it's bullshit they mess up wheels, I would never let them get away with that haha but I'm a bitch when it comes to things like that ;) always get my way ha...

I plastdipped my stereo surround the other day, but now I'm thinking I'd rather cover it in carbon fiber lol so I peeled it all off and it sits waiting to be wrapped up

Dipped or no dipped?

They crapped my dip job at Walfart so I peeled it all off. I actually like the chromed. Suggestions? (1 is perfect and the other 3 I peeled)
