Painting wheels

Post by Kevyk »



Hi
Has anyone had any experience in removing the clear coat off the wheels?....and painting them?......mine has developed 'squiggly' lines under the clear coat.....

Cheers

Have your wheels powder coated, they will hold up longer and brake dust will clean off easy.

I had a front wheel sandblasted and powdered sliver with a clearcoat. It turned out great, looked real good. Only cost me $50 but I know the powder coat guy.
