Plastidipped(painted) my SS wheels satin black.

I broke the front bead with my tire machine so I could get the edges of the rim better and make it easier to tape off.







Nice heater since its 8 degrees outside.











This is what I used.


And its completely reverse able. After its all dry you can peel it off like latex. And its very durable as well. You can hit it with a power washer and it stays on just fine. There is no prep besides spraying them off with water and wiping them down. Spray it on the rims and let it dry 30 minutes between coats. I did 4 coats and I love the look. Cant wait to put them on my Summit White car with flat black stripes.

Durability is no worry as long as you do enough coats. This stuff can take a power washer at a car wash. I dont take my camaro there but I have a SVT focus and I painted my euro rims with this and it held up to delta sonic car wash and a pay and spray.
