Yeah I like the insides of the spokes idea. you can tape off everything on the "face" of the spokes and then hit the inside well and back/sides of the spokes. that could look cool and if not, just peel it off. Do a test on just one to see how you like it. subtle flat black could look nice

If you do it in blue, just be aware that you'll have to do multiple coats (2-3) in order for it to really stick. The first coat barely shows any blue, unless you use white Plasti Dip as a primer. Since my base was black, I had to do two coats before it was thick enough.

That said, unless you immediately peel the tape off, remember you run the risk of it tearing off with the tape.

Thanks, wanted to protect the paint and be different.
The hubcaps are Moon racing discs, the kind people use at Bonneville Salt Flats.

Oh my god.

Somebody give this man a rep point!
Mad props for being unique and having the brass balls (not to mention the exorbitant amount of time) necessary to attempt this feat of fantasticness!
