Beautiful. I have the identical rav to you and it makes me want to dip mine even more. How long did it take start to finish. Thinking of doing mine bronze just to add a slight bit of contrast to mine but not too much. Would do it this color as well though.

Looks nice! I've been thinking of refinishing the wheels in satin black.

To danbob, it took about an hour and a half if you do it with the wheels still on the rav4, all you gotta do is thoroughly clean the rims, use garbage bags or something to cover the rotors and calipers and then just hit the rims with the plastidip. I gave each rim 4 coats with 10-15mins drying time in between, and then one coat of the metalizier from plastidip to give it the satin/shimmiering - like finish.

I also used plastidip to smoke out the tail lights, it gives it a matte finish and I personally like it, plus its cheap.

The outcome of the rims wasn't what I wanted, but it looked nice anyway. I was actually trying to get a gunmetal-like color as I watched a video on YouTube of a rim being plastidipped gunmetal and they said to use black but it was actually supposed to be gray and I got this as my outcome. Not bad though
