    Default Plasti dip?

    So I want new wheels but I dont have the money at the moment. Im thinking about plasti dipping my santa monicas but not sure how it will look. The only color I have seen these done is in black. Dont like them at all. I was thinking white or maybe something in the brown family? What do you guys think?

    I've seen something similar to those done in black but if.you go with plasti dip the only two colors in.rattle cans are black and white in.which case you have to.order white because most stores don't stock it... That is around me

    All the hardware stores around me have white in stock. And there are actually quite a few different color options to choose from. Dipyourcar.com has all the colors but they are higher priced and they charge a ton to ship. So it's only worth it for big orders. Do white if your going to do anything.

    Check out plasti dips manufacture website. They have everything listed you will need to know. And yea it peels off pretty easy and naphtha thinner takes it right off. I did my wheels in white and it's near impossible to keep clean. That's my issue with white plasti dip. That's why I'm getting them powder coated.

    The white looks really good. They would be hard to keep clean though like you said..
