well, in the process of...

all the wheels had been painted before by a previous owner and hadnt been done well cause they peeled and bubbled and then they got scratched up a bit. i just used some napa Duplicolor wheel spray paint metalic silver and then the clearcoat. not too sure about the level of gloss from the clearcoat.

i started with the spare and this is how it turned out. sorry for the crappy pics, didnt think about takin pics until i was already in it.

no guide, just wingin it. saw the cans at NAPA and figured why not. then grabbed some sand paper and tack clothes from a hardware store and thats what it got me.
