Just finished the back two now about to do the front too and it's 3am. And the car is in the towns car show at 9am. Let's hope I get it done right the first time. No sleep for me.

I'm sooo close now. I'm almost done with the second set. Just one more black coat and then a little bit of clear to lock it in.

Thumbs up Re: Rim painting

Looks nice! Do they have a matte finish? I can't tell.
Mine need to be wet sanded and re-cleared.

Re: Rim painting

I've got the same rims, I've been wanting to do this for while but I haven't gotten around to it yet. It turned out pretty dope!

Here's a good close up. I decided to go with a silver edging to match the lug nuts.

I want to get my factory wheels painted too, but I would like gloss black. I've been waiting on a price quote for a few weeks now.

I would rather of had mine in gloss black but I went for the darker matte black finish. I think I'm going to get some glossy black aftermarket rims soon though.

Yeah I went ahead and got mine from craigslist. I was tired of waiting for my quote.

I think I like the powder coating alot better. Do you mind me asking how much it cost you to have it done?

I think I'd like mine striped and powder coated as well. Much more durable finish.
