Default Plasti Dip

I may be wrong, but I don't see a thread dedicated to Plasti Dip and I thought it might be interesting to see what everyone has done with the stuff!

Here's my H3 wheels after applying coat #3. I ended up doing about 10ish coats (2 cans) on all 4 wheels, and I am VERY happy with the result!



I can't wait until all this snow goes away so I can throw these on my HB. They are gonna be my summer wheels (wrapped in 265/70-16 Cooper A/T3s and BWR lug nuts).

Ehhh, at first it did. I dipped it about 8-9 months ago...before they came out with the gallon size glossifier.........mandatory for white...dirt from the road and rain stain the white and you almost have to scrub to get it back white..scrub enough that it almost seems your rubbing off the top layer..but, here shortly a good scrub and another coat and some glossifier is going on..should be alot better then. Staying bright white instead of dirty off white..
