Default How to Paint Your Wheels (THE RIGHT WAY)

Well everyone loved the color i did for my rims and loved how they came out in the pictures so this is the tutorial, PAY ATTENTION because if you mess the process up you will have to redo the WHOLE W H E E L!!!!

What you will Need:

Paint Brush
Masking Tape (only if you want to mask off places you dont want painted)
Aircraft Paint Remover
Tin Can
Wire Brush
Paint thinner(Acetone)
Scuff pad
Sun/Hair Dryer
Primer Paint
Any colored Paint
Clear coat
Sand Paper
Water

!THE PICS IM USING ARE NOT MY PICS!

STEP 1: You have to remove the clear coat off your rims, even though it may not look like there is clear coat on the rims, TRUST ME there is a clear coat!

Take the paint remover (i put it in a tin can cambells chick noodle prefered lol) and take your paint brush and dip it into the paint remover, apply to rims.

Click the image to open in full size.

The rim will start to bubble up, wait 20 minutes and take wire brush and scrape off the clear coat...

your rim will look like this when it is scraped

Click the image to open in full size.

STEP 2: After scraped, take acetone and wipe rim down thoroughly! wait 10 minutes and wash with soap and water after washing with soap and water dry the rims properly leave it in the sun or use a hair dryer to dry excess water...

STEP 3: Take sanding paper i used all purpose(it didnt have any grit number on it) and sand the rim in all the nooks and crannies

Click the image to open in full size.

STEP 4: Mask part you do not want painted, after all parts are masked and marked take your scuff pad and scuff rim

Click the image to open in full size.

STEP 5: Take acetone and wipe down the rim with cloth make sure theres no dust on the rim..

STEP 6: Take primer and spray rim with light coats (the first coat should not cover rim thoroughly)

Click the image to open in full size.

Wait 5 minutes and spray second coat, lightly...

Click the image to open in full size.

Wait 5 minutes and spay again, now you might see the rim fully covered expect a few spots this depends on the design of the rim(mines was kind of hard) lay down final coat of primer


STEP 7: let the wheel sit for ATLEAST 20 minutes after it dries sand the rim again

Click the image to open in full size.

STEP 8: lay first coat of paint MAKE SURE IT IS LIGHT A COAT if you do not do this process right you will have to redo the WHOLE RIM

Spray in a sweeping motion left to right or right to left...
Click the image to open in full size.

Wait 10 minutes and lay down second coat CRUCIAL STEP:(after this process let the paint cure, this is a step my dad taught me this makes the paint sink into the rim) WAIT A GOOD 24 HOURS!

STEP 9: take scuff pad and scuff rim again...after scuffed apply another light coat (THIS SHOULD BE YOUR THIRD COAT)

WAIT 10 MINS and apply another coat to rim, you should inspect rim to see if it is evenly coated, if it still is unevenly painted add another light paint coat...

STEP 10: wait 30 minutes before laying down clear coat, follow steps like painting rims make sure you apply medium coats DO NOT SCUFF OR SAND!

STEP 11: after final clear coat and you are satisfied with your work put it to dry in a clean place and air dry (DRY IT INDOORS UNTIL FULLY DRIED)

STEP 12: INSPECT once satisfied pull off the masked areas VERY SLOWLY! an voila! done!!!!!

ENJOY!
