Did you do any prep on the wheels before you plastic dipped them? How well has it held up so far?

Did prep to a t and its already pealing. To me you cant clear coat a rubber paint so its durability is lower. Im going to paint them use an etching primer sand and clear coat all that good stuff. Would i do plasti dip agian? No. Would i reccomend it? No.

Mine has lasted a good while but it's on the body not the rims. dipyourcar.com has a clear coat made for Plastidip and it all depends on how thick you spray it as to how long it lasts. Also, if it tears or you get a scratch, you can touch it up very easily.

One of my very close friends lost her sister in a horrible car accident a week or so ago. They are holding a local car show bennifit/trick-o-treat at the local mall parking lot on Oct 21st. I would love to see all local/semi local mustangs show up and help this family. The woman that died was pregnant and left behind 3 other little ones. Please come help this family and spend some time with other FRF friends. I don't care how you come muddy as hell or clean and detailed just please be there

I find the WD 40 work good. Let it for half a minute then wipe off.

Castrol GTX high mileage oil change, washed. Last night picked up 2 1300w Sony Xplōd subs + box + 2000w California Profile amp around nine last night, modified a 480w/24A/12v ATX computer power supply to run these in my room, picked up a different amp last night (400w Dual 2 channel) to run these on, set them up @ 4ohm, 2 channel, LPF set to around 30Hz, 4/5 gain, PSU is staying cold to the touch, voltage varies between 12.05v and 12.5v hitting to no load respectively.

I love working with electronics
