The days of plastidip being reserved for matte black color-changes are long gone, and that is largely a result of Fonzie and his company, DipYourCar.com. Fonzie has revolutionized the automotive industry by producing countless videos that teach enthusiasts how to use his dipping products and perfect their technique when changing the color of the car and wheels.

Fonzie recently visited our TUV Verified Vossen Forged Wheel Factory here in Miami, Florida, to show his subscribers everything that goes into the manufacturing of our forged wheels. In the Part 1 of DYC’s How It’s Made series, Fonzie learned about the manufacturing and what differentiates our forged wheels from their cast counterparts. In Part 2 of the DYC’s How It’s Made series, Fonzie brought his freshly dipped 458 to our factory to learn, step-by-step, how his Vossen Forged: VPS-308 wheels are made.

We teamed up with Fonzie to produce the third video in his How It’s Made series, showcasing the VPS-308 wheels and the process of dipping them in DYC’s Burnt Copper Pearl. In the video above, you’ll see the process that Fonzie goes through to apply a pearl finish to his VPs-308 wheels, as well as the final product—an entirely unique Ferrari 458 on Vossen Forged wheels.
