Plastidipped HFP wheels

Lately I have been painting random stuff with Plasti-dip and following the forums on dipyourcar.com. After seeing all the examples of this stuff on wheels and full cars, I decided to try it on my SI's HFP wheels. After cleaning the wheels I applied 5 coats of matte black, then masked off all but one spoke and sprayed on some Dupli-color Galaxy Gray Metallic paint w/clear coat over the dip. I then painted the lug nuts in the galaxy gray as well. The wheels turned out much better than I expected. Just wanted to post pictures of how the wheels came out if anyone was skeptical on Plasti-dip. This stuff is amazing.

I got the rear roof spoiler from a local shop. The spoiler is made by some company 'HIC'. I just found a link of the spoiler on Ebay HIC 06 11 8th Civic FG2 Coupe Rear Roof Window Visor Rain Shadow Deflect Spoiler | eBay.

Oh, and I primed, painted, and clear coated it since these pics were taken. It came out really nice color-matched.
