    Welcome from Ohio.

    Plasti-dipping. Pretty easy to apply.

    Anything you want to black out.

    Around 6-7 buck a can...

    id just paint the rims instead. Its pretty easy and for around 12 bucks you can get a can of duplicolor rim paint and clear coat and that'll be enough for all 4 rims. I am hoping to do a write up on how to do as i did it to my rims, not black but silver. Big improvement over the beat up look lol There are tons of write ups on the web tho on how to do that

    BHLM, Black badges and just keep it clean. Waxing it makes a huge difference.

    Sorry about the late response. I just got your post.

    I just did my valance recently and maybe the badges and rear bumper in the future.

    It looks like you already got your answer on the wheels.

    Good luck with it...;)
