Lightbulb *Official Plasti Dip Thread*

Plasti dip is pretty popular from what I have been reading.
Post up pictures of things you have used plasti dip on.

I dont have any right now,
BUT
I plan on doing this:

Plasti dip rims all black
plasti dip spoiler black
find red plasti dip and try it on the chrome part of my rims



people have used this on hoods, rims, grills, interior, trunk just to give you an idea. Google it and see what you can find. Might be a cheap way of finding out how your rims/ anything else looks in a different color.

Plasti-dip is kind of cool. I mean something that can give, for all intents and purposes a whole different perspective through color to something but can be washed off if it is cool!

The only negative is, if you really do like the finished result, plasti-dip loses some of its use because you will eventually have to paint it rather than just keep it on or touching it up.

here is my a picture of my stock (SE,LT) rim with the caps left aluminum.

yeah its a paint that turns into a rubber like substance and you can peel it off when you want to take it off.

People have been spraying their whole rims with this stuff. Especially black.
Heard it protects your rims for the winter
