Your rims look good Avie..What you could try on the red accents is have a graphic shop make em for you instead of painting em..Pretty sure they can do that for you.Price might be like $10 bucks for all 4 rims.Give it a try.

I also put on something like 5 or 6 coats. I did not even tape it off. Actually I taped off the rigged portion of the tire after the test wheel. It will come off the smooth portion just fine.
