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.

How To Polish Aluminum Rims
This is how I polish aluminum rims. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
How did I learn to do this? Just like you are right now-by watching
YouTube! Special thanks goes to DC Super Shine for all their videos and
Rims were originally on the back of a semi truck. The driver traded them
in for super singles, so I bought all eight. I polished them for my bus,
and the extras I polished to sell.
They are available for whoever wants to buy them.
9/26/14 You can buy the polishing wheels and compound at iowa80, select TA
truckstops and eBay. The sanding grits I used in order are 80, 120, 220,
320, 400, 600, and 800. I had to buy the 4, 6, and 800 paper online.
Starting with 80 grit is not always necessary- I only used it because it
the rim protectors left grooves in the rim face.
I did some research before I started polishing and learned a few basic
ideas in polishing. By sanding and making the surface smoother, we remove
the tiny ridges and imperfections, then polish to make it visually
appealing. Also, the shine comes from high speed buffing- not heat or

Sleepers Two Official Trailer
This is a short documentary I made for a class. Using mostly my own found
footage, I give a commentary on "Sleepers" and my own personal experiences
This video was intended to tell a story and be mildly entertaining/funny.
No one in this film thinks they drive the fastest car on the planet. We are
all aware of our limitations.
Try to enjoy it :)
I'm getting messaged like crazy to reveal the mod lists for my cars. This
is a bit difficult to do for the Regal since it almost never had the same
setup on it for more than a few weeks! Anyway I'll try my best!

SHO - SHO SHOp catless Ypipe (That's it!!!) (Stock during most of the Races
