Thanks, I like your interior man.
And the rims cost me 14 dollars to do, just picked up 2 cans, 5 coats per wheel, and bam. New look. 😎

Thank you it really only cost me about $70 to do my interior. But I love my ranger so gotta make it look good. Put a sub in but its so big I had to take a front seat out to put it in. I been thinking about doing a blow through or just painting my camper shell flat black and putting that on.

No glossifier. Just 2 1/2 cans of plasti-dip.

Gotcha, might be the photo, but they look a bit shinier than mine did. Almost a satin finish.

I painted my bumpers, rims, mirrors, and grill with plastidip with no prep work besides washing them and everything turned out great

I recently painted my interior any plastidip was definitely crossing my mind but after doing my bumpers and grill I found it a little more difficult to keep clean, also I recently used armor all on the plastidip and it has stayed clean for a week or so image-3581766250.jpg image-1759439165.jpg Radio bezel is painted with plastidip

I've got both my valances done, the lug covers on my wheels, and I just did the grille today.
I also used the smoke on my corners.
Pretty easy to do and really cheap and removable.

I was kinda hesitant about plasti dip but I just went ahead and painted interior anyway because if I didn't like it then it would just peel right off anyway, but so far it looks and holds pretty good!
