Go to "paint rims black" in the 2010-2014 forum. It's all there for you.

Just buy plasti dip it's like 15 bucks for 2 bottles and looks great. And if you don't like it just peel it off. Look at my wheels

The blue accents are so sexy, and the whole car turned out really good.
I want to do this sometime soon while I have off of school. But I think it is too cold to put the paint on.

They really do look great I am continuing to be amazed at how easy it is to use and the results you get. People think I got new rims!! When I tell them I did it myself with a spray can they can hardly believe it.

++ there's no replacement for the proper tools and equipment to A-1 job. I say if you can't afford to do it right you can't afford to do it twice! Especially if you plan on what your doing being permanent.

I've thought about painting my spoiler with that plasti dip but it wouldn't be shinny like the rest of my paint I don't think, so it wouldn't look as nice.

On the contrary, the Mach 1'a came with the flat black spoiler, even on the black models. I thought about one for a while, just never pulled the trigger.
