painted rims and valve cover

well, i got bored with the mb drifters i had on my car and decided to paint them a gunmetal color. they turned out great and took a whole 4hrs to do it. all i did was sand, wash, tape off, and paint and they were all done within a matter of hours. so here they are:




Oh and the infamous valve cover haha. well i found some time this week to also paint my valve cover and man did it turn out cool. it first started out as an iron grey, then i decided to splash some blue and gold into it. and check out the oil cap!!

Re: painted rims and valve cover

Taping around that lip must have been a pain, been there. I probably wouldn't of had the patients to tape around that and would have done the whole rim haha! Looks good though, seeings how you can only get that rim in black or silver that's pretty original for that rim now. Nice work

Re: painted rims and valve cover

hell yeah it was a pain to tape around it, it took more time to do that than to sand it. but it came out pretty good.

haha and as for power washing, i did do that and nothing happened i got right on the wheel itself and blasted it.
