Someone had to do it!

Red plastidip on pegs.

Pretty easy to put on the wheels, cleaned up the rims with soap and scrubbed any dirt and brake dust off. Then applied about 6 coats of dip and let them dry over night before putting them on the car.

I was also quite hesitant, but I like it. Good job. I agree on the mirror caps. Black out your headlight lenses and you're in a special place.

Pretty sick looking - Not my cup of tea - but to each his own.

The best part is if you want it off - just peal it.

Looks really cool! I thougt of the idea to do my winterpegs red or yellow with plasti-dip. Now i know how it looks, i guess it´s an eyecatcher!

Way to be an individual! It being plasti dip makes it a very low risk operation so hey why not? They are coming out with some intense colors on that site (started out very basic). I'm not saying it looks bad, but with a more aggressive stance I think you could actually pull it off.

Damn I know what I'm doing when I have free time... I'm getting tired of the black plastidip. And if I don't like the red, I'll just peel it off. :)

Mirror caps need to be dipped too IMO.

I've seen worse but you need to finish it off.
Red on the grill surround, maybe the tip of the rear spoiler and mirrors, etc

I agree with JRL - if the Porsche only had red wheels with no decals and red trim, it wouldn't look good. Add some of those checkered decals, mirrors, etc :)

Doesn't look bad. Like JRL said you need to finish it off with more detail matching the wheels. And more of a aggressive stance. Springs, Spacers etc..
