I would recomend doing a minimum of 5 coats... Let it curr for a minmum for 4 hours (per instructions). When appling make sure you put steady torque on the lug to desired "tightness" (predrably use a torque wrench) this way you will minimise any pealing from the lug. Or you can just buy a set of black lug nuts cheers!!!

i did 5 coats, but I should have done more. The wheels came out pretty good. Left the chrome lug nuts and center cap.

I did the same thing. I'm yet to try and remove the lug nuts with the dip on, but I forsee it holding up pretty well. If not, I'll just re-dip or remove it from all of them.
