I used just about 4 cans, but I did my emblems also, just really depend how coats you wanna put on them, and also I left my wheels on when I did it , and just covered the brake assembly with trash bags

Heres my link to my video on my jeep where I used plastidip on a couple places. No damage will occur, use it on a variety of other applications. Works great!!

Have had plasti dip on my grille since april and have driven on highway up to 80mph several times (either short distances for new ink or down to NC and back.) Also drove on the beach with it. Did about 5 coats on the grille and no problems with peeling or fading, especially in the heat we've had here in the mid-atlantic. also had some super heavy rains I've driven through and have yet to have a problem. Just be smart where you spray and spray even coats and it will turn out fine. They make a clear finish for the plasti-dip as well but I didn't use it. I prefer the flat black. I also used a little on my JCR Offroad sliders, on the tops of them. Mainly for grip in the rain, snow, and mud. Thats held up very well also. Good luck and have fun

They have all the colors you could imagine if your looking for just rattle cans they have the most colors you can get, however if you wanted a custom color they have pre thinned gallons you can purchase to paint with using a sprayer which they also sell

How long do you have to let the coats dry in between. Im looking at doing my wheels and trying to figure out how long it will take. Can i do it while the wife is at work or do i need a weekend.
Thanks

It dries pretty quick, I cleaned all my wheels up and started one coat on the first one and went to the next one, and so on, and when I got back to the first wheel it was dry, about 15-20 min
