So this weekend I determined myself to plasti dip my wheels and paint the calipers since the wheels I wanted were backordered and who knows when I will be able to get them. I have never done plastidip but for a first timer I think it was not too bad. The only problem is that after it dried up it started getting patches where it looked to be melting. I did this outside and it was pretty much boiling...could that have been it or maybe my technique wasn't the best? I tried to do thin coats but the eventual over-spray did happen. Anyways I am leaving them on for a while cause I think it looks good overall but if the patches start to annoy me I'll just take it off. Tell me what you guys think.

Warm water and a cloth...nothing crazy...should I have used a special cleaner?
They recommend some pretty heavy duty cleaning before dipping wheels on the dipyourcar forums

Did you plastidip (spray) the capillars? They look good

Peel it off and then clean it with denatured alchahol after a mild soap/water combo. This should ensure a good bond between the rim and the PD. Or you can always just get the pre-dip from Dipyourcar.com
