Duplicolor Wheel paint=-(

I have used the duplicolor wheel paint with amazing results in the past. I did my 2005 Neon SRT-4 a gunmetal and they were perfect. I have stock new edge GT wheels on my stang and wanted to go with a darker color. 40 bucks and many hours (and cans of paint) and I could not get this stuff to work. Several cans all did the same thing. Sprayed out like a powder and made a nasty texture on the wheels. Even after hours of drying you could just wipe most of it off of the wheel with your finger. I tried different colors and the clear. Same thing. I finally got pissed and sanded them all down and prepped them again. Decided what the hell and tried Rustoleum Professional series protective enamal in a gloss black. HOLY S***! Finally some results! They look like they came from the factory in black. I'll get some pictures up in a couple hours. With the new paint job on the car and the glossy black wheels she looks better than ever!

I've seen numerous people paint their stock rims a flat black. While it is more forgiving if you make a mistake, when your driving it looks like your riding on steelies. This rusto gave a nice deep, glossy black at about 5 bucks a can. All you need is 2 cans, 400 grit sand paper, tak cloths, and index cards to keep from painting your tires. Oh and a few hours on a nice sunny day.

Most likely the wheel surface probably a nice layer of clean coat, which by the way I hope you put on while the black paint was fresh if not clean em and respray them then add a dupi-color clearcoat. Also I'd like to see the pics cuz I did use flat black on mine and I'm too thinking gloss would look better

Re: Duplicolor Wheel paint=-(

I washed, sanded, washed, tacked. Two light coats, one medium. Clear 10 minutes after last coat. Even tried wet sanded inbetween coats of one wheel. I'v used there products and have done several sets of wheels using these same steps and never had this happen before. No biggie, they look great now, pics up in a few.

The last shot was the duplicolor with no clear.

Re: Duplicolor Wheel paint=-(

The other pics of the wheels isn't duplicolor. It is Rustoleum Professional series protective enamal. I sanded all the duplicolor off and started from scratch with the rusto and got much much better results. The only thing I can think of is that the dupli had a bad batch. I've never had it come out so bad. It was well within the temp and moisture recommendations outside too.

Re: Duplicolor Wheel paint=-(

Yah I was going to get the duplicolor black kit for my calipers but decided on sonic blue...duplicolor didn't offer anything close so I took a chance and tried some touch up paint...it's been a year now and they've held up great, hell I didn't even use any clear...just some touch paint and a foam brush lol.

I used Daytona Yellow Rust-Oleum. One can did the trick for my Calipers, 3 coats
