I always enjoy seeing what Jody is doing. He doesn't take guff from any part.

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

I'm a cheapskate, remember. There's usually very little money involved :mrgreen: . That said, I'm heading to walmart after work to pick up a can of black plasti-dip. If it looks good, great. If not, I can simply peel it off.

A lot of the guys that I work with use Plast-dip on their entire wheels. It holds up well and as you stated it is easily removed.

Do they have an Augusta Green Plastidip?? You might want to "test" that out, too, you know..........while you're at it.......

OK guys, here it is. Walmart wanted $11 for the plasti-dip so I just went ahead and brushed on some plain old Rustoleum. I gotta say, I like the effect.

Agreed! And in this case, that is certainly not the desired outcome!
