Im just coming around to do this but I painted my hubcaps black in tell I get new rims. I did this about 4 months ago and they held up really well. so im making a thread to show everyone.

1 take the hubcap off the car and turn it around to see the other side. look for the 2 pins and pust them together to release the gold chevy sign. 2 take the plastic cover bolt of the hubcap by pushing them. 3. Grab the paint and paint really easy.

Plastidip needs to be sprayed on thick. Otherwise it won't peel off. Not too thick to cause runs but definetly need multiple layers. They look good though...for hubcaps :clap:

It wasn't plastidip. It was rustoleum for plastic.

So it is :uhh:
I didn't open the picture lol. Guess I should've known since plastidip is a blue can. Thought Rustoleum made their own version though.
