    My Wife's V

    Here is the finished product of my wife's V mods. She had this all done herself. There is not a drop of Plastic dip on this car. She had all the chrome professionally sanded and painted.

    She had the body shop remove the tires and wheels and she took the wheels to a powder coater and had them done. Then there is some tint on the windows.

    This car gets lots of looks. I ran it at the street legal drags the other night and I couldn't believe how many camera flashes were going off in my face.

    Nice looking car!
    How much was the powder coating for your wheels? I am debating between powder coating and buying a set of satin black set.
    TIA,
    George

    The wheels are a perfect match for the paint on the chrome. She said it cost $100 per wheel. The car came with the silver painted wheels, not the chrome type.

    Let me know when it chips. Plasti-dip won't. I find it funny the complaints of Plasti-dip. It's cheap. It works. Wanna spend money? And then spend it again later when the paint chips? Go nuts...

    Slow your roll, Captain Corpuscle. Paint on metal as opposed to paint on plastic are two different things.

    Also, it's why I'd clearbra any car, anyways.
