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.

BMW M5 F10 186mph Crash in Germany | April 2012
The German Autobahns are famous for being some of the few public roads in
the world without blanket speed limits for cars. Nevertheless the overall
road traffic safety of the German motorway system is comparable to that of
other Western-European highways. But as proven this week, it doesn't take
much to get into an accident, especially when you are driving very fast.
A new BMW M5 (F10) with the speed limiter removed was driving at top speed
on the A81 between Tuningen and Villingen-Schwenningen (not far from the
Swiss border). Due to another driver who joined the traffic and didn't
notice the speeding BMW approaching in his mirror, the driver of the M5 was
forced to brake and swerve his car.
The M5 lost control, smashed into the median barrier, shot across the
Autobahn, rolled over several times before coming to a rest in the grass
and catching fire. The driver of the car which didn't notice the upcoming
BMW fled the scene of the accident. The two sons of the crashed driver, who
were driving a BMW M3 and M6, stopped to help their father and passengers,
and to put out the fire.
The 60-year-old driver, the 20-year-old passenger and a dog in the backseat
were all quite badly injured and were hospitalized. Quite remarkable,
considering the speed they were driving. This shows how safety of cars has
been improved over the years. But as this crash proves, you always have to
pay attention on the Autobahn. Accidents like this one will also fuel the
debate on whether or not a general speed limit should be imposed.
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
