Plastidip Kidney?

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if anyone plastidipped their kidneys. I'm wondering I I should just pay the 70 to get matte black kidneys or just plastidip my kidneys.

Plastidip the kidneys?

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if anyone plastidipped their kidneys. I'm wondering I I should just pay the 70 from **********s to get matte black kidneys or just plastidip my kidneys.
Does anyone use plastidip here as well?
I currently have plastidipped 17" oem rims that I'm going to replace with vmr soon. And also I plastidipped my numbers

Might as well save the money and plasti dip them since you have experience with it. My winter wheels are blaze blue and have held up outstandingly well, to the point where it convinced me to do my entire car.

I haven't done it yet, planning on it once it gets warmer here in NY. Hoping to be one of the first members to do it haha. I have pictures of the winter wheels if you want.

I plastidipped mine flat black. Turned out great. Didn't really like the glossyness of shadow line from BMW.

I dipped my grills as well. Super easy to do and turned out great. I went a littler heavier on the coats than I normally would and they've held up nicely.

Do it. Aerosol can, I did around 8 or so coats. I used half a can or so. Holds up great, better and much easier than painting.

I plastidipped mine. Looks the same as spending the $80 if you spend the time to do it properly.

Pop them out, it's easier to get all the angles that way. I did 3, but I'd go with 4 just in case.
