Oh ok...well I am very skeptical about them cause the sun and how old they are this pieces are very fragile...I try one and I almost break it and I didn't even do any force on them.

I just think I am going to have to tape them and put some news paper around the board to paint them with out taking them out but I am not sure about that either...

My wife and I read through this thread and grabbed some Plastic Dip yesterday afternoon. Went to my father in law's and got one coat on each of the front wheels, but it was so cold it took about an hour for each to dry, so we threw them back on and I'm going to finish in the morning. How many coats per is recommended? I can see a couple spots on each I'm going to grab, but I can't see getting 3 or more coats on each wheel with the three cans we bought. Using too much per coat? :o

From what I've seen, as long as you have no spots that are sticking up, allowing wind and whatever else to pull it up, it will withstand quite a bit wherever you put it. I've seen a few videos of people pressure washing parts that have been coated with Plasti-Dip and it holds up well. It couldn't hurt. Do whatever you need to do with it. If it starts to come up anywhere, all it takes is a $5.98 can and a little taping and you can coat right over it.
Just finished up the 3rd coat on each front wheel, waiting for them to dry and then I'm going to start with the back. Anyone know a good way to tighten the lug nuts without tearing off too much of the Plasti-Dip inside? That was my only issue last night.
