Got back from 10 day trip to Ponta - the rims with the 'dip' help up extremely well with no chips or peeling after some pretty hefty work in the sand dunes getting to Ponta.
the sand was excessively dry on day of arrival and had some tight moments but patrollie pulled through while lesser veicles with small trailers were getting stuck.
Rims still looking as good as day I did the job! :thumbup:

Hi Chris, I just want to know how the plastidip on your mags are holding up and if you can also tell me if they clean well. I am thinking of doing this to my newly acuired 17inch patrol mags. Your input will be much apreciated.

I used this to cover up the fake wood in the X5. I did it properly and it lasted about 2 years before it came unsightly in the high wear areas. Not sure if that is acceptable.

Thats sound very exceptible thanx. my other concern is if you clean it is it black again or does it get that tainted dust colour after a while.
