I just finished the drivers side and decided to snap some iPhone pics before I did the other side. First experience with Plastidip and the 2nd wheel came out better than the 1st. I sprayed a couple coats of semi gloss enamel on top of the dip and the took a scotchbrite pad to even out the surface and take some of the sheen off. From 2ft away and beyond it looks really good. If you get up close, you can see some imperfections.

This is really just a temporary finish and I just wanted to see if what all black would look out. I was beginning to think the whole black wheel fad is overdone and immature, but after seeing it, my inner 12yr old screamed "BADASS!!"

I pronounce it "Beemer" and turn my fog lights on even when it's not foggy.
