Pressure washer worked wonders. Just went to the self-serve car wash and used theirs carefully . I'm still amazed at how bright it is in the sun. I love it. Now I just need to work on the wheel gap on my monster truck

Digging the white. I want to do white on my San Remo Red Hawk Eye.

How many coats? They also look glossy.

I did 7-8 coats. The original color of the wheels was almost a color match to my paint, so it took some extra coats. I just did the dip, no glossifier or anything, so it must be the pics. Not really glossy at all.

I had a SRR 2.5i a few years back and wish I had known about plasti dip to do that. I wanted either white or gold real bad. I bet both would look awesome.

Awesome. I have the stock rims still on it. Want to dip them white to see how I really like it. I'd imagine I'd require a few less coats since its a lighter color.

Nothing big but just black dipped rims. Found that black is so easy to peel off on the tires. If you're going to use white, slip those cards or mask your tires. As you can see I still have white hanging around. Been using goo be gone and tire wet. It's a pain.

Side badges done and then used red pre-cuts from Trustkevin13 for the WRX. They fit perfectly, and look better than when I tried painting it red.

It is a custom mix all by accident actually. Some blue, black, white, and yellow to get that color. Once in a lifetime thing. I don't even know how to replicate it anymore due to it being a complete fluke. But i like how it turned out.
