    Looks nice!

    When you do the rims do you take them off the vehicle or do you put the bags behind the rim as some internet videos have done?

    It all depends on the car. So far the two trucks rims I've done I left them on and used the bags. I've taken every car rim I've done off. I also removed them from SUV's depending on the size.

    If they are "normal" sized, 19" or less then 4 cans will be plenty.

    Mine are 16". I was originally thinking 2, but would that not be thick enough?

    It could have been done easily with just over three but I used four just for the peel-ability.

    Yea, two of any color really wont be think enough. They might not even cover all the wheels enough to look solid enough. You can get away with 3 cans of black, gunmetal, anthracite and dark colors maybe but I'd always rather have extra then not enough.

    As long as it is applied properly you shouldn't have any issues.

    The dirt will come off easily. Wash it with Simple Green and water. They also sell Brake Dust Pro on DYC.com. it might be $20/bottle but it works awesome.

    So, I ordered 4 cans of anthracite and 2 cans of glossifier for my rig. I was hoping to do the wheels, front grill and side badges. Do you think I need another can? Also, does the glossifier add any thickness to the dip for peel-ability? ( I was hoping to do 3 coats of color and 2 coats of glossifier, but I don't know how that will hold up) Thanks, in advance for the help!

    If I was you I would head to Home Depot or Lowes and get 3-4 cans of black. Use the black as a base coat(2 coats) to save Anthracite. The gloss will help with peelability a bit but nothing huge.

    So I would do 2 coats of black, 2-3 of Anthracite and 2-3 of gloss.

    nah it shouldn't affect the Anthracite. I believe Fonzie(DYC) did a video about it. I think the R8 go Anthracite over matte black.

    Yeah, I got an email yesterday that updated the shipper... BUT, when follow the link, I'm still not getting any transit information. So, it looks like DYC updated the shipping information, but the product hasn't actually shipped yet.

    Is that what you're seeing on your end as well?

    They actually generated a whole new shipping label, sent a new email and following the new link it is enroute from Deerfield Beach to me. I will get on Thursday, looks like I better strip the plastic off my bumper now.

    Checking my original shipped email, that link still says that the label was produced on June 26 but hasn't been updated since with ANY info.

    So to answer your question, I have two different tracking numbers through UPS. One is active and enroute. The other hasn't been updated since two weeks ago. My guess is they just slapped a new label over the old and completed my order. That's a real bitch yours doesn't show yet

    Have you seen the Harley-Davidsons with the "denim" or matte finishes? They look nice until you get a scratch, a dent, a boot scuff, etc. Let me throw a link to you about the matte finish from H-D. There are suggesting a matte finish film.

    Be sure to paint your calipers/brake drums while your wheel is off.
