I kinda want the red GT500 stripes, so Plasti-dip would help me test it out and see if I actually want them.

I'll have to pick some up and play around with it. The GT500 stripes have a black pinstripe around the red main one, so I figure I could probably lay down a black base coat then spray red with maybe 1/4" black on either side uncovered.

Mine seem good so far after about 2 weeks and its been through some rain.

That would probably work.

Yup, Im leaning towards doing the entire rim in plastidip, I think It'll come out fantastic.

My emblems are still holding up okay. They are fading to a very gray shade of black over time, prolly cause I could have put more coats on.

My side markers though are starting to show silver through. So I'll prolly end up having to re-do them. No biggie, they were a snap to do.

However for wheels I'm a bit more concerned with road nonsense getting scratches/scrapes that under rotation will eventually start peeling off sections.

I wonder if you were to take the plastidip, put it on. Then apply a clear coat of an epoxy or resin of some sort, instead of clear plastidip to give it a more resistant surface... how that would hold up, if the two would bond?

Plastidip actually sells gloss for wheels.

Like Brian said, they have a glossifier made just for plasti dip. If you use a regular clear coat, it would somewhat work but cause the plasti dip to harden. This makes it a lot harder to take the plasti dip off if you want to. It's still possible to take it off, but much more of a PITA.
