Plasti Dip Wheels to Enhance the Appearance of Your Car

If you are thinking about enhancing the appearance of your car’s wheels, you need to know that there is an easy way to do It Yourself! You can plasti dip wheels, as this is one of the newest and latest trend in what regards changing the appearance of the wheels. Plasti Dip is a synthetic rubber coating that is basically used onto most surfaces and many people use this on their car, in order to change its color or the color of specific parts/accessories of their car. If you plasti dip wheels well, then you will get a coating that is sturdy and resistant to scratches. Also, if you are not very content with the result, you can remove it by simply peeling it off your wheels. Here are a few instructions to help you get an idea of what you need to do for this process:

  1. Take the wheels off your car and clean them thoroughly.
  2. Dry the wheels completely
  3. Mask the parts of the wheels that you don’t want to cover.
  4. Use your plasti dip to spray the first coat on the wheels. It is recommended that the first coat has 50% transparency.
  5. Spray additional coats – the number of coats you spray only depends on you. Be careful, though, as you need to wait a few minutes between coats.
  6. Wait for the coats to completely dry off.
  7. Remove the masking tape from the parts you had it applied on.
  8. Reinstall the wheels on your car.

Opting for plasti dip wheels over paint wheels has plenty of advantages, as you will discover after doing this on your own wheels. The best part about this method is that you can change the color of your wheels without doing any harm to them, especially without making any doing on their original paint. Also, as long as you apply this correctly, it will last for long periods of time – or until you decide to peel it off. Another advantage is that when you peel this off your wheels, you will not hurt the original paint of the wheels, which is under the coats of plasti dip that you applied on them.

Plasti dip combines the look and feel of paint, but it is even better than any paint, as it is as durable as rubber. Also, you can find this in a variety of colors, so that you can try your creativity and imagination and you will be happy with the results – or at least, you can change them easily, if you wish.

 

 

 

Best wax for plasti dip?

So far I’ve used a ton of spray waxes but the best one I can recommend currently is Turtle Wax ICE. I use it for my personal car and it provides the best shine and smooth feeling out of the ones I have tried so far. Other benefits of using wax on a dipped car are: added protection from chips & scratches, repelling dirt and water, and an added level of waterproofing. Overall I’d say the turtle wax Ice made it noticeably more shiny/glossy than without it.

You can buy the wax on amazon for about $8 here: http://amzn.to/1qgFlGt
