Thinkin about doing my rims, front lip, badges, and anything else I think of later. How does this hold up in a car wash with brushes?

Edit: Nevermind, watched their vids on the U tube. Getting some tomorrow!

just make sure you let it set for several days before the first time you go through a car wash.

even without plastidip, if you love your car and can't wash it yourself, then go the touchless route

I would stay away from brushes completely, but the previous owner didn't, so theres nothing i'm gunna do to make the scratches worse. Whenever I get a car with nice paint, i'll never use brushes.

Heres a pic of the rims two days after dipping , i was in a rush to get the tires on so i didnt peel it off the tires until a few days after.

Also dipped the center caps and put those on also. im not totally excited about how they look .... im missing my svt's already :( but it will do for the winter.
