Smile Paintin wit VG7Z : How to paint rims!!! detailed with pics 56k ok

ok i decided to paint my gsr rims again so here we go...

Materials

-Sandpaper, u need 2 types a rough and smooth, a 400 and 800 will be OK
-Some orange glo stuff or simple green to clean rims
-1 can primer, I used Duplicolor Black sandable primer, cuz paint will stick better
-1 can VHT gold brake caliper paint
-1 can clear coat



Start off by givin the rims a nice wash and scrub everywhere get all the dirt off


next u need to sand it, sand it with rough sandpaper first, then follow up with smooth


wash off all the sanded dust and crap and DRY!! Dry the rims as MUCH AS POSSIBLE this is very very important!


Now pick a day for ideal painting. It should be warm above 70 degrees and lpower than 90. It should NOT be windy, and its easier to do in a closed enviroment




Unless u want to get high, always use proper safety procedures!



Start off by heating the primer with a blowdryer, this helps it stick better




Paint the rims in an upright position, and hold the can approx. 8-10 inches away. Remmember, use quick strokes, NEVER apply heavy coats, quick light coats are best. You dont want the paint to drip or run..wait 10-15 minutes between coats


all primered up


after u get a nice thick primer coat on, SAND IT with the smoothest sandpaper u have. 800 is good. this will further help the next type of paint stick better


now to shoot the bronze on


same procedure as primer, upright position, quick short strokes and sprays and LIGHT COATS!


finished coats, used the whole can, approx 4 good coats



close up


Now that youre done, u can spray some clear coat on...i highly recommend this, as clear coat makes it look "wet" and shiny, and plus adds an extra layer of protection

To go even further u can wax the rims! This makes it even shinier, and makes it easier to wash off brake dust




on the whip...


I hope u guys enjoyed this! I paint rims all the time and this method is very effective and turns out great. I get a lot of props on the rims i paint, and most people are suprised when i say i used spray paint to paint em.

oh yeah

gettin paint off tires is a breeze since paint doesnt stick on rubber too well

i was ghetto and used a toothbrush and GASOLINE...however be careful as drops might slpash off the gas and tire and go onto the rim and thats bad


but i recommend u mask off the tires, i was lazy

or you could put some kind of oil like on the tire, around the rim so the paint doenst stick to the tires, and you can just wipe it off.

Or you can take index cards and stick them between the lip of the rim and the tire. Stick them end to end and they'll form a nice circle to keep paint off the tire.

Was thinking about painting my 88s SI wheels the same satin black, just kind of worried that it'll look ghetto.

Hah, I noticed that too ^^

As far as the paint chipping, it's no worse than any other painting solution on a car Don't run into shit, and it won't chip I had some painted VW Golf wheels on my teg for over a year and never had an issue with the rattle can finish holding up. Of course, I did go kinda nuts on the clear coat, but who wouldn't? I hardly ever had to shine the things Spray
em with a hose and yer done.
