03 half "blackout"

Here's a pic of my stock wheels after Plastidip. Did these about 2 years ago, still holding up pretty well. Center caps were sprayed with an opaque black tint as a test, but they turned better than I though, so they stayed.

Agreed. If you do want them a dull black color just don't wash them, you'll eventually get the same look.

You can get the wheels dipped and glossy if you want. You can spray with the Pdip glossifier, or any glossy coating. As you're spraying the Plastidip, and not the wheel, you can remove it all just as easy with a toothpick to get under the coat. I left mine with the matte finish, as that was my preference.

And while I blacked out all my chrome, I think a bit of chrome still looks good...so I'll say don't spray the rest of the front end. Make it yours, however you like it.

Long needed update...

I finally decided to do the chrome, with bed liner.... I am pleasantly surprised, and with the grille guard painted with the same stuff, and the lower lights tinted, this thing looks mean. I'm getting there, slowly but surely. Now wheels are next. I have tint already just not in these pictures. Ill try and get new ones this weekend.

Needs something to break it up. Different colour bowtie maybe? Not bad though.

I was considering a red outline on the bow tie, or red in general. I have some red accents, like shock boots, radiator core support, and diff cover...
