Thanks again, this has been a great thread. Just went through all of it.
Thought the plasti dip would protect my paint on the interstate this winter.
Off to purchase supplies soon.

I'd buy the blue and start hoarding it, then sell it a year or two later when there shouldn't be any left in stores lol

I also worry that the caliper might be too different of a shade of blue to match
i would say minimal would be best....maybe just the sides of the spokes?...havent seen too many like that..... or the inner lip that says sparco on it
