    Not ideal as it was my first time plastisipping anything but I am more than happy with result. Took me whole day today to get it done.
    I was always a bit unsure of gold and silver... looks good tho to be honest!
    What's it like in person?
    What's your paint code? 01G?

    I've the same wheels, was thinking of changing them, now I'm in two minds lol

    Hi Eoin
    Not sure about paint code, will have to check it on plate. Will let you know.
    Iv seen gold on silver on sedan and was not too impressed, but as always, all depends on specific color and other factors. I think it looks good as back section is tinted, have roof rails etc. that gold come up nicely, was not expecting it to be SO gold. From factory it is gold matt, but I used clear coat on top of it and it is shining a bit after all.
    Happy with final result.
    Hold my beer. 'll show you how to do it :-D

    Changes it up nicely and it’s easy to go back to original so it’s a win win

    Thanks for kind words.
    Looks great. Not much use to you now but for anyone else thinking of doing same and has a similar issue: when the last coat of plastidip goes on, put the wheel on the car and tighten the nuts and it will "cut" the plastidip flush and it won't peel. Plastidip is very versatile for cutting and shaping while the last coat is pliable.
