    A Plastidip Question...

    So a few weeks back I painted my wheels with Plastidip. Came out ok, however(my fault for not thinking) I didn't prime them. I only bought 3 cans of BLAZE yellow and used it all up. If you look at the face of the rim they look fine but if you're up close and especially if you look at the side of the spokes you can tell they need some more coats. Of course I got caught up with work and stuff and didnt get around to the other coats right away. My question is do I need to peel off the coats currently on it to redo them or can I spray wet coats on top of the coats that already dried a few weeks back? Thanks for the help!

    Either would work IMO. Its easily removed so if you don't like it when you just respray then take it off. That's the beauty of Plastidip.
