Looks good, how does the paint hold up on the wheels?

Considering that they were painted silver? Bad joke.
Considering that they were painted black? Good, and sell the monocular to pay for the eye doctor.

Easy, guy. All is in good fun. Cheers, JV.



P.S.: When you use the right prep and the right paint, there should not be any trouble with durability.

well i didnt really research the whole painting my rims deal, but i witnessed a friend of mine paint his rims simply by cleaning them thoroughly, sanding them lightly and using engine enamel as paint, without a clearcoat.

so i pretty much did the same thing, little did i know the engine enamel takes in a lot of heat, so it is almost impossible to clean the rims, because when you spray water on them, it instantly dries up.

in the near future i plan to redo them, using a different method:
clean the rims thoroughly
sand them lightly
spray 2 to 3 coats of primer
then spray 5 coats of high heat paint
and then 3 coats of clearcoat

using this method the color and durability should last to about a good two years.
