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!

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.

Thanks. I'm planning to test on an extra rim, pics and comments will follow

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.
