Hi guys,

Just for something different I decided to paint my stock BF rims gloss black.

Here are some pics. Sorry about the crap phone quality.

Just used spray cans. Sanded back, cleaned with thinner, 2 primer coats, 4 coats using gloss black engine enamel and 4 clear coat.

Which grit paper?


I used around 120 (it was a sponge) then to get into the tighter stuff I used a higher grit (medium) sponge folded in half. Itís so much easier than paper.

And I had really dirty wheels. Just go nice and light if using coarse stuff.

I found that if using really fine paper your there for ages trying to clean it out. Primer also sticks a lot better if you take the original finish off.
