On the grille by the logo and on the sideview turn signals. The signals still worked well in the day and night so I kept it.

Never got a chance to do more sadly

^WTF?

Are you trying to make a point, if so that's not a very solid one.

I have plastidipped winter wheels - they ride just fine. Lots of members on here have plastidipped wheels and if they were off balance, we would have stopped dipping wheels years ago. You can't re-balance a plastidipped wheel without ruining the plastidip - it is impossible, you will peel it up in the process. It's very safe to say that all the hundreds of thousands of plastidipped wheels on the road were all balanced before dipping.

<--- This guy plasti-dipped his wheels with no rebalance and had no issues.

Plasti-dip weighs virtually nothing. If you sprayed a whole can onto one square inch, you may have a tiny vibe, but I truly doubt it.
