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

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.
The black held up great for the 2 year it was on the wheels.
Wow, tat looks amazing. I love the stuff as well. When I did my old wheels, the dip held up great. I have a buddy who does his e46 m3 a different color each season and it looks great. HIghly debating to go red on my car.

NSX, making drivers smile since 1991.
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?
