Someone had done that in this thread, I'm under the impression they join together just fine (smash bang fusion), just do the Dip thick enough.

The guy with the Rota's had experience with paint over Plasti Dip who's name I'm too lazy to look up right now.

do you have any pics to share, white on black looks good if done right. If you only want to do your wheels and grille white and leave everything else black, it won't look good.
