08 red se sedan gunmetal grey stock wheels

well im at it again. thought id stay home tonight have a few brews on work on the focus. got tired of the plain stock silver wheels so i picked up some Dark gunmetal grey metallic paint and currently painting them. will post pics when done. so far they look 1000x better and go great with my red car and red calipers

well heres a couple pics . the bigger pic of the whole car was taken at night so u cant see the color or metallic flake . but they sure do pop looks alot better.ill post a daytime pic asap. i know there just stock rims and some ppl wouldnt do this but for $10 bucks i think they look way better.

i did 2 light coats and 2 heavyy coats .took 2 cans for all 4 rims. still have some left in the 2nd can for the caps =)

i might end up doing my grill in this color also . not sure yet.

im in the process of painting the center caps today thats why there off . looks great though . probably gonna paint the mirror caps and handles red soon . anyone know if the chrome on the handles pops off like a cover or is it one big solid piece ?

Wow, those look REALLY nice. Especially from a rattle can. What type of paint did you use again?

i used rustoleum "metallic" it can be used for indoor /outdoor use. says"brilliant metal finish" on the can.

i didnt use sandpaper i used red scotch brite . works way better and faster to do .

use soap and water spray it and use scrotch brite .itll get all the oils and brake dust off easy.

need any more tips just let me know. im glad everyone else liked it i was iffy at first lol
