I like it man. It would look good with a few coats of glossifer on it as well instead of flat. But then again it matches the flat trim. either way, nice.

I think I'm about to do my whole car! I've been reading this whole thread and I'm getting to excited lol. This is gonna be fun. Now I just need a place to do it. Thats the difficult thing. I don't have an indoor area to paint.

Any suggestions as for something to Plasti dip either black/white on a black 11? I've painted so much junk on my car I'm literally about out of ideas.
Maybe a/some white dipped vertical stripe(s) on the hood? IDK!

I love white wheels on a black car so I'd say plasti dip your wheels white.
