipped my wheels and trim,

Hi guys,

I first plasti dipped the whole rim but I didn't like it so I peeled off just the lip. Gunmetal, 5 coats, 2 cans for all wheels, had glossifier but didn't use it. What do you think guys, Plasti dip or the way it was?

Oh I also did the DEPO blacklines today, a little bit worried about they might be too dark but I think it came up good
