    Fun facts:

    If you have 3+ coats, it's possible to lightly sand imperfections out. (did it on my scoop)

    Don't let wax touch it. (accidently hit my emblems)

    I appreciate it guys.

    I am interested to see how that clear works out for you. It does appear good in the pictures, which clear did you use Nightfire?

    I got some new wheels today. They are polished right now, but I'm really thinking about Plasti Dipping them.

    It's raining really bad here right now, but as soon as I can wash the car and get them nice and polished up, I will post pics.

    If they look good polished then roll with them that way. The only reason I went the plastidip route was because of the plain-jane look of my car prior to doing it. I used the plastidip to give me an idea of what black rims would look like on the car as I might purchase some black saleens for it

    I used a little can of the Dupli Color clear. Im still debating on whether I want to use it on the wheels, I really like how penguins wheels came out.

    I haven't really thought about getting black rims, but since this thread, I figured what the hell. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I'm digging it so far.

    Dooo it Nightfire, at least it's not permanent. :shrug:

    I have gotten nothing but compliments since I did it.

    Hi, this is my truck and I'm addicted to Plasti-Dip. Just thought I would show my recent work. Started with the nerf bars, much better then chrome for my truck. Then instead of changing out my wheels like I do every year, I gave them a coat of the dip. Come spring I'll peel it off and get back to chrome.

    Here's a comparison.

    Then I did my roof, always wanted to know how it would look black but holy ****. It was so hard to keep it even, that after 4 coats I gave up. It looks bad *** in my mind but let me know what you think. Really thinking about getting my roof sprayed black.
