so right now I don't have any money for a new set of wheels, and I decided to paint my existing ones. A good friend of mine helped me with that, and so we first sanded them down, applied one coat of primer, 3 coats of paint, and 3 clear coats. and this is the result:<p>before:<br><IMG SRC="http://666kb.com/i/b907ohlutlt60z9xl.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>during and after:<br><IMG SRC="http://666kb.com/i/b907p733iesgay1ah.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://666kb.com/i/b907pl5hbrcwwnqbt.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://666kb.com/i/b907q03ymitl2b8cp.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://666kb.com/i/b907u0g8bdb0d9p8p.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>they still have to dry now, I'll post pics mounted on the car by the end of next week (don't have my new tires here atm...)<p>cheers<br>martin

Re: (V50_T5)

See there is your problem you are painting it with a gravity feed gun! A rattle can gives better results and I can do it in my parking deck for you; comes out greater than your paintbooth <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Looks awesome and good color choice on the mix <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
