Default Painted the wheels finally

I finally bit the bullet and painted my wheels, well for now, ive only done 1, but they came out pretty good i feel. i dun goofed on a little bit of it, but i can fix it later or leave it as a reminder that i did it.

This is with the self etching primer


1st and 3rd base coats



The 1st and Last clearcoat



Where i dun goofed (kinda hard to see)


Finished product


And some random photoshops i did of what i think is the best shot of my truck to date.

Its graphite, i didnt want to do black, i felt its done too much, yea its rattle can. all that for $20, and i figure each can can do about 2 wheels per can.
Heres a pic of it next to my truck.


That one turned out better than the one with the camera on the bucket without flash


It matches the truck nicely, i like it better than if i actually polished them really.

That looks amazing! All rattle can? B series really look better than Rangers.

Looks awesome. Did you strip the clear off the wheel before priming it?

As far as the later models go I love them both but I like the Rangers a little more

I'll be pretty satisfied with mine once I rebadge it as a Ranger
