Plastidip

Anyone have any experience with this stuff? I've really been thinking hard about painting my rims black on my bike. I can't really afford to have it done professionally, and I don't want to rattle-can them and have it come out looking like crap.

I plastidipped my windscreen. I imagine it would get cut up pretty quickly on rims.

Eh, this forum is practically dead anyway. It's the same 5 people who post and reply to every single thread. At the very least, I gave someone a few minutes of entertainment berating me.

No berating friend. Pls do a plastidip search and you will discover what Jamie was warning you about.

Dietly...LOL...definitely do a search on Plastidip or Plastic Dip or dudeman. If you do, you will see why we laughed at your post. No one is going to berate you.

Well..maybe Michael...but he should be spending time plastidipping his riding sandals.

Powder coating isnt that dear , i called up a local place where i lived, they said $120 include sand blasting for the rims, and the silver guards next to the foot pegs

Seriously, I say it in jest. There is a lot of information on plasti dip on this forum, you just need to search for it. I think there are more than just 5 people but I could probably name 5 that, when combined, have completed or pioneered every mod on this forum and are happy to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with anyone who wants to listen.

Just remember that to powder coat your rims you need to remove/ reinstall the tires, balance the rims and replace the wheel bearings.
