    well basically heres how i painted the hxs..

    1.first wash them down take oil ,armor all ,any grease off with simple green,comet,ajax,ect ..basically any grease remover works good..

    2. i sanded down with an 800 grit sand paper..i think i works better and paint catches better than 1000

    3. i clean it with and auto prep clean up.
    basically takes off dust or any other residue i might have left before

    4.spray a not so thick coat of primerenough for the paint to catch properly ..

    5.start spraying the paint ,first started with light coats then made coats thicker

    6.spray a red pearl base clear coat .then just spary a regular coat of clear coat .
    make it have that freshly painted car look ..makes rims look legit ..

    heres some pics of the finished product

    It looks like you did a good job man. :thumbsup: I'm only concerned when you have to get them re-balanced and you have to take off the weight off the side you painted. :D
