Caught the Plasti Dippin' bug.

Finally got the approval from the misses (after showing her some pics on this forum) to get some Dip action on the Jeep.
Firstly it's my first Jeep, and just had to get one after seeing the Blackhawk at work one day. But couldn't really turn down all the extra features of the Limited for just a little bit more money. I really only wanted the Blackhawk for its colour coded bumpers and black wheels anyway.
And, after seeing all the cool stuff Fonzi does with Plasti dip, (as well as the folks on this forum) I thought I'd take a few days from my excruciatingly long holiday and get the wheels done myself.

So without further adieu...

Re: Caught the Plasti Dippin' bug.

What did you use to clean and prep the wheels before plastidipping them?

Re: Caught the Plasti Dippin' bug.

First of all I took the wheels off. I just thought that way would be easiest. Gave them a good clean inside and out with just soapy water. Gave a good spray and wipe with septone wax and grease remover. I taped off the back of the rim just so I'd have an easier time removing the plastidip when it inevitably comes off. I was considering doing the inside of the wheel but if you have a good look you'll see they're already black. Then i just sprayed away. 4 even coats on each. Lay the glossifier on pretty heavy... I may in the future add more glossifier, but considering the price of plastidip in Australia, it may be cheaper to just get new wheels.
