Plastidipped wheels and grilles!

Just wanted to give a shout out to " preezzy" he went to dipyourcar.com for me, got supplies and drove all the way down from West Palm to Fort Lauderdale to dip my wheels and grills. He took his time and really did an amazing job. I am very happy with the results.

Here are some pics the car is filthy it just rained, just snapped a few quick ones.

Wheels look great! Been considering that too. Did he take any extra steps other than just clean and spray it on?
Tip-Plastidipped my rims on old car and they looked great when I put some tire shine on every time I washed it, a more glossy look. Got a bit expensive, but considering the dip itself was like $15 I don't feel bad buying a new can every week or two.

No extra steps, just a through clean, took his time. Made sure everything was perfect. How well did yours hold up? Can you use a high pressure hose when washing your car and wheels?

Nice, I thought about gunmetal gray. However, it looks like primer. Reconsidering black again. Good job.

Mine held up pretty well untill i let my gf drive it. She curbed it and it started peeling off. But that's expected. Was on there better part of a year, though, and aside from the curb was looking good. Wish I would have put more coats on, however. I could pressure wash the wheels, but I made a point to not get too close to them. It never did peel off though. They were black, so they really never looked too dirty though.
