Plasti dip wheels with gloss clear coat

Plasti dipped my stock wheels because i got bored and m new wheels wont be here for 3 weeks. I put a gloss clear coat over the plasti dip to get a shinier finish. Came out pretty good and seems pretty durable. Heres how they turned out:

Looks good I wonder if the clear defeated the purpose of Plasti-dip. Will you still be able to just peel it off when you're tired of the look?

+1 for effort.

I mean this in only the most constructive of ways, brother, but that looks like total shit. I've eat dinner platters of easy-over eggs that aren't as runny as your finish and the clear is an interesting blend of smooth and rough that gives it that, "Not really sure how to do this, but it's on!" look.

Not trying to be an ass here, just being honest. Attempt 1 is fail. Give it another whirl, IMHO, but this just isn't a quality job.

Its the finish under the plasti dip on the rear wheels. The rear wheels were sanded down before the plasti dip to be painted but i decided i just wanted to plasti dip them and not deal with actual paint. The wheels are super dirty to, so some parts arent as shiny as others. Trust me, It doesnt look like that in person.

If you haven't trimmed the inner tab on your front fenders, do it before putting your new wheels on. don't want you cutting brand new tires


Oh yeah, I like the "gunmetal" color thats in your avitar. But since it peels off, you can change it whenever you get bored again

Why not use the glossifier from plastidip itself?

Because the plasti dip glossifier is only online and this was easy to pick up at the store. This was also just a little temporary project until my wheels come in.

looks good, but if u watch some vids when u use normal clear coat on plasti dip it makes it not come off as nice, it still comes off but ull be there for awhile instead of it comin off in one easy piece in some cases,

i know its just to kill time until ur new wheels come in, just thought i would clear it up for ppl asking, and this is not known by experience only by watchin a FAQ video by the dip your car guys

So true. Especially when you ask a spacer question in a 14-month old thread that has nothing to do with spacers.

If you read above...he had 25mm spacers with this factory wheel set up...so...was wondering if he needed to roll fenders

Again, this thread is 14 months old. The OP doesn't even own this TL any more, so he probably doesn't check AZ, let alone this thread. You said you already bought the spacers. Why don't you just put them on your car and find out if you need to roll the fenders or not? No one has any idea how low you are, so your question is impossible to answer. Or search more like someone already suggested. Not trying to bust your balls, but a little initiative would do you wonders...
