As of right now I think it looks pretty sick. I have to basically examine it with a magnifying glass to see the bad spots and have gotten a lot of compliments so far about my "new custom rims" lol. In the future I may think of touching it up when I have time. I still have two full cans left (bought out the entire stock Lowe's had when I went down to Grand Forks last month). Was planning on trying out the grill soon and seeing how I like that as well.

Work for the same people eh??? Do I know you???
Are you stalking me??? haha just kiddinggg

If you go to dipyourcar.com there are a lot of tutorial videos on how to spray your wheels etc, they also sell spray rigs and plastidip. Hell, you can spray the entire Jeep if you want, it looks awesome

When I did my scorpion badges, it was about 75 but the sun was beating down, the dip dried in about 2 minutes. Just leave the wheels in the sun for 10 minutes, eat a sandwich, and stick them back on.

135 pages and I finally did it. The grill looks pretty good, the wind is horrible here and my garage is full, but it will work for now. I'm just trying to see if I like it enough to make it permanent or not. The badge looks a lot better black but I think I'm gonna be redoing it soon since I have a small edge wanting to peel.

They have a glossifier that you could put on for a final coat.

Or, you can use a clear and glossifer mix to give it a sheen. All are available at dipyourcar.com.

The plasti-dip guy did a comparison video and they looked identical. In fact, the imprinted code on the bottom of both cans said PD Black (both cans were of the black color) which led me to believe that it may be the exact same stuff, just more in the Armor All can and more money.

WD-40(water displacement , 40th try). It melts it, wipes off. Don't ask how I discovered it. You do however have to clean up the WD-40.

Same thing with the goof off or bug and tar cleaners. Basically turns it back to liquid and wipes off. Good to know on the WD40 too, always have a few cans of that tucked in tool boxes...

If you buy the gallon and a common spray bottle it's less than half the cost.

So I dipped my spare last night just to see how it looks and if I could do it properly. I think it looks great, but I feel like I did something wrong, I purposely oversprayed onto the tire and got nothing to peel off after 5 coats even. It basically looks and feels like a rougher texture, like I bedlined it, and I feel like there is no way I could peel it off of the rim either...I don't know how I screwed it up, I watched a ton of videos before I did it and can't see how I messed up the application. I cleaned the wheel with alcohol beforehand also. In any case it still looks good, I just feel like it didn't apply the way it should have...

So for all the plasti fans, but not fans of their limited color selection. Plastic dip whatever you want white. Then go to your local paint store and color match or purchase whatever color you like. Paint over the white. Then use plastic dip clear coat to seal and protect. The white not only makes a great primer but also gives u the ability to remove it whenever you like.

The guys on dipyourcar did a video similar to this. Instead of painting in a different color they applied a couple coats of clear over several coats of black plasti-dip. It looked good, but when they went to remove it all the elasticity was gone. It still removed without leaving any residue on the aluminum panel, but instead of coming off clean in big sheets the plasti-dip chipped and broke off in little chunks about the size of your pinky nail. Basically it made removal a royal PITA. I think you would have a hell of a time removing it without scratching or scraping the material under the plasti-dip.
