Thinking of dipping the white on the mirrors to match the wheels what do you think? Also the chrome strip at the bottom of the doors maybe?

Need to clean the dip off the wheel but that is the wheel dipped and 2 coats of gloss

Never even gave that a thought... does the glossafier "sp" help to strengthen that at all? Also how does it hold up thought the winter if the snow gonna destroy it should I remove before then and redo in the spring or think it would last? This is my first time using dip on anyting

I didn't put gloss on until I just redid it the other week. I can't help you with the snow answer, I just started doing dip over the summer and it is very fun to do and use. You'll get addicted lol.

I am in love with those wheels. The dip also makes them look 100x better in my opinion.
Thank you I like it so far I'm dipping the side mirrors to match as we speak and I did the back bow Tie to see how it looks worse case I will just peel it off

The red tint you see on the mirror is actually my shirt... its a metallic dip so is slightly reflective and also has 2 coats of gloss like the rims
