How to paint aluminum wheels.
Get a kit at http://scratchwizard.net/alloy-wheel-repair-kit.html TRANSCRIPT: First, we need to get these wheels as clean as possible so the paint we apply to them sticks permanently. I'll first wet the wheel, then spray on some of our Eazy Wheels acid-based wheel cleaner [show bottle to camera] I'll let that dwell for about 20 seconds and pressure wash it off. I'll probably need to repeat the process, and scrub with steel wool if necessary. Please be sure to use rubber gloves when handling EZ Wheels. [Wet wheel with pressure washer, apply EZ Wheels. Wait 20 sec., pressure wash. Repeat as necessary. Use steel wool if needed] Now if you're restoring painted wheels you would simply scuff them with a grey pad like this [show grey scuff pad to camera] then apply your paint [show preval sprayer w/ silver paint] and then your clearcoat [show clear coat]. But because these are bare aluminum wheels with no paint surface, we must first sand them with 220 grit sandpaper [show sandpaper], then aply primer [show primer] then apply silver paint [show preval sprayer w/ silver paint] and finally apply cleaer coat [show clear coat]. Sand with firm pressure, being sure to sand the entire face of the wheel, even deep in the spokes. [sand the entire face of the wheel] Clean the wheel surface with wax and grease remover. [clean wheel] Now mask off the tire. I prefer to insert playing cards between the wheel and tire. [insert playing cards] Cover up your brake rotors with a bit of masking paper. [insert masking paper behind wheels] Apply primer in multiple light coats [spray multiple light layers of primer]. I've waited 20 minutes for the primer to dry, and I'm going to smooth it down with 600 grit wet sandpaper. [wetsand wheel surface with 600 grit paper] Wipe dry. Now spray multiple light coats of silver wheel paint [spray wheel paint]. It's a good habit to rotate your wheels a few times by driving the car backwards or forwards a few feet so you can see if you've missed any important spots. [drive car forward about 12 inches]. Once you've allowed your silver wheel paint to dry for 5 minutes, apply your clear coat in multiple light coats [apply clear coat] In about 10 minutes, your clear coat is dry and you can remove your playing cards and masking paper [remove masking paper and playing cards]. End.

This how to paint your rims video doesn't properly illustrate the prep work that was done prior to painting. The wheels where completely scuffed, cleaned and the black was masked off before painting the rims. The clear coat applied at the end provides the shine and durability of the wheels. This customer had brought me a set of rims from his Mazda 6 that had a red strip originally but he wanted it painted yellow to match the rest of his car. After about 10hrs of work the rims had been painted successfully. I think the rims look pretty sweet, they kinda remind me of the bumblebee man transformer. This is how to paint rims with or with the stripe, base and clear like any other job works great. The rims were first scuffed with a sanding paste and scotch pad to prep them for the paint to adhere. Next the line was taped up and the color was applied to the rims. The first coat was a white ground coat to help my yellow cover better since it is transparent. I used a Devilbiss Dagr airbrush to apply the basecoat and a Devilbiss gti was used for clearcoat. After basecoat the tape was removed and I removed any overspray off the rims and remasked them. The tire was masked off of the rim and the valve stem was taped up also. Two coats of BASF clearcoat was applied and allowed to dry. The basecoat used here was RM ONYX HD Waterborne paint.
