did some sh rim painting today

Well I was first going to strip and polish my sh rims, Sat I spent 6 hrs doing one rim only to have it come looking semi ok making me mad as hell. So I decided to just paint them for now. I was only able to do one tire right now so it will look kinda crazy until I get them all done. (im lucky to have time to do one lmao) So here is the finish product, still not done yet, was going to carbon fiber the center rim cap and do red around the lip

pics were taken with phone sorry, camera died. Also the brake cal is pink from stupid kids painting my car one night. They will soon be red

Good job man, I did mine a hyper black for winter. It was different than just black, but now I'm back to silver.

lol yes its duct tape because when I got home I realized I forgot to get the tape from autozone so thats what was laying around. I wanted to polish them but the rim is so rough and after 6hrs of doing one rim I said forget this. Have fun with it though lol

Re: did some sh rim painting today

Paint the calipers black to hide them, going with the black theme. I think that would look better than the red. Just my opinion though. I have a all black lude, black leather, black tinted windows, black brakes.

Re: did some sh rim painting today

Im gone give the red a shot first only because I have the paint in the garage, if I dont like how it looks Ill go all black. that was my second option anyway. I was also thinking about taking the middle rim caps and doing carbon fiber on them.

Re: did some sh rim painting today

I knew this was going to happen, nobody ever finishes the polishing project. At least I haven't given up on mine yet.

lol I wish I had the time to finish them like I wanted to. Since im in the process of buying a house, school and work its hard to jugle things. Only bad thing with me is I would have to put car on jack to get tire off and then put tire back on after I work on it that day. Doing that over and over would get old. I want to see them when its done, im interested in how it will look.
