Personally I hate plastidip anywhere on our cars. Just cheapens the aesthetic but if you are committed I understand everyone has to do what they like where appearance is concerned.

This. I've been keeping an eye out on FB marketplace for a black one that someone is selling since they got a fancier one (rs or delta). Usually see them go for $100

When you say plasti dip, I think most people think about the original flat black finish, which looks like garbage on cars and wheels. Plasti Dip and Peel Coat have a lot of different finishes that actually look really good.

Here's my old 2011 Elantra. I don't have a better photo of the wheels how they were when I first got them, but they were brushed metal on the face and flat grey on the inside. Reason for dipping was because they had some imperfections.

Before:
386879


After:
386880


386882


386881


These may not be the best photos to showcase the detail and depth achieved, but they look 1000x times better than regular plasti dip. This was done with Peel Coat anthracite gray and metalizer. I'm going this route atm because I'm planning to upgrade my IC and have already spent too much money on my car and other things 😅 I'll probably get new wheels during the summer or in December if I can wait. Plasti dip may still not be your thing and I respect that 🍻

As far as the spoiler and hatch thing, I would use real paint for that, not plasti dip.
