    how did you do the calipers..i was curious bout doing mine. cuz the red caliper paint fades too fast. did you just tear the caliper down to nothing, meaning popping all seals and everything out of them, powder, bake and re assemble or what?

    was thinking about doing mine with the blue used on the 99 anniv. t/a and put it on my c6 zo6 wheels on a white car. not sure if it will look good or not.

    whatever you do DONT paint wheels!

    it fades, chips, looks like hell after a while. do it the right way and get someone to powdercoat them.

    is it difficult to master? And is it something that the everyday joe can learn and do in his home?

    its really not that complicated, the hardest part is learning how to prep parts correctly and temperatures/bake times

    I somehow missed this thread before. Dude-those wheels are very cool looking. How did you achieve the red stripe? I really like how you left the very outer edge black then came in a little before you put the red stripe-sweet. Now come over here and polish my helmet!

    thanks mang....they were a PITA and ill never do another set that I have to strip.


    anyhow, the pinstripe is hand laid by me and the maxwhacks, it was a bitch also, but really sets the wheelz off.

    i dont offer helmet polishing services but, ill give you maxwhacks' number
