    I wanted to get some plastidip to do my stock wheels and bumpers in black... just for a different look for the winter while my 20s are in storage. I don't want to paint the wheels because I'm not entirely sure I'd like them being black, and the bumpers I would do because I could easily have a different look in the winter and go back to chrome for the summer. The problem for me is that it is ridiculously hard to get here in Canada and it isn't sold in Canada for less than $17 per can as opposed to the $5-6 per can everyone says it costs in the states.

    watch the youtub videos there are tons , i dunno but i seem to see some good results. sure if you want a good job it will take time but for the most part its a cheap badass way to change your look i think.

    I'll be plastidipping my entire truck tomorrow I've had it on my rims for well over a year and just peeled it all off today and reprinted because I had a few rips

    I'll take some when I'm doing it. I've been very happy with my rims ill be keeping them until I do 20s to clear some willwoods. I've decided I'm keeping this truck so all the money I had for a down payment will be going in it

    Me too you making this thread gave me the itch to go ahead and do it. I spent all day doing some prep work and getting rid of the rest of my emblems and all the gunk underneath which is a pita

    It isn't a very smooth finish. But if you take your time it'll look good. My reason for doing my whole truck is it is scraped to hell. Plus ill peel it all off in a few years when I actually reprint her, I just don't see a reason to do it while I'm still in college with all these crazy people driving around me I've been hit twice n a parking lot in my 4 years at bama. Didn't have the time I thought I would today so I just did my tailgate to see if ill like it
