How did you peel the edge of the first one? When removing the tape? Can it be touched up?

Just has to spray it again in the spot and it should be fine.

Hmm, don't think I like it, but good job none the less. I'd never have patience to do something like that lol

Great job on an "economical" method for coloring rims. Can't wait to see them on the car. Best part, if you don't like it, peels right off. Plasti-Dip is magic...use it all the time on my motorcycles.
