New toys for the summer:)

Got my new Retrofits. Yay. No more glare.



No money to buy new rims so I decided to paint my rims gold.





Turned out amazing. Going to need new tires soon though.

White + Gold = Amazing! Hope the paint stays, all of the rims I've painted in the past never stay on. I'd be curious where you got the paint from too. Nice mods

Re: New toys for the summer:)

They're Duplicolor paint. It's the engine paint so I'm assuming it withstands high heat. I did 2 layers of primer, 4 layers of color, and 3 layers of clear coat. I hope all this will keep it on :P

I picked up the Retros from a friend that was selling his Prelude. He didn't know they were retros and he used his Prelude as a winter beater so he gave them to me for $150 and i gave him my OEM's. The output is really bright and look amazing at night.

Retrofits look good and the rims look awesome. Was the clear Duplicolor as well?

Yup. The clearcoat and color was duplicolor. Not sure what brand the primer was but it was in the same section at Canadian Tire when I bought it.

I sanded down the rims with I believe it was 350 grid then used paint thinner and wiped down the whole rim before I did any painting.

Re: New toys for the summer:)

I still have to finish painting the other two rims. Only did two right now and it randomly started to snow up here in Canada again so I'm going to have to wait a bit until I can finish painting them and mount them. I'll have pictures soon!

Re: New toys for the summer:)

They're fast wheels. Not the greatest which is why I painted them. Was looking to get new rims, something like RPF1's in gold but couldn't come up with the money in time so decided to just paint my rims and ride it out for a season.

Re: New toys for the summer:)

Wow those wheels look great. And the repeated coats of paint and clear coat should protect the wheels just fine. I repainted a set and they turned out awful (thankfully it was a cheap set from an old old car), but yours turned out beautifully.

Love white and gold

They look very nice and I like the rims. What kind are they exactly? Also what is the difference between your new "retrofit" headlights and the stock OEM ones?

yeah i've painted dozens of sets of wheels for people including myself and it's all about prep work. Sanding, allowing cure time, sanding the prime or scuffing it, and clear coat to make it look and stick great.

Retrofit headlights have projectors that allow HID's to beam and give a nice cut off line without glare. My headlights are also black housing. My rims are Fast Wheels Groove. It came with the car when I purchased it from the previous owner but the idiot did staggered tires and same size 17x7 rims so I'm running 205/45/17 in fronts and 225/45/17 in the rear. I should be running 215/40/17 all around which I plan to do soon.
