    Just keep in mind plastidip can trap moisture behind it and not let it escape properly. Before doing this be sure there is nothing in or around the area you wouldn't want to risk eventual rust.

    I would do a vinyl wrap than the plasti dip. To avoid over spray and what not. The idea looks good, I was considering doing something like this as well but different product.

    Vinyl would look way better, but I don't have the patients for that lol.

    I actually tried using vinyl at first. But my skills were lacking in that department. The angles are much more awkward than it looks at first glance.

    If you are better with a can try using a vinyl base paint. You can look into Autodip | The Next Generation of Peelable Paint. I plan on painting my wheels bronze with their product.

    It looks pretty decent. If the vinyl scares you off you can probably pay a shop to do it for cheap. It wouldn't take much effort for a professional.
