So I Plasti-Dipped my wheels

Hey guys decided to plasti-dip my wheels white today and see how it looked. Came out fairly decent only gonna run it for about a week or so.
Also removed my black roof and all the stickers / plate frame from the rear makes the car so much cleaner IMO anyways on to the pictures (cell phone pics)

Looks good. Would've taped off the rivets personally to add some contrast.

Dom, I am really upset that you got paint on the driveway ! J/K Looking good. Agree with Phi.. add some center caps or something for a bit of contrast.

Gotta love plasti dip.
No like- Pressure wash it off.

It looks better than I thought it would. I like how it appears to have depth. But, I'd prefer that the rivets/bolts were shown in their origional metallic.
