(Woo page 30!)
Decided a month or so ago to paint my wheels! All in all this is about 12-15 hours of labor. And about 175 dollars in supplies. (would have been cheaper if I already had a space heater)
Supplies! I ended up buying two more cans of primer than are in this photo. I ended up using three cans of primer. Three cans of paint, and one can of the clear coat. Its always good to have extra. I also ended up needing another package of sand paper that isnt shown here
The color I chose was the gold from the STI BBS's. The company I bought it from was Grimmspeed.
And its gone! (note: not the same wheel as above, didnt get a photo of the after of that one)
Sanding and cleaning!
Shane helped me out today with the sanding and cleaning.
Sanded! and clean!
Keep the wind out, stupid open air garage
Dont want any overspray on the car!
Keeps the paint off the tires!
Second coat and all done!
First coat of gold!
Done with the second coat!
No photo for the 3rd coat of gold or the two coats of clear.
Here are the wheels curing in my bathroom. I put a tiny space heater in there. Should be fully cured in 24-48 hours!!!
