Here's what they started out as... that's rust with scratched and peeling chrome.



Here's what I wanted to do...



Here's what I ended up doing. They are going on my silver vert. I had to strip the chrome, sand, primer, sand, primer, sand, paint 3 coats, sand, paint 2 coats, pinstripe.

I used a flat black industrial paint used for high temp and abrasion resistance. The pin stripe is just car pinstripe that you can buy at Advance Auto. It gives me the option to change colors later, but it sticks incredibly well. I think they turned out really well. I already dropped one and it didn't damage the paint at all.

Nice job. Looks like that was very time consuming. Way to be creative and hope they continue to last for you and look as good as they do:cool:

Look great but while you have them there why not have them powdercoated? The paint will stay for a bit but you will have to redo them in the next year or so I would say depending on climate...

Wow, that looks really good. there is a Saleen running around in Pueblo CO that has the same idea, but they dont look as good. i really like the semi-gloss finish you have. the pinstripe from auto-zone was a good idea!!! When I do this to motorcycle wheels, I just use paint, and I just spin the wheel and hold the paintbrush in one spot.

That's what I was going to do, but didn't have the brass to mess up my new paint job.
