hell yea they look great , so when you taped them off and sprayed em did you have to pull the tape when the dip was still wet? i was just gonna paint over the dip on the lip , unsure of color tho , that same blue or a close enough match of silver?

Yeah I taped it off with green 3M painters tape, sprayed from the MIDDLE toward the outer edge, hitting the taped edge last and slowly peeled the tape when still wet, came out good. I thought about doing the whole wheel and painting the lip the liquid grey to color match, but did it this way.

it was the edges that got screwed up on my plasti-dip so with them taped off you may have better results.
