Finished dipping my wheels with anthracite+glossifier tonight. It's a pretty near match to my DGM.

Dipped wheels white, anyone know any ways to get the excess off the tires? Should I spray more to build up a thicker layer? It's coming up but getting it out of the grooves is a real pain and I don't particularly want to sit at each tire for half an hour getting the res off if I don't have to.

^^ Try using a stiff bristle nylon scrub brush. That seems to get it off pretty good and quickly.

Altezza- you might be right, but neon green has been done. I wanted to do something a little different.

Bearded and Cheesey- yeah it's a custom color. Used a white base then mixed my own color. and yeah haha ordered some decals to give the wheels some accents

I used a can of white per wheel and a can of yellow per wheel. Only did the front side. Waited 15 mins between coats and an hour after final coat before putting back on the car.
Is that a tint strip or did you seriously plasti dip the windshield?

Thanks, had some curb rash to cover up, I really dig DGM on white. I actually was using this exact brush yesterday trying to get it off to no luck. It was helping, but VERY slowly . The brush is quite a few years old, maybe i'll pick up a new one at O'Reilly's on the way home from work.
