As a reminder, all four look like this:

it might be hard to do, but it would look uber clean if you could peel the plastidip off of the ford logo (blue oval)

I could probably use a razor and cut out the Ford logo from the center. I might just do that...

For now, one last teaser. I'm taking Friday off, so I may just change my oil early and get these mounted up sooner than planned!

Also...I was just thinking about how much of a !@#$% it was to tape off the center of the wheels to just do the lip. So I'm suggesting the following BETTER, EASIER, FASTER ways if you are interested in going this route:

-Use tin foil to shape the circle in the center instead of tape/newspaper/whatever
-Create a poster board template

Both of those will be easily removed in between coats so that you have clean lines and don't accidentally peel off the black base coat. That was the biggest problem. I had to put the tape on my arm and then peel it off a few times in order to reduce how strong the adhesive was on the tape. The first wheel I taped up without reducing the adhesion ended up peeling off quite a bit of the black when I removed it.

Hopefully that helps someone!

good tips right there ^^^^

as i was looking at the pic, i was thinking of a posterboard template as well.

good idea with the tin foil, readily available and easily managed.
