So I was considering doing something interesting and wanted to get someone with some photoshop skills to help me out.

I want to do this but in the 45th Anniversary red:



Here is a picture of my backend if it helps:

I would try plastidip. It sprays on and if you don't like how it looks, you can just peel it off.

I bought a cheap set of dash inserts and covered them in vinyl to match my doors.

I have a question for those of you that have plasti dipped your 45th wheels. Is it hard to peel off because i feel like it would be difficult with all the grooves and crevices in the wheels. Thank you for all feedback and comments!

Yes it is.

I've done it twice and it sucked both times.


I've heard using WD40 helps. Spraying WD40 on it and then it will supposedly come off easier.

Be careful with using a power washer on your car, the pressure can damage the clear coat and paint. My neighbor just bought a set of chrome wheels that were pressure washed by the previous owner and the chrome is peeling off like a bastard.

Your may want to add some bolt-ons to make to tune worth it. CAI usually doesn't require a tune and you would not gain much over stock unless you at headers, cam etc....
