    Plasti dipped the grill of my 1999 c280

    Hey guys I thought I'd share my experience plasti dipping the grill of my 1999 c280.

    This stuff couldn't be easier to use I simply taped off the silver trim and did about 4 coats with 15 minutes to dry between each coat.

    The grill looks about 100 times better this way (in my opinion anyway :P)

    Anyway enjoy! And sorry for the crappy iphone photography!

    nice mod. I personally like the chrome trim around it. looks good how it is.

    i have similar wheel only in 18 inch and my spokes are straight.

    you can also get them from powerwheelspro. vasille is awesome.
