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 Clean and Polish Your Plastic Headlights
Here is a how to video or how to use the NEW 2009 Headlight kit to clean
and polish your headlighs! Enjoy!
Headlight Restoration Kit - G1900
"I recently purchased the Headlight Restoration Kit, and all I can say is
WOW. I own a 1998 Mustang
GT. It's my daily driver. Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The
headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found
in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new
headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your
website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result.
The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be
looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior
finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening."
J.K. -- Sheboygan, WI
"I used your Headlight Restoration Kit and it worked really well. I had a
lot of build-up on my headlights and I am definitely impressed with how
well it worked. I had tried other products that hadn't worked and am
definitely impressed with yours. Thank you!"

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

Modified steel rim
The center of the rim has been cut off, modified and welded to the backside
of the rim. I also made the rim 2" wider.
This is the first rim I've modified the centre. I've still got lots to
I think a MAG welder would be better for welding rims because they are very
hard to clean perfectly.
I also show the lathe tools I've ended up using for parting rims.
