Those rims look sharp. How did you paint them? What kind of paint and applicator did you use? What about prep?

Why remove the plastic dip? I never heard of it until just now, does it not last? If you do flat black, what kind of paint would you use?

I always thought wheels had to be powder-coated or a similar process? This is interesting.

I can probably push to about a year like that maybe 18 months before I have to do it again. Plastic dip is sold at homedepot or any hardware store it basically stick to anything if is clean and the more coat you do the easiest it is to remove and the better it comes out.

Powder coating is a more permanent (and expensive) coating. Plastidip looks good but is easy to remove when it gets worn/scratched. Normal rattle can will look good, but won't last, and will be a pain in the *** to remove.

I did the cladding, rear bumper (front when bye bye, was held on by zipties and hope), and wheels, on my hideous red/purple/whatever zj, need to do something about the body color though.
Also did the interior fake wood trim in black too.

I'll edit this in the am with an updated pic.

This makes 9... There's more than you think.... I see them here in NY all the time. None with everything blacked-out like mine though.
