    Trying to... for some reason I was able to link hi def pictures earlier in the post but now I have to [IMG] link from photobucket.

    Thanks tho... I almost stopped with just black cause it looked good and I was worried the copper would not turn out the way I wanted. Well I love it and definitely glad I keep going.

    They look awesome! It's like the WRB with gold, teen-aged Subaru grew up into a sophisticated, tuxedo T-shirt wearing, plasma blue with bronze wheels kind of gentleman. Spectacular!

    EDIT: Props to Ruh Roh for coming up with that epic tuxedo shirt simile!

    That was funny.

    So you did multiple coats of Plastidip? How's the finish? I always worry that they are gonna chip or something like that since it's a rubber coating.

    You have to do multiple light coats, and super light with the metallic enhancers cause it will be heavier in the corners and light on sides of surfaces.

    As far as chipping there shouldnt be any... since its a elastic compound. You may have some peel but that is just the nature of the beast.

    I basically wanted to see what bronze would look like against PBP before I get too interested in 18" Rota SVN Sports Bronzes

    Alright figured I would update this since ive gone Plasti Dip crazy... I had 1 Black can left over from doing the wheels and figured I would hit the emblems. I think they came out nice and give that suttle pop to the Plasma Blue.


    Black Side emblems

    Black Rear emblems

    Black Front WRX emblem
