    Clean spiders...What kind of paint did you use and whats the methods? I gotta learn how to paint. Did you sand the rims down any? Interested in learning the steps and prep work.

    Looks pretty damn good, the bronze look sticks out more then the black on white. I like it! Did you wet sand them once you where done painting them?

    I used 96 cent Wal-Mart spray paint and Krylon satin clear. I sanded them down, sprayed 4 coats of color, and then sprayed 2 coats of clear. Didn't wetsand after I painted...

    As far as prep work, I Simple Green'd them and hosed them. Didn't tape anything off, but I did stick index cards between the rim and tire to keep paint off the tires.

    not bad, i would have went with a slightly darker shade of bronze. a bronze that would be between your bronze and sport bronze.

    I feel ya i wish rotas bronze as was a lil golder too but not gold. I want the torques but i dont think i will go with bronze because i wanted a lighter color bronze. So i might have to choose another color only because the color i want isint the color i want. Oh well. either way i hope your enjoying your rims they still look good. And as for the meshs, i wanted to do this and i thinking im gonna now.

    The car looks grean and i think it was a bold choice trading the p1s, and i think it was worth it as far as looks go, other then that hte p1s might have been worth more but big deal, buddy club is likea ricer company to me almost so eh..... The meshies look pimp.
