Got A Set Of '93 Cobra Wheels To Refinish!

Picked up an extra set of fanblades today for the Cobra. Planning on refinishing them to black with a silver lip. This way, I don't have to screw with the originals that came on it, and I can roll with the wheels I want on there now and still be able to put it back to stock! Plus my originals are in exceptional shape, so I don't want to molest them anyway! Just thought I'd share! Here are a couple that I worked with earlier that are ready for paint! The other pic is what I'm hoping to accomplish!

I've seen them on the Teal cars and fell in LOVE with the look! I've always liked black wheels with a silver lip!

Plus 1.... There was a thread the other day with someone wanting their rims photoshopped with the lip gone... I was like WTF. It looks deadly... I told him to leave em alone. They were nice just like they were.... You need the lip to accent the black

That was Al, he wants the blackout look and I agree with you. I posted that pic of his wheel all scribbled out and said thats what it would look like.lol

Putting them in the basement once these are done. They are in way too good of shape to get rid of for sure!

For sure, I'll only put the originals on if it's a show that would count against me if I didn't.

Oh yeah, also picked up an Autometer oil pressure gauge in a pillar pod, and took out my triple gauges. All I need is the oil pressure, I like to keep an eye on that.

Yup, same concept, just the fanblades instead of the split 3 spoke! I was thinking about a gunmetal color as well? Everyone does the black, and I do really like gunmetal.

Re: Got A Set Of '93 Cobra Wheels To Refinish!

So, just because I like to be different, I went with gunmetal.....Don't look too bad if I say so myself. Used the Rustoleum wheel paint, and it turned out quite nice!

Re: Got A Set Of '93 Cobra Wheels To Refinish!

That would have been nice, but I didn't feel like spending a ***** ton of money for paint. I like the gunmetal, plus it's on the different side. Now just to get my tires switched over to these and get some pics of them on the car! Won't be for a while though, so I may just put some new ones on these and then change them out.
My originals already have brand new tires on them, so not sure which way to go. probably just go for new ones on these, f it!

The wheels came out great. Time, patience, and some self discipline can make a set of wheels look *****in. The original state looked great, but now it's a way different feel.

Re: Got A Set Of '93 Cobra Wheels To Refinish!

They probably won't be on for a while, I have to get some tires for them and all that. I'm just going to leave the other tires on my original set. Probably take a month or two to get them on there. Not in a big hurry cause she's still going to be hiding from the snow and salt for a couple of more months at least!
