I was checking out LX and ran into this thread.....

http://www.lxforums.com/board/showthread.php?t=259664

It seems to work pretty well and also hold up to the weather and power washers. Also the good news is, if you dont like the way it looks, you can just peel it right off (might take a while though) I think im gonna use this to spray my stocker 18" rims so they look half way decent when I put them on this winter.

Figure id post this up in case anybody here wanted a cheap/effective way to change up their rims.

Yeah give it a shot bro. Just make sure your rims are clean and you mask off the parts you dont want to paint with some of that green painters tape. Take your time and put on light coats.

If it peels right off, it would be a helluva sick practical joke to play on someone by painting their whole car a funky camouflage pattern with it...

That looks easy enough I guess. There was a link to a thread on that link I posted that was for a G35 that some guy couldnt get the plastidip off so he used a power washer on it.......it was a bad idea cuz the power washer was too powerful and tok his paint off with the plastidip, lol.
