Plasti Dipping my Wheels & RX catch can

I know that plasti-dipping is getting mixed reviews, between the DIY guys and the "just get them powder coated" guys. The way I saw it was: what's the worst that can happen? I don't like it and then I peel it off? I can live with that. So I went to town. Had to go to 2 Home Depot stores to get this stuff. The first Home Depot was sold out of the spray kind. Well anyway, here are the pictures. The wheels are about half done, going to let them sit for awhile/overnight and then put two or so more heavy coats on. I just created a thread that has a bunch of tips (which I found on the internets) on how to use plasti dip. Plasti Dip Application Tips

I also installed an RX oil catch can. Let's just say my current catch can was/is no longer performing at the level I expect it to. Yea, leave it at that.
