Looks good Farley! I think I am going to do mine as well before putting them on for the winter.

Hopefully it does not snow for another week lol.

How durable is this stuff? I saw one guy at a meet, and it looked like it was chipping off in areas.

Is it safe to do this in the basement? Or should I do it in the garage (burr cold garage lol)

That was probably me. I'd say it holds up pretty well. Again, mine chipped because I foolishly sprayed them before mounting tires (RFT's at that) and only had 2 cans (for 4 wheels) so it was a thin layer.

If you do it properly (after the tires have been mounted/balanced, 1 can per wheel) it should come out nicely and very durable.

I posted a thread about it: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=524804

I will find out how durable it is when I put it though the car wash, but I did use all 4 cans with a 5th one to spare.

It's is safe to do in the basement with windows open, I did it in my apartments and it smelled really good, I think I got high for awhile. So make sure your windows are open!!

Those look like they turned out good. I go down to the states a couple days a week (its only about a 15 minute drive) one trip I picked up some plasti dip for my grills from home depot. Maybe I should get a few more cans and try to do my rims.

Just picked up 5 cans of white.

Hey Farley do you need the rest of your fifth can? Thinking of adding some black accents to my rims after I cover them in white.
