    First experience with PlastiDip - WRX 2010 sedan

    Did it with the wheels on the car...went well but the masking takes a while.



    After 4 cans (5 coats) here it is:







    We'll see how long it holds

    Oh and big thanks to Devon4390 for his PlastiDip Sponsor loll!

    Yes, I don't understand why it's so hard for people to remove their wheels. By the time you mask all that crap you could be half way done with painting the wheels already if you just take them off instead.

    use a sponge or something soft and just be careful with them. i plastidipped my scoop and spoiler and just go over them carefully. plastidip typically holds up well
