Default Rims, trim, and grille

I recently plastidipped my grille, my rims, and the chrome trim on the trunk for my 2008 wrx. Also I plastidipped the bottom portion of the rear bumper

Did my wheels recently and the change was drastic for me. The car looks so much more aggressive.

Hey nice job! I live in Wilkes barre and I'm curious how the whole car holds up during the winter. Also, did the Wagner give you a nice even coat?

Thanks! The dip holds up great if done properly, i did the black back in June 2012 and it lasted til just recently when I peeled it to do the blue. Nice smooth texture as well with the wagner, need to make sure not to do it in direct sunlight may end up with texture for sure.

Had a tire replaced today and scuffed the crap out of the plastidip. If I have big chunks missing would it be wisest to remove and reapply? Or can I just try to spray the now bald spots.

Honestly I would completely remove the rest and redo it. It is a lot easier

Did some crap with the headlights. It's a little too white and the grill needs to be two toned to match it if I were to keep it but:

Im planning on doing this to my 03 here soon. The paint is rough and this is a cheap fix. Just tore between green, black or a dark blue since the car is blue. Those who have completely changed the color of your car are the door jams driving you crazy?

The firs rule of plasti dip is, it peels off.If it gets damaged, scuffed, scratched or if you mess up while applying it to your car, it can be removed and reapplied.
