Plasti Dip Paint!
 
Soooooo i just picked up a 328is from someone on max
Pretty clean, decent condition only thing i didn't really like was the fact the style 5's had a red lip.. I was looking for a quick solution & i heard of Plasti Dip paint -- did some research & decided to give it a shot..

Here's a pic of the wheels before

And here are pics after

For those who don't know, Plasti Dip paint can easily peel off and wont damage the paint under & pretty much sticks to any surface..

I plan on either getting these style 5's refinished with a polished lip & gold centers or perhaps just stripping the dip and selling the wheels as is.. we'll see what happens

nice looks alot better. would you trust that stuff on the paint of your car? thought about blacking out my roof with it..not sure if it'll peel off after a summer of baking in the sun..

Quite a few people are running around with it on their roofs right now. I dunno about long term effects however.

Stayed clean easily, just cleaned it as if it was normal paint!

& This was a whileee ago, I think I did 2 coats.. lasted throughout the whole summer then I pealed it off & sold the wheels!
