    Actually really like it. Just did three real light, real even coats of the black. Then three pretty heavy coats of gloss.

    If they started to peel it was most likely due to not properly cleaning the wheel prior to application. It's actually quite the opposite, the more coats the better as long as they are applied correctly under the proper conditions. If I were you I would remove your current coats and give the wheels a nice thorough cleaning and reapply and you should have better luck. I've had mine done for over two months now and they look the same as the day I dipped them and some people report years of issue free dipped items. Good luck.

    Supply and demand - if they're having to print special labels for a much smaller market, that market has to eat the cost of the special labels (which doesn't just include the printing, but also the process of separately applying them, separately boxing them, etc.).

    When are Canadians going to realize that France sucks and they should be trying to distance themselves from all things French, anyway?

    That came out great! From the pic it looks like the white is a very good match.

    I've been waiting for a comparison between the new metallic gray PD and MGM, wondering whether I'd be able to pull of doing my rear bumper with it.

    I love it! Too bad it's a one way ticket to being pulled over where I come from. Either way, that looks awesome.

    Yeah! I am not sure how to respond to that.

    Smile and nod... :thumbsup:

    What I want to know is why Canadians still have a separate, higher price on books when the exchange rate is pretty much 1:1 now.

    It's been like that for a long time now. They had done a news story a few years ago about it. I figured that it was just a bunch of excuses to why they were different.

    I cleaned them up pretty good, being in houston doesn't help for drying though...

    It's really only peeling where the rubber and rim meets by the weights but that's because I pulled some off when removing the overspray from the tire.

    I couldn't get my hands on some gloss derp so i tried automotive gloss... wouldn't recommend it on top of the final coat, it balled up in some areas on the the derp

    Will do! It's not completely derp, there were parts of the liner that were thin and I could see paint through it so I sprayed those parts. What's nice is that when it dries it seems to shrink a little and it actually matched itself to the texture. I experimented and made a huge puddle of derp on one chunk that was missing. Figured I'd need to peel it off around it to make it look good but it actually shrank THAT much to where it's flush.

    Well guys, in less than 3 hours today I manged to paint all 4 of my wheels... About 2 hours and 55 minutes were spent prepping and masking but it was well worth it! Thank you all who answered my questions earlier this week, it made all the difference today (especially using the index cards!) :cool:

    Anybody have an issue with mud sticking to the derp? Washed the truck the other day after derpin' and some muddin' and the dirt just clings to the derp. Suggestions?

    ^Looks good, I've been collecting some PD to do my sport wheels soon.

    I'm thinking of throwing some glossier on top, did you?
