phillay Posted February 1, 2015 Share Posted February 1, 2015 Just got my wheels cleaned up at home, I took some pics and stuff I thought I would share it incase if other people would like to have a go. it's not hard or anything if you have questions ask away. my wheels were stained I am not sure why, but heaps of cleaning it never got rid of the water stains, and I never liked the colour. so my cousin helped me with this, he took the wheel off we gave it a clean with soap and water and wiped it down so it's dry and started to mask off the wheel barrel. gave it a coat of primer that we got from masters, there was only one type and it said it was good for steel and alloy the can costed $7. 1 can was enough for 3 coats for 4 of my wheel centres. then we gave it 3 coats of this metallic gold colour, at the start it looked really bad.. but the paint completely changed once it was dried up a few hours later I wanted a matt smooth gold finish but it looked like it was coated in a layer of gold melted cocholate texture, but my cousin who is a pro with rattle can painting said it's fine let it dry up.. i freaked out when it was like this: close up but when it all settled down it was like this. it's a flat matt gold, i was happy with the result.
