      I think the colors are cool, and it looks like you did a good job painting them. I'm not sure if they are gonna look good on your car though.

      In that case you win.

      I painted 2 of my wheels one week put them on the car, rolled around with two painted two non painted for a week. Then the next week I went to paint the other two And I realized I lost my wheel lock key, so I cant take the wheels off to paint them. I've been rolling around with two painted wheels and two originals for about a month now. Still haven't found the key.

      I lose.

      I did something similar but not as severe, AHaha, i painted 2 of my swings Red just to stand out, and then the lovely michigan weather went from 50 to 20 in a day so i couldnt finish the other two, but fortunately and unfortunately, my car is stuck in the garage due to a collapsed lifter and the motor being torn apart. But right now i have 2 red swings, and 2 graphite ones. ahaha.

      And cant you take a socket thats close to the lock and hammer it on, then turn? My old auto tech teacher said thats how he used to boost wheels from people. hahahaha learned alot about cars from that guy. Moreso how to steal them.

      Yeah I read that a few places when I originally panicked and didn't know what to do. I just honestly havent cared enough to try, the weather has been so poopy lately. I might try tomorrow, if that doesn't work I'll just break them out.

      Or deflate both tires, and jam a deck of cards inbetween the rim and the wheel, sand down, paint, and clearcoat. Ahaha, wont be an A+ job but people wont notice from a distance. Itll buy you some time, and would a locksmith be able to get into something like that?

      Didn't think about a locksmith. But I think I'd rather not pay and just break it out. I don't have a use for them anyway.

      They are just stock swings, winter beaters. I have "thepirates" old AMG's that are in the works of getting on the car for summer. I hope I'll be able to have them on by the time summer starts.

      Yep, those are them. I'm not keeping them purple though. I have other plans for them, but Chris kept them in very good condition, couldn't be more pleased.

      I like the newer Merc wheels. They are the 5spoke, kind of look like the split spoke audi wheels but a little more aggressive. Come on the brand new Mercs. Those would be schweet in a flat black with a nice accent color.

      Yeah thanks, haha its mostly harleys but he does some cars. I kind of want to do a candy color on the swings bc I've never seen it done before but I'm scared as to if it'll look like garb.
