thinking about plasti dipping my wheels
as much as I think is a cheap way to go about it. I really don't want to buy new wheels yet or even have them powder coated. My touring wheels have clear coat damage since I bought my car used and even though I wash the wheels every week, it has been spreading slowly. I also have curb rash and bubbles. It would cost me more to fix the curb rash and have the wheel repainted than plasti dipping them. Most plasti dippers on here charge way too much money.
I figure I might as well try and do it myself, but I'm a little intimidated by this. The color I want is black with glossifier on top of it. I really don't want to remove the wheels, so I would be using a trash bag to cover the caliper and rotors and just apply tire shine on the tires. I suppose I should remove the center cap or cover it with something
I've been hesitant about doing this since I saw that video of plasti dip gone wrong lmao not to mention is really hot now here Florida and I would have to do this early in the morning or something.
I don't drive my car very much, so it would probably last longer than usual, but who knows, but I'm hating how terrible my wheels are looking now due to the clearcoat peeling and the bubbles
