    Cool FR-S white/red body plasti-dip

    Just spent the weekend plasti-dipping my rims and emblem. Took a couple tries with the emblem (and might need a couple more) but I think I've mastered the process. 4 layers for everything.

    Tell me what you guys think. I don't want to do the entire wheel but I could use some tips to make it look better.

    It looks unique but I personally am not a fan of the red badges. But I'm not a fan of blacked out badges that much either.

    I think the wheels look great, I like the new trend for more color and character in the wheels.

    Don't know how much thickness or how tough that coating is but are you going to be able to get a lug wrench over the nuts when you need to pull a tire?

    Thanks you guys! I really like the plasti-dip coloring but the accents are silly IMO. The lug wrench is no big deal since you can just peel the plasti-dip off if you need to take it off. I could do it myself before taking it to the dealership but I'd rather them just do it...

    Nice work! Just try not to plasti dip your cars body because the sun can cause it to heat up and stick to your paint... It can be a real pain peeling it off if you don't have a thick coating... Overal lovin the red wheels!
