Lightbulb What do you think of me doing this?

My car looks a little different than this now but I still have the same wheels...




I was thinking of painting or getting them powdercoated a darker color somewhat like this...



I need a little project to do this weekend...

Nice OEM rims, I say do it!

Just take your time and do a good job and you'll be happy with the results I'm sure.

Another small project that will make those rims POP!!

Is paint those brake calipers red.

i thought that darker color the black chromium was called Hyperblack. I wanted a set of hyperblack rims so bad. Its kinda like a dark chrome. in the light it looks chrome but when you look at it closer u see its almost black. Best color ever.

Look at this knucklehead try to paint his OEM wheels...



Sunday, September 17, 2006

Painting stock snowflake Integra wheels black
Current mood: satisfied
Category: Automotive

First we preped the wheels with a degreaser, then ruffed them up with a red scouring pad. Then taped up thee surounding area.(use papers towles to cover the rotors and caliphers)




All ready to paint, We did 2 coats of black 10-15 mins in between coats. Three coats of Clear coat 10-15 minutes inbetween coats as well.




Here is me doing some of the work.



Waiting, Waiting...Waiting..




Finnaly the wait is over! Before...



AFTER!





Now For the test Drive...

Ran into a little trouble on the way.. Ticketed for 19mph over, 1mph more and Ide be skrewed and almost got ticketed for street racing! whats with that! So Im happy with my ticket could have been worse..

Notice the copious amount of prep work involved...He didn't even bother to take the wheel off the car or mask off the tire...Just went and sprayed the wheel on the car!
