Had my V one week today and had some time to complete my first of probably too many mods. It was super easy too black out grill with a can of
Plasti-dip. Took some time to tape it and all went smooth. Next will be intake or powder coating rims.
Holy cripes that is nice. How does it work? I've heard of the "plasti-dip" stuff before, but applications I used it for you actually dip piece into solution. I could be thinking of something else, though.
What was the relative price of the amount of plasti dip you needed to use?
Have any of you done it to your wheels? If so did you do just the "spokes" or did you remove from car and do front, back, "sides", whole nine yards? I think I'm gonna do this on my grill, -possibly- on my wheels, and I'm considering my V badges, like poster above.
I bought some today and tape and tried it out on a couple things laying around. Pretty neat stuff but if an edge is compromised, that stuff is coming off for sure.
I have had plasti dip on wheels before not on this car. It does hold up pretty well. I was even able to touch up areas as needed The tires were off and did entire rim then had tires remounted. If I did it again I probably would spend the money on powder coating. More places are powder coating and the price is pretty reasonable IMHO about $125.00 a rim here in jersey. Good luck
I never took the car with wheels done to a car wash. I have taken a car with the grill done through a wash and it was fine.
Plenty of G8 guys have done their wheels and gone through car wash. Wheels came out fine. Issue may be with those "tracks" in the automatic ones, same potential to mar a rim as you normally would. Plastidip holds up great. Have had my grills done on my G8 for years, I DD my car, no nicks scratches or fading in the Plastidip on them.
Everyone not familiar with dip needs to look up dip your car on YouTube or dipyourcar.com. It's mind blowing what they do now with dip. They have pearls and chameleon dip on whole cars and looks amazing for 400 or less.
