Opinions on Plasti Dipped 162's

pulled the trigger and plasti dipped my 162's. only did the drivers side so far. did them with rims on the car. what do you guys think? think i might spray some glossifier though. pics were taken with iphone so quality isnt that great.

looks great! i used this one :]]

The thing about the glossifier is that you need about half as many coats to make it really shiny so maybe like two cans. Good luck! and hope to see more pics too! :]

yea they have silver and gold metalizer if you want to try that out lol but i would stay away from the gold since it will make your rims look bronze/rusting

i used 2 cans for all the rims. i have an extra one that i will use for window trim and grills when i get chance. there are some darker spots on the rims but for my first plasti dip i think they came out nice.

Looks like you have about 6 months worth of brake dust on them. Needs clear coat badly.

Wash/dry them and use 2 more cans. Will make a huge difference when you go to peel. Will take 15 min per wheel with 4 coats, can take an hour or more per wheel with 2.

I think on monaco blue or any of the black colors, glossifier will look a lot better. I left mine flat but it's on SGM and looks right imo.

i wrapped the entire brake area with plastic bags. none of it got on the brake area and used index cards around edges of rims. covered up the fender area with paper.
