Painting wheel bolts
 
I want to paint the bolts that hold my wheels in place red, and I was wondering what the right process would be..

I'm pretty sure I just;

Sand

Primer

Paint

Dry

Bolt back in

Yeh?
P.S. What grit sandpaper should one use?

You can also buy colored lug nuts at any Advance Auto or Autozone.

Just checked online, and they don't have any near me, is painting them a bad idea?

Yea cuz whenever you torque them back on you'll more than likely scuff off the paint. I bought some mcgard spline drive lugnuts that came in red. Lil pricey as far as lugnuts go tho.

Yeah, I think the lug wrench and sockets will scrape and chip paint. I'd save a few bucks and buy anodized ones. Or maybe try plasti-dip. Everyone seems to have great luck with that stuff being super durable.

I havnt used it personally, but I hear the plasti dip comes in a few different colors. Red being one of them. You might check lowes or home depot and see what they have in stock.
