In case anyone is thinking about it and wanted to know how it looks, I did 3/5 of my car today. It got cold (60 degrees) and it seemed to cause problems with drying etc, so I held off till tomorrow for the others. I will say, I learned what NOT to do today... but it worked out well I thought. Does need some touch ups here and there.

Never done it before, and it seems pretty painless. I did this while wheels were on the car, and didn't tape anything up except the valve, and covered the brakes with garbage bags.

Looks great!
I was looking forward to seeing these pics....thanks!

The contours of the rims give them a two tone look even in black. The Sahara rims look dope with plasti-dip on them. Everything I expected and more.

The black lugs are a nice touch :thumb:
I left them on (meaning just plasti dipped the whole wheel as is).. just tried to minimize the work level. Hoping I didn't miscalculate, because the first time I need to take those wheels off will pull the plasti dip right off.

Trying scoring around the lug nuts with a tooth pick. My guess is that you will lose the dip on the lugs, but keep it on the rims if that works.

Plasti-dip makes those wheels look 100% better!
Not to me, but we each get our own opinion, part of what makes the US a great place :)

My wife is with you.. she doesn't see the sense in changing them at all. I knew from the second I saw the jeep on the lot that I would replace them, but wanted to see if I could do something temporary to get what I wanted.
