50/50 wheels

my first attempt to use plasti dip. easy stuff to work with, and the final product didnt come out to bad. i put on 8 coats of black and two gloss. i'm doing the front wheel tomorrow and will update with a complete photo. i'm hopping that they will at least last until the Austin Halloween ride.

I did the orange and white for the upcoming Austin trip this weekend. The black did hold up better then i expected, but this white is just going to attract dirt. I dont think the white its going to last longer then this trip.
