Ex-t
After seeing endless plastidip photos on the forum, I decided to plasti dip all of the chrome on my civic! I must say, for the first time plasti dipping, it turnt out pretty well! I haven't seen much of the EX-L 16" aluminum-alloy rims being plasti dipped, so here's another! :thumbsup:

I just used 1 can of black plasti dip for the rims. I still had some leftover, but each rim got 5 coats. And yes, i'm from Winnipeg!

Nice job, very stealthy, but comes off monochromatic to my eyes. In my opinion you need a little contrast to really make it work. I would suggest all the Honda logos remain chrome, including the wheel centers and lug nuts. These chrome bits will make the black look blacker.

As to the durability of the finish of Plastidip, I can report that I've had some chrome grill parts dipped on my car for over 6 months and they still look fresh--satin finish, not matte--withstands regular washes and have not chipped or peeled one bit. Great product.
