just clean and spray. don't sand, plastidip acts just like vinyl and clings to the paint. masking off it the same, but you don't need to worry about spraying on other surfaces because it just comes right off with a rag.

I've also done my rims and it's held up really well, plus it was cheap to do!

Has anyone done this to the chrome front on the second gens? I'd be curious to see what it looked like.

Question: How many cans do you need to do your wheels. I have been thinking about spraying my winter wheels.

Here is mine. "Euro Style" Vents and my chrome trunk trim when I had a 00-04 rear end.

I need to do this.. to protect my wheels from the winter. Then I can redo them in the spring.

but I might just do the spokes
