  1. Find a well ventilated spot to work in and cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect them from overspray.
  2. Cover the wheel of your car with a plastic garbage bag. Weave the garbage bag in between each of the spokes to avoid overspray.
  3. Use painter’s tape to cover each of the bolts on the rim and place index cards in between the tires and the wheel rim to protect it from overspray.
  4. Apply Peel Coat to the surface. Hold the paint can 20-30cm from the surface. Press the spray button and begin lightly covering the surface in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke.
  5. The first coat should be applied very light, with 50% coverage. That means that you can still see about half of the rim through your first coat of paint.
  6. Apply 5-6 light coats, waiting 5 minutes between each coat. The more coats applied the easier the coating is to remove later.
  7. Repeat the steps for the remaining three wheel rims.
  8. For easiest removal, peel off coating within 3 months of application.
  9. Remove the painter’s tape from the surface of the car while the final coat is still wet.
  10. Once you’re finished you can enjoy your newly customised car. When it’s time for a new colour, simply peel away, clean and recoat.
