So the Plastidip came off the wheels, now I'm just trying to find a decent wheel shop that can remove chrome so I can paint them.
This weekend I got her polished up. The clear is like freaking diamonds. I don't have a rotary, and I'm pretty sure that's what I would have needed to get rid of ALL the scratches. I was at least able to make a pretty significant improvement.

Two weekends ago I painted the brake calipers. I've got M decals on the way.
