I hope that the wheel came off easily and with no issues with the info that I sent. I am interested in finding out more info on the water transfer product that you used as I have not investigated this before. Please post up where you got it and how you did it.
Catch me if you can...........

Thanks for the video. I didn't know you could print your own design. I got a kit from mydipkit.com. It is really easy to do, there are a bunch of videos on Youtube that show how easy it is. I did clear coat the pieces around the shifter and the radio, but decided not to clear coat the steering wheel. No reason really, just in a rush to get it done and put back together. I did a few pieces under the hood also, without clear coating them and they have been holding up really well.
I have a few ideas under the hood, my only concern was the heat effecting the decal. I see you're in Northern FL. That was going to be my second concern about the ambient heat on top of the engine bay heat down where in Central Florida.
I may have to give it a shot on a few small pieces to see how this turns out.
overwrkd - That looks great. I had not heard of where you purchased your kit from before so I just spent a bit of time on there. How much transfer paper (print) did you buy to do all those pieces, both interior and engine bay????
Does any one know if you can get this stuff off and how if you decide to change out later on?
Heat doesn't seem to affect this stuff. Other than the steering wheel, the interior pieces were done about 3 months ago and the engine about 3 months.
The piece of film that came with the dip kit was enough to do all the inside and engine parts, plus a few video game controllers for my son and still have enough left to redo the strut caps (thinking of changing them to purple) and may the shift plate.
If you want to change the color or design later, I would say, just paint over what you have and re-dip it.
Thanks for the info. What kit did you purchase as they have 3 available?
Also, this may sound a bit "dumb" but I have to ask - you painted the parts white first and then did the dipping. So does this mean that the transfer paper/print is actually opaque???? Is this the way that all transfer paper/prints work in that the base color will show through?
