What is the process for Plasti Dipping the rims ?

Are there any other options - Preblacked caps I can replace my chrome ones with ?

youll want to take them off the truck for even drying and you can put index cards in the rim or just spray it on and peel the overspray off the tire afterwards...your call. but make sure you clean them really well and your first coat needs to be super thin and after that dries, the next coat will have something to "stick" to if that makes sense and it wont run as bad. also make sure its sunny outside and the hotter the better because it will dry quicker and not run. do about 4-5 coats....there is a lot of vids on youtube....good luck


now for the OP...what did you use to do the brake calipers?

I like it, the red calipers. But I think I like the gloss rims with better.
