I'll probably do a write-up in another area for others to follow.

I've got to say that that grey looks a hell of a lot better than the black plastidip! I may have to peel the black off my winter wheels and try this color.

You don't even need to peel it off. In fact, you could probably get away with fewer coats if you left the black on.

And the final product. I am more than impressed with how they turned out, and they look absolutely amazing on the car! Next project is plastidipping other pieces of miscellaneous trim around the vehicle.

...yes, I really need to wash my car.

My only word of advice I forgot to mention in the write-up is to do nice, light layers. The first coat I put down on the first rim was too thick and started to run, and it is visible on the wheel.

There are probably some major changes coming to the audio portion of the plan in the next few days.
