just plastidip, wanted to see how all the chrome trim, grilles, and wheels look blacked out.

not sure if I want to do gloss powdercoating on the wheels so doing this first was nice for cheap. I think I like the contrast of matte/flat on the wheels against the gloss paint (like on my TBSS)

dig the murdered look, but the plastidip on the trim was tough and easily got boogered up when peeling the tape off in a couple spots. hard to do multiple coats without drying and sticking to the paint. cleaned up the calipers while wheels were off too. going to pull wheels and do one more coat, will prob wax the calipers then too to help with the grime buildup.

Looks good.

I've always been a fan of the yellow calipers.

Black Diamond or Raven? I thought about trading my Corvette for an M6 Black Diamond wagon but they wanted way too much for it and made the worst offer I'd had on my car so I didn't buy it.

Well rounded collection of vehicles!!! The V-wagon looks great but would do the wheels gloss black.

I like the matte black, contrasts nice against all the gloss.
