It's not an Instagram pic. It does have a Pro effect which is really not much difference from the original. But here is the original...

That was a quick photoshop to show me other possibilities as I think my stripes are too close together (1 inch apart). As of tonight, after I get a few more cans of white paint, I think I am going to make the stripes themselves a bit wider and slightly further apart, maybe 2.5 inches apart, with the stripes getting close to the windshield washer units.+


This is what I actually did . . .

no, becasue then it won't peel off if I am not mistaken. If you are looking for the glossier look, get a can of glossifier.

plasti dip has there own clearcoat , so in essence yes you can "clearcoat" it. this stuff is redonk , it almost goes on perfect , as it drys it evens itself out and even small runs dissapear once dry.

Dude... They have Monster Green available in gallon form at dipmyride... I wonder how the stockers would look like in that ;)

Question: when doing wheels, do you only spray from the front? What about getting the "whole" wheel?
