    ok... like i said,,, i thought the car would look good with the red lip on the black rims..
    i was bored and i tried it and see how it would look,, i think it looks good imo.. but the job i did is horrible,, so i took some pics.,. and ill take them off tomorrow and go with some one who knows how to put ti on and get it done right,,
    i know the job i did wasnt the best,, not everything i do always looks good lol...
    let me know your opinion thanks..

    They came out very nice. What steps did u take in painting your wheels?? Did u use fine sand paper then primer or just wet sand then paint?? How many coats?? Also did u take them off or just use index cards to seal off the tire?? I'm going to be painting my wheels black when I get back home.

    thanks man

    the prep was simple but it worked out good..
    i sand it with a 220 paper sand, i sand it down till some of the scratches were gone, i didnt use primer, i would use it only if it has deep scratches on them,
    once is all sand down nice and clean, apply 3-4 coats of paint, do one and wait 5-10 min for the other one,
    i like how the flat black looks, so i didnt apply any clear coat on them to make it look a little shiny, but if you put the clear coat on them you have to do the wet sanding,
    it took me about 3 hours to get in done, i painted the inside of the rims to. since im thinking to put some lettering on the inside,
    dont worry if some paint gets on the tires at the end you can remove the paint with a sponge or steel wool..
    i used 2 bottles of spray paint, i spent like $10 dollars on everiyhing lol

    if you got more questions let me knw..

    you want to paint them flat black or gloss black?

    I liked it better polished. You did a good job and the calipers look great. With dark rims and black paint your going to have to clean and blacken the meats or it will ruin the look your after.

    I like the look of polished rims best. Better even than chrome (but a drag to keep looking sharp). I work as a machinist and I like the natural look of metals but its your ride. What you like is best no matter what the rest of the pack looks for. The fact that you tried something different and did it yourself is what custom is all about. Can't wait to see what ya do next.

    thanks man..
    i like the way it looks but i hope some time in the future when im done with bolt ons, and some body work, ill be getting new polish rims. but it still kinda far from now,
    i wanted to change the look a bit just to see how it would look, and u knw to try something new..

    what i have coming up for it,
    paint the front end,
    cme exhaust
    lower it with stranos, i just need the new shocks for that,
    and do some detail on the paint,

    after that the list is very long..lol
