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.

I think you meant adding the gloss? It was the regular black, we did 3 or 4 coats, then added a couple coats of gloss.

Did you just use Plastidip, or did you use the glossifier as well? I'm looking to plastidip my rims as well... how many cans, per wheel, did you use?

All in all, looks great!

Yes, used the glossifer, used 3-4 coats of black, then 2 of glossifier. Not sure exactly how many cans per wheel, but I am thinking close to one per wheel.
