These rims where dropped off with red stripes originally and the entire
wheels were sanded and painted. 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.
DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
email@example.com Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.
Check it out on ebay for the full written DIY.

Spray painting rims
Have you ever wanted to try spray painting your rims? Me too. Here is a
time lapse video of me spray painting silver rims into white.
Washing-Sanding-Priming-Painting-Clear Coating and done. i stopped the
camera after final prime, and final paint so that's why it goes straight
into paint/clear coat in the initial phases. Total time taken... probably
around 5-6 hours. Hopefully it lasts.
1 400grit 3M wetordry sandpaper
1 can dupicolor sandable primer white
2 cans dupicolor engine paint white
1 can Dupicolor Clear Coat
Music: No idea, i had to to do a random audioswap because the music i put
in was copyrighted :(
As well as alloy wheel refurbishment we are able to carry out powdercoating
and wet painting on many other objects. These range from motorbike frames
and motorbike wheels to rocker covers and callipers. In fact we can coat
anything metal that will withstand the curing temp and fit in the curing
oven. Rest assured we only use high quality, high flow powders which are
the most expensive but the best.
