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

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