My black plasti dip has arrived. Though the orange has grown on me I still think she'd look more bad ass with black wheels.

Now I'm thinking maybe a cool design? Maybe simple like split it down the middle, half black half orange. What do you guys think?

Any photoshop gurus here who could test some options?

Orange and white looks better, think Duke 1290 prototype rims with the KTM Racing written on them. At the end of the day each to their own cause its the owner that sits for hours looking at their shed mural ;)

That would be cool. I wish I knew photoshop so i can put together some of my ideas but im sure you can come up with something. Plasti dip is cheap. Just experiment yourself, it's easy to remove it, it's VERY forgiving unlike real paint.

I like the idea of having one spoke orange better than half and half. I think the Duke would look good either way. You'l have to experiment with it and bring us back some photos.

do you prime your rims with primer ? and do you buy the glossifier too ?

if you have done your .. i'm happy that you can give some pointer ...

Haven't done mine yet I bought 3 cans. Hope it's enough. I will do it sometime next two weeks. I think I will go full black then buy the orange perimeter rim sticker from ebay.

I dont think powder coating is cheaper at all... plus like Dusty said if he dont like it, it peels off, and if he does like it he can swap colours on a whim ;)

the glossifier makes a differene

depends if you like the matte look
I have seen the glossifiers on display but haven't seen any results yet. And they even have metallic coat too. This plasti dip thing is really blowing up.
