    Do 4 nice and heavy coats on the bumper. I did mine a year ago and its survived a few off road trips and a good bit of road mileage. It does have some areas that are peeling a bit, from being drug on the ground.

    JohnnyWayne, do you think the plast dip will hold up on those wheel? I've been skeptical of it on wheels and have been looking for a place to powder coat them for a reasonable price. Hope they last for you man. They look beautiful and so does the truck.

    I had Plasti Dipped my stock TRD wheels to check what black would look like on my truck. I was surprised at how well it held up for a few months. I ultimately ended up taking the plasti dip off and selling the wheels.

    Cleaning them became a PITA for me as I had lightly coated the inside of the wheel to hide the metal somewhat. Don't do that, or if you do, use plenty of coats as you would on the outside of the wheel. It's easy to remove if it is solid with good multiple coats but, thin...let's just say I made a mess with brake cleaner in the driveway. Never again.

    I just used some today... after welding up a couple gnarly grass spewing cracks in the neighbors lawn mower deck. I didn't have any rattle can paint other than blue, so the black Plasti-dip-derped it right dandy nice. WTH I say, as long as it keeps the rust away.

    So let me get this straight. I have silver fj trail team wheels. (sig pic) So i can plasti dip these then if i don't like it i can just peel it off and it will be good as new? If so how hard is it to peel it off rims?

    Thanks

    Back a couple of pages I think, someone said it can be a pain in the ass if your wheels have a lot of angles and edges, but they sprayed it with WD40 and then it came right off with a pressure washer.

    Debadged, Plasti dipped rear bumper
    I officially got bit by the plasti dip bug yesterday. Today i'm running to the closest hardware store and buying some and hopping on the bandwagon. Wanna do my rear chrome bumper, but I'll probably start with the front hood emblem since it seems easy and I've never done it before.
