I don't see many 05-09s with plasti dipped rims! Well here's some pics of mine!

Hey guys, it's been a while since I last posted on here. I'd say about 5 months or so, so it's good to be back with my Mustang in working order (that's another thread though). In the meanwhile, I decided to do my rims to see how I'd like black rims. And I must say, I'm very pleased.

I also have a quick question, if anyone can help me out. Well, we were in a rush while plasti dipping my rims and they still came out very well, with just a tiny bit (like little particles) of chrome showing when the sun hits it. I want to fix it this Sunday with the rest of the plasti dip I have left (2 full cans and 2 half full cans). Would I have to peel off the plasti dip and spray my rim again, or could I just spray over the previously applied plasti dip on the rim and have it cover up the last coat? The reason I'm asking this is because earlier today we were dealing with a bad coat we did the day before (didn't do enough coats and sprayed it too far away, made it look gritty) and when we tried to spray over it to make it look shinier and smoother, it wouldn't smoothen out so we just ripped it off and started all over again. I just don't want to waste some plasti dip only to have to take it all off and perhaps even buy some more cans.

Oh, and here's the pics! I'm on an app so I don't know how it uploaded all of them yet.

I think you have to take it off. Not sure it works so well on dry plasti dip.

I really like the chrome wheels - they look great. Did you get all that black stuff off now? That looked awful.

It looked better than I thought it would. Definitely like the chrome better though. Gloss black or no black for me.

You can just spray right over, but you will have to spray the whole rim again and not just that one spot. I have also seen a video of the guy from dipyourcar use paint thinner to even off any rough spots then sprayed it again to fix the issue.

I've had mine painted since July I think and its held up pretty well so far. But yes check out the dipyourcar website for tips and all that jazz.

you can make it gloss black with their plasti dip glossifier, it looks pretty legit. I think chrome on mustangs are gross so im pretty much spraying this stuff over anything shiny lol maybe its just cuz im white..

I'll be getting glossy black rims eventually when I want to get wider tires. I was going to get AMR rims but after plasti dipping these bullitt rims, I dont know whether to go AMR or Bullitts again.

Thanks gt1120, I'll do that right away!

And I'm definitely going to have to check out that website. I didnt even know they had one.

I dont think it's because you're white, because I'm a mutt and I'm not a fan of chrome either. xD Especially when I'm trying to get a black/white contrast thing going on.

So, how is this stuff holding up to daily wear and tear? Does it peal off easily? I have some SVT GT500 wheels that I want all flat/matte black and this plastidip stuff may do the trick, if it can hold up.

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

Plasti dip's worst enemy is friction, but I've seen people with plasti dipped rims for months straight so I think it holds up pretty well. I usually have to use my knife to poke a hole in order to peel it off.

Like I said above I've had mine on since July or August and it still has yet to peel off(and yes this is my DD). Also tis winter time up here in the great white north and still holding strong, as with the stripes on my hood.
