    DIY Plasti Dip Your Rims. For Dummies.

    Hey Guys. Here are some simple instructions to plasti dipping your rims.

    Required Equip:
    Jacks and Stands. 2-3 cans of Plasti dip and Index cards

    1. Remove wheel from vehicle.

    2. Clean your rims to your liking.

    3. Insert index cars around the rim, from paint getting on the tires.

    4. After shaking the spray can for 1-2 mins. apply light coats. Heavy coats may end up drippy. After each coat, let it dry for a bit.
    Repeat this step 4-5 times.

    5. After 4-5 coats let it dry completely, before putting the rims back on the vehicle.

    As for step 2, the wheels need to be CLEAN to make the plastidip turns out right.
    and as for the index cards, thats a nifty idea, but just in case you do get some on your tires, dont worry because it just peals right off!
    Looks good though, i almost think having the insert still gloss would have made it pop like crazy!

    From another post but here was my finished product on my GS-R

    Thats what i was thinking, and might peel off the plasti dip from the inserts.
    Plasti dipping is so fun. I'm going to plasti dip my whole car.

    JK, but seriously.

    Remember if you are doing this near the car, cover the whole car so that you do not get plastic coat dust all over the car.

    Thanks for the instructions.
    I'm actually looking for a nice set of black rims for my white V when springs comes around. If I couldn't find anything nice in the market, I may just plastic dip the original rims until something nice pops up in the market.
    One question though, it's pretty difficult to get Plastic Dip in Ontario & all I can find is the gloss black and have never seen matte black at all. I'm wondering if you are using matte black or not? However it seems there is only one black according to the Plastic Dip website, not sure though.
    Cheers

    Nicely done! I may have to do mine in the spring, but leave my insert red. How are the inserts mounted, any idea? I might end up masking them off, but would rather just take them out while spraying.

    About how far away did you hold the can while spraying? I have read that makes a difference with the texture you get.

    Once again, mighty fine work.

    The inserts are stuck with some adhesive. So I do not recommend taking it off. And if your going to use plasti dip, dont worry about masking the inserts off. Just spray paint the while rim and once it drys, peel the paint off the inserts.

    I'll post better pics tomorrow. It was rainy and couldnt take any decent pics. If there are people interested in spray painting the grill with plasti dip, i will post a DIY with detailed instructions. More detailed then the DIY rims.

    I could have sworn when i had the wheels off they had like 2 or 3 screws on the back of each spoke... could be wrong though.

    I am hoping to do this soon with plasti-dip:

    I just hope it's noting going to be as difficult as I think it might be

    I just think it would look really cool with the green inserts.

    Did you also paint the inside of the rim as well as the backside of the wheel? Or is the inner rim still silver?
