thanks bro.. i painted the rims black and after it dried up, i taped it on the center and paint the rims edges with red. i used dupli-color engine enamel because of it's durability... the primer i used is the touch brite. white is the best primer.looks pretty sick bro. Did you paint both the cover and the wheels? I guess you had another car while you were patiently waiting for the paint to dry off? What kind of paint did you use? I'm guessing you did a primer and matte automotive paint?
Solid black yes. The red strip gives it a touch of something I like... I want to paint the part that isn't chrome on the inside blackI for one do not like black rims especially on black cars, I think it's a fad that is going to wear off pretty quick and there is going to be a HOARD of black rims on eBay and kijiji!
Powder coating is the way to go, in my own opinion... but respect for taking the time and doing it yourself, not a bad job at all.
Points for creativity with the red, I personally love my stock wheels, could be just me....
thanks bro!I think you did a very nice job. i like the color and the red stripe looks good and came out great. if i was going to keep my stock wheels i would have also painted them as the cost of powder coating and dismount and mount and balance would have been about $350 in my area $60x4 prep and powder coat and $80 mount and balance. Good Job!
