Looks great! Did you sand and prep everything?
Thanks for the advice Sal. I'll take it under consideration.i dont get this color Nish! That blue over silver combo does not match well imo. paint your lips the same color as the wheels.
Car was dirty. I hate you both. Car forums are for boosting peoples ego dammit >.<!i really like that colour and you did a fantastic job but...
I'm gonna have to agree with the sal man...
maybe toss some tireshine on that beotch!
I completely stripped the wheel of the OEM clear coat and paint, sanded the machined surfaces of the face, then cleaned with degreaser like three times before starting to paint.Looks great! Did you sand and prep everything?
Your right, it's not the same blue. This wasn't meant to be a magic formula, rather a solution for those searching to get as close to the Volk blue as possible. I actually like the metal flake in the paint and the volk blue looks dull to me in comparison.Looks good, but it isn't the same blue thats for sure
paint stripper - 25.00how much did you spend all in all? im planning to do it myself im just not sure yet haha
tisk tisk tisk, power coat ftw nish...paint stripper - 25.00
rim prep items (scuff pad, sand paper, tack cloth) - 30.00
spray paint including clear and primer - 110.00
misc stuff I probably forgot about - 20.00
cost of dismounting(60) and dismounting(90) the tires - 150.00
total - 335.00
for about the same you could powder coat. The reason I didn't is because I am going to track on these rims and I have my hang ups about powder coating rims and how it affects their strength.
