So the black is plastidip and the gold is a spray on metallic paint? Looks pretty good, reminds me of the Subaru wheels that I see around my parts. Looking forward to pics!

The gold is also a plastidip product. It's made to go over the black to give you the gold finish. It peels off just like regular ol black plastidip.

Looks way better than I would've imagined!
Last week I plastidipped my CTS-Vs black, with two coats of glossifier on top. Happy with the results.
