Wheel painting adventure!

So today my friend and I had some fun with my Rota Subzeroes. They were looking pretty bad so we said, "hey, why not paint em?" We headed to our local kragen where we found wheel paint for 5 dollars. We also picked up some 600 grit sandpaper for 2 bucks. In total this project cost 7 dollars and about six and a half hours, but my wheels look a hell of a lot better then they did before and I love em!

here's a before and after shot, before on top, after on bottom.


Here's what the car looked like before.


And here's what it looks like now.


Here's a close up shot of the wheel done and on the car.
