Dip.

I'm buying white wheels in a couple weeks.

I hope you're not the type of person that hates dirt because the white dip grabs everything. The upside is you can just powerwash it all off and not have to worry about getting down there to dry it since dip doesn't waterspot. Just make sure you put 5+ coats on since the white is really thin compared to the other colors.

Oh yeah, I've got plenty of time to coat the **** out of these. Each wheel is getting at least one full can.

This **** runs like crazy...it's ****ing annoying and I still haven't figured how long to give it between coats.

30-45 minutes should do it. How close are you spraying that it's running?

Probably the dip itself then. They changed manufacturers so the consistency of the product got a bit ****ty. As long as you're either not ridiculously picky like I am or don't have any running on your final few coats it'll look fine

Well guess what was stolen in NJ this morning


and this one was stolen from Queens last week


I would love to see how the owners would react face to face with the thieves.

Yeah, it's starting to thicken up. I'm sure 5 or 6 more coats will cover it. I'm probably going to exchange that can, it's no bueno.

I sprayed about 7-10" away in 30 degree cold and it wasn't coating very well. It was spotty and needed to be applied thick. Once you get a few coats on and it dries it looks really good so don't fret.

Once I get the car back I'm dipping my interior

I hate this **** right now.

It's super thin, thinner than spray paint, and it is nearly impossible to coat everything without it running.

I guess I'll do all 4 with a base of the dip and get some white spray paint for better coverage.

Nice.

Ordered camber bolts for the rear, just in case. $39 shipped for whiteline, not bad.

Don't spray paint over the dip whatever you do. It turns it into a solid piece rather than a peelable film. It'll take you days to get every last bit of dip off if you cover it with anything.

I hate this plastidip ****. It's so ****ing hard to cover everything and the cans have barely any dip in them. I ran through 2 cans already and I'm only 3 THIN coats in.

Can 3 sprayed completely different. It came out like spraypaint instead of chunky bull****.

Now it's working a bit better.
