Sport Edition F10 with PlastiDip

Hello Everyone,

In case any of our forum members wonder what Sport Edition F10s look like in black, I decided to experiment a bit with my winter set up before mounting them on my rig. I used about 1 can of PlastiDip per wheel, which I found at home depot for about $6 per can. I cleaned the wheels thoroughly prior to spraying them. The first coat was very light with the goal of having about 50% transparency. Once I did coats 2-4, I sprayed about 6-10 inches away. each coat took about 30min to dry. I laid down a tarp which definitely is a must otherwise you'll for sure get over spray on the the floor/ground. Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help any way possible. It's a very easy process and this comes from someone who is not very hands on with cars.
