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.

"How To" Port polish an intake manifold
In this video I show you how to port polish an intake manifold. Remember to
wear your safety gear and take your time. The intake itself took roughly 2
hours to polish. Removal of the head is recommended before any grinding or
polishing to ensure none of the filings make it into the cylinder bore and
cause damage to the cylinder walls.

How to make your own side exhaust
- Tired of $600 side-pipe (side exhuast) kits that lose power in the end?
Make your own! Note* The shorter the muffler, the less drastic a bend you
need to make. The thinner, the closer to the middle of the car they can be
situated, also making for less of a bend.
