plastidip repair

Postby doctahjones » Tue Feb 11, 2014 9:18 pm

welp, after 1.5 years my plastidip'd wheels are finally starting to fail.

here's my original post back from sept '12:

it's starting with one of my wheels but it all are starting to get little cracks in the corners and such.

here's the biggest culprit:

it's peeling from the rim.

so i decided to use a razor and cut off the part that was peeling. it did leave a score mark in the rim (not sure if you can see it in the pic) :/


i then resprayed that area

and tried to cover up another area, but it didn't fare so well

and after a day of driving, the areas i tried to repair are now peeling off. guess i'll need to strip the whole thing and re-dip....or take them all off and powder coat....or just paint them myself...

still can't believe that 1st attempt lasted this long!

i'm surprised the dip lasted that long too.

I bedlined my rims over the summer and they still look great. the bedliner is great. just prep the wheel really well, and spray it on. no primer needed.
