its really easy mate i have never used spray can in my life this stuff does most of the work just start by using playing cards or similer like this

then start by going round the outside of the rim then work you way over the spokes you wanna get like 50%-60% covereage on the first coat then on the second and thrid you wanna cover the bits you missed on the first i did 7 coats i would just say by a tin and have a play it completly comes off so no worries about ruining your alloys.

Good idea , i might just do that , i'm rubbish at spraying , but worth a try as you can't damage anything with the plasti dip

having used the stuff it depends on high wear areas it needs touched up a lot youtube never tells the whole truth its a good product but the u.s doesnt have the crap on the roads we have its great to use during the winter to protect the alloys i use it for protection under the wheel arches it lasts a good while

Oh my, is it possible to fall madly in love with a car? Looks fantastic you know. Really nice.
Id love to do this myself but i don't think id be at all good, did you just spray over the chrome bonnet strip too, no sanding down?
