Plasti-Dipped Chrome Rims

Plasti-Dipped Chrome Rims

Postby TameTheFlame [OP] » May 28 2013, 11:47pm

Yesterday I plasti-dipped my chrome clad rims. I put 4 coats of black plasti-dip on each rim. I then powerwashed them at a car wash and they held up perfectly. This is how it turned out; tell me what you think!

Thanks y'all. I'm going to get a glossifier on it to make it shine, so it's not so matte black. It took me roughly 2 hours, 1 hour per side. (Two wheels at once).

Love that! If I wasn't planning on buying black wheels already, I'd be doing that

Looks damn good. I prefer the flat black, but gloss black will look awesome too.

I plan on doing the same but I think I'm going to leave the center caps chrome. How many cans per wheel? Looks awesome on the truck great work.

Thank you! I honestly used less than two cans, with 4 coats per wheel. I would get two cans just in case though.
