Lemans Blue 4.8is Plasti Dip Glossy Rims

Hey guys i am bored and just fooling around. Ill post some Before and After pics once the cans come in. I ordered some plasti dip from dipyourcar.com (glossy) and i am planning on doing my rims. Just want to share my experience so that others have an idea of how it will look if they ever come across an urge to do it.

Ill keep ya posted once they come in!!

If anyone has seen this done you can post some pics up as well. If this doesnt flow i will probably be doing gunmetal

What color did you order with the Glossifier? Or are you just gonna spray your current rims with the Glossifier?

Cool....4 cans of black 3 cans of glossifier and bam done! I'd recommend 4-5 coats of the gloss for the best result.

If you do end up trying a gunmetal look, post some pics and keep track of how many coats you use. I'm thinking of dipping my 168s gunmetal/graphite, too. I think I would use the pearlizer instead of the glossifier, though.

Mister2's X5 is still one of my favorites with the gunmetals. Makes me want to get black 4.8 now.

TwinsPoppa, I do like how that looks. I'm wondering if the gunmetal will look as good with silver.

FYI for those interested, it looks like dipyourcar.com will be releasing an "Anthracite" color in cans within the next 4-6 weeks.

Omfg - Page 14

That's pretty much the exact color I was looking for.
