Back from powder and assembly time
I will get more pics very soon, but here are two for now..pictures don't do it justice, at least not with my camera..ha!
The tires I used are 165/50/15 front 175/50/15 rear.
So I built a set of RM's a few months ago and because I was soo tied up in the process of building my first set of them, I didn't take any pictures until they were done. It doesn't help that my camera consists of my HTC EVO 4g..lol. Also, I learned my lesson the first time around to not forget to tape off where you don't want paint!! Here are the specs and a few pics of those wheels:
OEM 15" RMs
fifteen52 chrome bolts
OEM plastic hex caps ionized chrome (my guy who does this is amazing)
prismatic black metallic powder (90%gloss)
I had D90s and I was able to trade for another set of OEM RMs which were believed to have never been split, but actually were
Here are the specs on these babies:
OEM 15" RMs
Tunershop 1" lips for the front
Tunershop 2" lips for the rear
Euro Image billet flat caps
fifteen52 Black Chrome Plated Bolts
new 3d logos
prismatic natural white powder (90% gloss)
New flats with logos
Back from blasting and getting taped up
Off to powdercoating, so got some tat work done while waiting
Went to pick them up and saw a double rainbow on the way...what does it mean??

White is always a win. That'll suck to clean

Looks badass dude!
I know what you mean, on taping off the areas you dont want paint in.... 120 effin holes to tap out on the RM's suck!
Did you use vasoline on the o-rings of the centercaps? It may have been the paint, but I had to really work my on.
Mine actually went on really well. I taped off the top of the wheel center and it was a piece of cake. They do fit pretty snug though and thats one thing a lot of people complain about with euroimage flats.
Thanks for the compliment, your's as well. You should come out to DATR!
Yeah.... The guy that painted my wheels was extremely anal about the coverage, but it still made the centercaps super tight. I grease them up with Vaseline before putting them back on. I ganked a pampered chef stone scrapper from my wife, and use it to pry the centers off. It's nice, because it is thin, but has some strength and is made out of plastic, so it won't damage the wheels or center trim rings.
I'd love to come out for DATR... maybe next year, when I am settled into the new house
