Blacked Out Emblems with Plasti Dip
This product is awesome. It's not permanent, so you can mess up as much as you want. It's easy to apply. It's easy to remove. Try it on anything, if you don't like it just peel it off. I blacked out my emblems on my Nissan 370z. It looks really good if you want the "blacked out" look. Keep in mind that I was filming this with one hand and using my other hand to peel off the Plasti Dip, so I apologize for all the grunting and stuff. No homo. Common Answer #1: You will need approximately 3 cans to spray all four wheels using 4 coats on each wheel. Common Answer #2: You can buy Plasti Dip at Home Depot, Lowes, and OSH. Common Answer #3: Yes, it's safe to drive through the car wash and pressure wash over the Plasti Dip, but I wouldn't recommend it. Common Answer #4: It's not necessary to spray the inner wheel wells. I just sprayed the face of the wheel. Common Answer #5: The newspaper masking was to prevent over spray and makes cleaning up easier and quicker. Lastly, I made this video to show the car enthusiast community, who are interested in blacking out their emblems, a much easier way to do so without removing the emblem and painting it or buying a whole new black emblem. Plasti Dip can result in different textures depending on the outside temperature and how close/far you spray. Try it and see what works best for your specific application.

PlastiDip the Wheels
I saw a video of this and read about it on a few forums so I thought I would try it as a cheap alternative to painted or powdercoated wheels. So far I like it, but we will have to see if it holds up.
