Painted my wheels

Odd, but both wheels on the driver's side were flaking off their silver paint. Passenger side appears fine....
So I bought some silver wheel paint, and after power spraying the rest of the flaking paint off, I got to work.

Masked off the tires with some masking solution used for models, tape wouldn't stick. Once the masking stuff dries you can peel it off like dry Elmer's glue (pretty much the same stuff)



Primer is a must to make it stick!


Peel the masking off

Looks nice, I am happy with my Cooper Cobra tires. They are wider and about an inch shorter than factory stock.

Thank You,
Reason ask is the 95 SC needs a small amount of bling. Chrome plastic SC letter stick on affairs ordered. Will see how they look.

Looking good man. I was considering painting my wheels to go with my roof, black metallic with a silver lip. But Im planning on buying some new wheels once my next paycheck clears. Keep putting updates man!

Getting those as well. Chrome letters are for the sides of the front fenders on the 95.
Thanks,
