Thinking about plasti-dipping my TRD rims....should I leave the center cap silver and red or dip it also? Any suggestions on application?

I say dip it all....

For application, I like to stick the can of Plasti-dip in a bucket of hot water for 10 minutes or so prior to using.  This makes it spray much finer, and eliminates clumping.

I say dont waist your time pasti-dipping them.  Just go ahead and paint them rustoleum satin black.  You are never going to take of the plastidip, so just paint them.

I plasti-dipped mine just because I wasn't sure if I was going to leave them black or not. I like them black so I will eventually go back and paint them. Every time I wash I am worried that it will start peeling off.

Couldn't agree more!  The black wheels look AWESOME, but you gotta black out the other parts to match!

But don't get me wrong... your rig looks great like this!  Good work on those wheels!  You should take a red paint pen to the "TRD" in the center caps!

I thought of doing that....or white to offset the color of the FJ and the white letters...do they make paint pens?

They do make paint pens. Just not sure which would be good for plastidip. Some have fat felt tips that would be messy while other have the large ball-point tip that may rip the plastidip...

Could even use silver if you cannot find white as silver is a popular paint pen color and tends to cover really well.

I wouldnt worry much about it though, they look really nice all black.

Yeah paint pens might screw up a little bit on the plastidip... but you know what would work?  Nail polish.  Sounds girly, but that stuff has a ton of uses!  Check out gun forums if you don't believe me!

Worth a shot!  If it wears off, just repaint!  Orrrrrr you could paint with the polish, then put a clear coat of plastidip over that!

Pants..  all the time.  Oh Mirrors and handles... yes!  The handles are so easy you won't believe it.  I can walk you through it faster than typing it.  Give me a call sometime.  My number hasn't changed.
