Big thanks to my buddy Derek for his help. When we finished decided to have some fun and take some rig shots of my tl-s. Check out Derek Wheeler Photography.

Scuffed them with scotch pad, deflated and pressed sides to insert index cards between rim and tire. Sorry no other pics. Derek asked me mid paint if I took any and i was like like oh shit i forgot. lolthe color looks great! Did you strip the wheels first or just paint over the black. What prep did you do?

Yeah he is amazing. i have know derek for about 8 years or so and it has been amazing to watch his work change to what it is today. I would not ask anyone else to shoot any of my vehicles.I'm a huge fan of Derek's photography... He's up there in the ranks.
Thanks, I usually wouldn't do it either. Just wanted to make sure gold was the color i wanted. Also wanted it to look better hence the best wheel spray paint you can get. Alot of people use this paint to touch up bbs, hurst olds, and other old school jdm gold wheels. I will eventually powdercoat them.Ive never been a fan of rattle canning wheels.
Car wheels or bike wheels. always seemed ghetto to me.
Something the ricer kids would do in highschool. But this actually turned out good!
hopefully it holds up well for you. A+ on taking a chance!
