    Has anyone else here used Plasti Dip on their cars? I used to have my emblems dipped until I bought new ones, but I'm currently contemplating dipping my wheels.

    Yea, it's a great product. It sprays a bit different than paint though, so that takes a little getting used to, fortunately it peels off so that's not a big deal.

    I did the wheels on my Camaro a couple years ago, and it turned out great.
    Best part, when I change my mind I can just peel it off.

    There is only one rule you must follow daniel-san .... PEEL YOUR TAPE BEFORE PLASTIDIP DRYS OR IT WILL STICK TO THE TAPE AND PULL UP WHEN YOU REMOVE YOUR BORDERS. Sorry wanted to stress the importance of this little fact no one will tell you. It took three tries on my first rim to get it down right. Hope you have an even steady hand, that is the best for good coverage. Hope it works out have fun.

    That was a tip I found out about when researching it after @Wildlyfe told me about it. It will run your day if you forget this one important step.

    I'm going to do the emblems on the 4Runner, getting tired of the chrome letters. I think black would look much better.
