Re: just painted my rims...

I usually dont like painted rims but bro these look sick!! Great job! I really like the chrome lip you left. I hate when people paint them all black. Good work, they look great!

Re: just painted my rims...

Dude, amazing paint job. Did you use regular paint? Spray? Powder coat?

Re: just painted my rims...

I also painted my wheels, these wheels came with my prelude when I got it. They had curb marks on just about every wheel. an paint was chipping etc. I pulled out the dremel an smoothed down the curb marks best i could, preped, then sprayed. This was my result. Gloss black with cherry red lip. ( I have not worked on the chrome lip yet, I'd like to know what i could do to bring that *new* shine back.
