: Refinished my wheels

02-20-11, 06:47 PM
Well after looking for some aftermarket wheels and finding very few options and the ones I did find are pretty expensive. I decided to refinish the stock wheels.
I had the tires removed then I stripped the wheels down and masked them off. Then started with an epoxy primer and found cans of paint specifically for wheels at Autozone. Painted them silver similar to the stock color but then masked off the face of the wheels and painted the sides of each spoke and the inside area black. Then hit it all with 600 grit and like 3 coats of clear. They look great and wish i could post pics but if you want to see PM me and I can send anyone a pic that is interested.. So nothing radical but different than all the rest stock Vee's.
