It was kind of a joke, I'm glad everyone is so concerned about it.

You know that more people see your plate every day in person than on the internet, right? Covering it up is not preventing theft at all.

Experienced that just last weekend...I decided to remove my plastidip from my wheels and it was easy on the front but the sides and back of them were a pain in the ass. However, that was mainly my fault for putting a thick enough layer. With plastidip the thicker the coat easier it is to peel off.

okay, but you were able to get it all off right? I'll just make sure to coat it on a little bit thick

You'll be fine. Just make sure it's a thick coat. If it's thick enough, it's sooo easy to peel off

Like he said, and yes some elbow grease and occasional squirts of goo gone for really hard parts

I dont understand this, if it comes off whenever you want it, why would you put it on a lip. Something that may make contact with the pavement and likely would rip? I had thought doing this with mine, but with 6 inches of clearance and it hitting the bottom of the lip everyday I go up the driveway, how well would the paint last?

Wasn't sure if dipping the side vents on WRB would also look good, since there's no other matte black trim on the side, and the pieces stick out a bit, so I left them as is. The flexible (EPDM? I can't really remember) vent grille is already black, so that's enough for me.

Putting my Bayson R CS Type-1 replica lip on this weekend, so I'll see how the look goes all together.



Love it, I was thinking of doing this along with the side vents and hood scoop trim.......Good Job

I've scrapped mine a few times and it's still holding on. I didn't spray the underside though, so I would have to hit pretty hard to get the topside messed up.

I did my rims in white a few weeks ago. It turned out well at first but I wouldn't recommend using white if you are super anal about your car like me because it was pretty difficult to keep clean IMHO. I got sick of it and just peeled it off. It was a major pain to get off in some spots along the spokes of the wheels. I just ended up power washing them and it came pretty clean. Since it cost me like $20 I can't really complain.

Here's a pic since I haven't really seen any other examples of white

the white looks good but I can only imagine how nasty that gets after a few days from brake dust and other dirt, that would drive me insane!

Yep! It drove me nuts after like a week they were so dirty that I couldn't get it clean enough. I scrubbed so hard it started to Peel so I just then was power washed off. Rims were super clean after that though

Yeah i feel like brake dust might get kinda stuck in the texture of the plastidip but I bet they were clean as hell after the power wash! My wheels need that before I plastidip them for sure!
