    Since my paint is screwed and I hate it looking like it does, I'm going to do the plasti-dip paintjob.

    Now you may think i'm crazy, here's my reasoning...and I've researched the hell out of it.

    1. Cheap substitution for paint.
    2. Durable.
    3. Easy.
    4. If you spray it on heavy, it peels off like dead skin in 1 big piece.
    5. If you need to peel it off, it wont damage the paint.

    Now I need some help...what colors should i do? I was thinking either ALL black, red with black wheels or white with black wheels....

    Let the sh!t storm begin

    What product are you talking about? If it peals off in one sheet then if it starts to peal on it's own then the whole panel will come off? That can't be good.

    That stuff is actually pretty cool. I wish it wasn't illegal here in Canada.

    You know, I've seen you guys use this and I've always wondered about it. So in other words I could spray this onto a stock wheel without any sanding or prepping and it will peel off whenever I want it to without damaging the wheel?
