I did my bumpers wheels and emblems. Pulled it off the emblems and bumpers but still on the wheels. Holds up good. Just decided I didn't want the black look. Gotta get some red and maybe do some stuff with it.

Casey, when you remounted your tires, did it screwup your wheel rim?
I was afraid it would, so I just did mine mounted.

No it didn't mess anything up. I didn't take off my weights either I taped around them. I took mine off because I wanted to keep the center caps shiny.

Thanks, I just sprayed over the weights, but did tape off the valve stem. If this stuff holds up for the winter, I'm going to rid myself of a set of wheels and maybe two sets of tires. That way I can just run the 31's I want, and dip those wheels for the winter that i had on for the nice weather.

I've had mine dipped for months and hasn't chipped or anything. If it chips you spray over it and it's good again.
