Plasti-dipped the rims, looks sweet and cheep

I plasti dipped the rims, and also the chrome trim piece that was below the windows, for 6 bucks a can you cant beat it, and if you dont like it , you can just peal it off. I still need to do alittle touch up on some of it.

Black PlastiDipped stock WHEELS...cool. Now your calipers stick out as one of the only silver things on your car. You should paint them, but not with PlastiDip lol.

Has anyone used it on calipers?

YellowJellyBean wasnt being coy when he suggested not to use them on calipers lol. Plasti-dip has a temperature rating up to 312*F. Brakes calipers can see temps above 400*F (much higher if you track them), so use a high temp paint for those unless you want to find out what burnt plastidip smells/looks like

Duplicolor makes a caliper paint kit that has held up for years on my calipers, just find a better brush than what theirs comes with
