    Never used it before. Worked very well and was easy.

    The wheel covers are in process.

    I have cut out the blue strips on the hybrid. I did the front emblem as well but pulled up some of the dip on the emblem so I will have to redo that. Photo Mar 16, 1 24 01 PM.jpg

    how easily are the emblems removed? is it adhesive or some sort of rivet or fastener holding them on?

    cant wait to see the wheel covers.

    *EDIT*
    so you left the emblems on the prius?

    yes I left the emblems on. I did not remove them. Although I undertand everything other than the T's are secured with an adhesive. any overspray can easily be wiped away with a microfiber towel. but I suggest masking it off so you dont have to mess with it.

    its been to cold to finish the wheels. they are prob good have 6 coats but I want to do some more.

    how well will plastidip hold on the wheels?

    this stuff seems pretty easy to work with. if i sprayed it on my wheels i wouldnt want it peeling off until i was ready to peel it off.

    it pretty much wont peel off until you want it to. especially if you put it on right. make sure you do enough coats.

    Emblems pop right off. Use a credit card slide under the right side of the rear chrome piece, and push inward. It will release the clip and you can pop it out. For the front, the upper radiator shroud must be removed, and you reach your had into the TINY space and unclip the chrome part, and push out.

    it comes off the background & adheres to the letters/emblem.
