    Is there any particular prep to be done on the wheels before there are dipped, other than ultra clean?

    Mine too. I have a full box of Plastidip just waiting to go but the only time I've had a good day to dip anything was after a late, heavy night on the booze so I managed to sleep through the sunshine

    Just clean it but if you have flaking paint or curb damage it is recommended to get that repaired before.
    You can dip over the top of it if you want but it will show through.

    They do a gloss over coat.
    spray the black and then coat it in gloss.

    Looks good, but I'd love to see it with the doors open.

    I love the blue patch on the garage floor, with four wheel marks left unpainted!

    That s4 does look great though. And the weather is about THE only thing that could ever convince me to move to the good old US of A. I'm currently living the dream in west yorkshire!

    Hmm, I dunno - that blue s4 looks like my anti-static mat to me, or like it's been wrapped using blue latex gloves.

    Each to their own but matt finishes are not really to my personal taste...sometimes it works, but for me it usually doesn't. And definitely not in proctologists latex-blue! Looks like it needs a daub of KY jelly!

    Don't eat plasti dip.
    It don't taste very nice and I doubt very much it will be any good for me.

    I was carrying some stuff out to the shed and thought it be a good idea to put a dip cover item in my mouth and carry it out.

    Not the best idea I ever had.

    My Adventures in Plasti Dip

    Plasti-dip Uk got stock of black in a couple of weeks ago and it was sold out in hours.

    Thankfully I got myself 2 cans.

    That's exactly what I did.

    Called them up to get a timescale and then ordered as normal. Took about a week to arrive.
