are you using a spray gun or normal spray can?

use a 2K lacquer for the top coat as they are much more durable and glossy than normal 1K lacquer :)

I never knew it was that easy to repaint wheels!

Do they need some sort of sealant coat on top or do you just use something like poorboys wheel sealant?

Ah my apologies. You just make it look easy for us mere mortals who have never spray painted wheels before.  :D

Though I do have a small shed coated with spray paint from various things.

It might be just me that I didn't find it easy job  :P  :) but definitely would do it again  :D

very nice work mate :D
Cheers  :)




Any suggestions what to do with centre caps ? Leave them as they are (just polish them) or paint black lip?

Looking great!

I think the black lip on the centre caps is much nicer than silver!

So how long do we have to wait before they get back on the car?

Good work mate, do think all matt black would look better though.

They never stay spanking new with no damage for long  >:(
