Phil, was the paint bad to start with?

It looks good dont get me wrong but a true matte would look better, probably cost a ton more too lol

btw I enjoyed cleaning up all those rims last week when Vincent got back, they worked out great!

Dipyourcar.com has good deals for cans right now, I will probably buy a kit, about 50$ for 4 cans, and 3 cans of Metalizer .

Tried gun-metal grey plasti-dip(gloss)on friend's rim. It looks good for the rim but i woundn't use it for the body. It definitely has rougher texture than regular lacquer..and you can't polish it
