i love plasti dip. but be sure to make a lot of coats. if you don't, it gets harder to peel especially if left on for a very long time. i ran into that issue with 2 out of my 4 rims because i was running low. i litterally had to powerwash and use a
rag with a buffing compound and rub for hours. anyway looks good!

The over spray was a pain but ended up using optimum no rinse and a mf towel. I have 4 coats black 2 glossifier I hope that's enough?

Looks good! I did my wheels three years ago and they still look perfect! I am dreading the time coming up when I will have to replace the tires though...

I had th same problem when I dipped the chrome on my rear bumper. In certain places the chrome trim abuts the bumper. If you're careful, you can mask right up to the bumper in the places that are problematic, and then peel it off as soon as you're finished spraying the last coat. I did that and it seems to work. It's just annoying and you just have to be careful to not let the tape get into the wet dip.

you should be okay. making not enough coats is basically like that over spray. it's a pain to remove.

I love it! It looks great! I just did my wheels this weekend and I have really been considering doing the grille and trim. Thanks for the pics- It's good to see that yours turned out so well.
