    This is an example of why I get on people who say Plastidip looks bad. I tell them it is because you can spot a bad job but you'd never spot a great job. And, this job, my friends, is top notch! You can't tell it's not painted/power coated. Well done and it looks great!

    @mchurch - Nice job, your car looks very nice !!! Did you Plastidip with the wheels on or off the car ? I was thinking about trying Dipyourcar's Brass Monkey color.

    How well do these hold up and for how long? Sometimes road grime needs some agitation and other wheel cleaners..I guess plastidip would have accounted for that?

    Looks GREAT!
    Ordering the Anthracite kit now. Did you do glossifier. A lot of folks say anthracite by its self already appears pretty glossy since it’s a metallic finish.

    Mine are still holding up very well. I dipped them March 2019 the same color as the OP. Here’s a recent photo. 53755A13-2E96-43C7-9C39-880ACAB6D7D2.jpeg

    I really like how the Anthracite grey color matches with the MSM paint. Do you have a picture of the wheels before chrome delete by any chance?
