when I dip you dip we dip

After blacking out my grille, emblem and trim a couple of months ago (it's still holding up great after a few car wash runs) I decided to give the wheels a try. This was my first attempt at dipping...

How's the durability of the plasti dip as far as going through a car wash? And did you do the spraying yourself? The fact that its so inexpensive AND is removable makes it a really attractive option.

Re: Beachin'

It wasn't my intention to have a license plate at all but they had already drilled the holes. However, I am a diehard fan lol. I also have the frame on the rear plate.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Re: TPMS Light

My Laredo does not give any information on the EVIC as far as individual tire pressure. Other than the light itself that's all the information I have.

Re: TPMS Light

I doubt that they are mopar. They were bundled with the total price I paid. I'm gonna ask them when I take it back. Is it possible to use the same ones I had on my stock 17s?

Re: TPMS Light

I got new tire pressure monitors when I bought the new tires. Maybe something needs to be re-adjusted. I'm not sure exactly how the TPMS works.

Re: TPMS Light

No, all the EVIC displays is an exclamation point with what looks to be a tire with low pressure. No other information is shown.

Thank you so much for the tip. So far all communication we've had has been via email. He told me to give him over the weekend to find me a replacement/solution. I will call him first thing on Monday.
