Tip:
I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet but I found out that if you decide to remove plastidip and it won't peel off because you didn't put enough coats on you can go back and add a couple coats and let it dry, it will then peel off just like you added the right thickness in the first place. I found this out on my S10's wheels.

Has anyone plastidipped their trunk spoiler on a 2SS? (or any spoiler like it) Does it hold up to you constantly touching it to slam the trunk? I don't want to work around it, I'll touch it frequently...anyone?

has anyone painted their rims while on the car? if yes, how did you do it?

If you get some on your tire or the bumper does this stuff come off easily? or?

I did my S10 with them on the truck. I just stuffed plastic bags from the store in the holes and then painted them. I also sprayed the tire too to make an even coating. I figured its rubber too so it couldn't hurt. It still looks as good as the day I sprayed them.

the "complexion" of the plastidip is different depending on the distance when spraying - spray with quicker hand speed close up (6") and you get a smoother surface that 12" to 15" which gives a more rough coating....

Just did my rims - first hit it with a few coats of black, then some Dupli-Color bronze wheel paint. I wanted a different color combo than anything else I've seen out there, and I think it looks fantastic. Being a roadcourse/endurance guy, anything with gold wheels and yellow headlights gives me a warm and fuzzy.
The car is really dirty in this shot, I'm going to wash it tonight an post some better shots of it in the Autos For Sale thread, where this car is listed for sale. I've got a few other plasti-dipped bits as well, I'll be highlighting those as well.
