    Why I love plasti dip!

    I've wanted to change my CE28's to mag blue but wasn't sure how I'd like them on my GPW. In general, there isn't a mag blue plasti dip color but I decided to experiment a little this weekend.

    The wheels currently had black plasti dip in them.


    Plasti dip released some new colored metalizers. I bought 3 cans of the blue metalizer and 3 cans of glossifier from dipyourcar.com

    I sprayed about 3 coats of the blue metalizer on top of my existing black plasti dipped wheels. They came out in a sort of matte finish. Here's a side by side compared to black


    I then sprayed 3 coats of the glossifer to give it some shine. Pretty close to mag blue i think!


    All of the wheels finished


    Final product on the car





    close up on the car




    Overall, I think they came out great. The color does change slightly depending on light because of the blue metalizer. Nice thing is, I can always peel it off with no damage to the original volk paint.

    That looks amazing!! I love this stuff too, I just went from chrome wheels to white nsx-r replica overnight. But how did the black plasti dip rims hold up for you?

    The black held up great for the 2 year it was on the wheels.

    I think the wheels came out great but I like the look of the black on your car better. What about white?

    How did you do the red "H" emblems on the wheels?

    The plasti dip looks amazing on both cars, how are you guys doing the dip? Paint with desire color than apply metalizer? Please share with us your steps, thinking of doing my wheels.

    I like those side shots with the blue wheels and blue reflection along the roof line. Nice.
