You did yours right? Got any tips Tricks? How long did it take? Also what kind of paint did you use. I dunno how hot it would get in the housing.

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

looks like mine How's the paint holding on the lip? that's the only areaon mine it seems to have a bit of trouble sticking on. Not noticeable but still..

as for the headlights, it is a PAIN in the arse to open for the OEMs lights. what i did was buy an aftermarket set (MUCH easier) and sprayed it with engine enamel paint (should hold up well with the heat from the lights)

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

Dave, dude your lights are sick. I want to do something similar. So I should buy a set of aftermarket housings? Do I still have to sand the areas I'm painting too?

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

you can try it on the OEMs and if that doesnt work, aftermarket or send it to DCSpecial(vendor) Yep, i sanded all the chrome off before the primer and paint. There's a thread by Jdubya on how he did it on his projectors, should def. check that out if you are thinking about doing it. Looks soo BA when done tho. Thanks btw

to stay a bit on topic , i might just buy a can of the plastidip for the lip

Re: How to Plasti Dip your wheels

After plenty of off roading sessions, rain, snow MUD and more; they are holding up just fine! Although, due to all the playin in the mud and stuff, I have had to touch up a couple spots. good news is that it blends perfectly and you would never know!
