Do u have any pic of ur rims with the liner on them . How did u do it ? Sanding etc.

yeah that's the cleanest spray I've seen on this forum yet. I'd give it a few coats of clear coat and make it more satin but that's personal preference.

Thanks and this was the condition of the rim before I sprayed it. And thanks for the thought I might try that out👍

[QUOTE="onelonewolf2345;2057176"] Original rim and tires[/QUOTE

I'm assuming you sprayed on the second tone on the bottom of the body? Do you have any more pictures of that?

I was thinking about it aswell

Any special tricks?

I just plastidipped mine. It came out perfect. And you can undo it if you choose to. I used a whole can per rim. Like 5$ a can.

I'm thinking of doing the same to mine. Maybe not the hood, but rockers and such for sure. Have a shit ton of dents in that area so I can bang those out while I'm at it.
