Re: How To; Paint your wheels w/ out removing them

thanks fellas, appreciated! One of my fav mods so far, changes the look of the rig. Even got several compliments at the dealer when i had the Jeep in for some work.

To those doing it, make sure you sand the lip and lug nut area real well. I may have not or rushed through it and paint is starting to chip there. Barely noticeable but it gets to me lol.

Re: How To; Paint your wheels w/ out removing them

i did em while it was on. if you can, do it with it off, much cleaner with the spray paint. I have a few oversprays spots but its not noticeable unless you're real close.

tail lights are MUCH easier to remove than wheels are ... no use in keeping those on if you're going to paint them. Also, that paint ^^^ will block any light coming from your tail lights and is NOT RECOMMENDED . If you want to paint your tail lights black get it professionally done or go buy a can specifically made for that application such as... http://www.amazon.com/VHT-Nite-Shade...1183801&sr=8-1

Thanks. Do u know anything about this? http://www.amazon.com/VHT-Nite-Shade...1183801&sr=8-1

I've heard good things so I was thinking of trying. If not, then professional will be next step. I figure it should be easy to remove just in case.

that stuff sucks... at first it looks good but after about 2-3 weeks the paint gets a dull look to it. Get them professionally done and they will look 10x cleaner
