    Red Plasti Dip rims on my 2011 Subaru WRX

    Hey guys, I wanted to change up the look of my car and whats more different then red rims haha. Also, people were wondering if plasti dipping with the wheels on the car was easy and possible. So i made a video demonstrating it.

    If you can remove the rims then you should. But even with it on, it was pretty easy.

    Very very good video...... And props, the wheels look great. I'm thinking about red with my white wrx. How many cans did you go through?

    i did mine black which is more like matte black and it took 2 cans. they recommend 3. It's easy to do if you get out of the mind set that it isnt paint it cleans up easy.

    Yea if it was brighter i think it would have been great. But so far so good. Not bad for a temp paint.

    Red would probably be brighter with a white base coat.

    This video shows the difference in blaze colors with different base coats. I would think the same would apply with non blaze colors.

    Video well done, and a nice clean job on the rims... Can I ask you what kind of roof rack that is, and where you got it?
