Default DIY plasti dip rims

Hello fellow enthusiasts this is just a DIY on me plasti dipping my rims black. I started bye cleaning my rims very well with chemical guys wheel and tire cleaner.
1. Clean wheels
2. Dry wheels very well
3. Use a mixture of alcohol and water 50-50 to prep wheels
4. Use a bag kitchen cut down the side place it over your rotors and calipers to cover
5. Shake can very well test spray on something to make sure it spraying good
6. Start with a very light spray let dry and keep going stopping 15 minutes in between coats I put a total of 5 coats.

Nice post, wrong section. This is for build threads, this should go in the general discussion of the 2is instead.
