Default Going to plasti dip rims.

So i get paid soon and Im tired of these chromes. they look like crap on the car and I cant afford new rims. so im just going to go ahead and plasti dip them and hope that it improves the look. Was going to order from the dyc website but Its cheaper if i just run to the store. Ill post a pic of what they look like on this post sat. or sun.

I would try to leave the lip chrome if possible. It might look pretty good.

i would buy the cans at home depot not dyc the cans are cheaper at home depot but theres usually only black i bought one of the can handle attachments at home depot made it so much easier to use the cans for so long and make a good smooth finish.

this is all plasti dip
