I just ordered a can of VHT-Nightshades for my new project. I plan on using 3 or 4 coats to black them out. I will probably get a clear coat but what should I use to clean to lenses? Some people use sandpaper in the process... Also is it easier to just tape around the lights than to remove them?<p>Thanks. <p><IMG SRC="http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/1705/sp999.jpg" BORDER="0">

I like those wheels. How much did you pay to get them painted? It might be worth painting mine and sitting on that until I can save up for something real...

Re: (GetDown)

i had s60R rims on my car, i had my kid, and i said egh, let me sell them. so i sold them for $700, and my stock rims have been sitting in my basement and got all this rusty stuff on it with the clear coat peeling. <p>so i sanded them down to complete bare metal, 3-4 coats of primer, 4-5 coats of black, and 8 coats of clearcoat.<p>the rims look better than they did stock. <p>im in the market of s60R rims now. so if anyone comes across them, let me know.........
