Black Silverblades? Plasti-dip?

I really like the look of black silverblades rims on the GC. seen several that were powder coated, but was thinkin i could easily do the plasti-dip spray coating myself for cheap. Also heard from a few people that the prep before paining would not even require sanding, I have a hard time buying into this and think that i will sand down and clean the rims, apply a few coats of the black Plasti-Dip, and if i decide to keep them black seal them with a clear coat. Anyone have experience with this or a similar project? Any thoughts, advice, or tips are much appreciated!

Re: Black Silverblades? Plasti-dip?

A lot of people here have dipped their wheels with good results but I wouldn't shoot clear over it. The clear would dry hard over the flexible plasti dip and would probably crack or flake.

Re: Black Silverblades? Plasti-dip?

How did the plasti dip work out? I bought some to do the badges versus debadging. Worked out well at first, but as I was peeling it started to take the dip off the badge itself. So I'll be redoing it later, possibly this weekend.

I used Dupli-Colors wheel paint and it turned out really nice and has been holding up on mine. Used 320 grit and some self-etching primer for prep work. The only thing I can suggest is take your time in prep work - it will make the finished product that much nicer.
