If you have a few automotive body work skills, you can fix your own wheels. What I learned was there is very little clear coat and even less paint. The next time I do this (I am sure there will be), it will be easier to just repaint the whole wheel. The section I repainting is a tick darker but in sunlight, hard to tell. Going to just two coats of paint instead of 3 would be better. I would not attempt to take on structure damage, just cosmetics. This repair costs me $45 for paint, $15 for the urethane clear. High quality 2 part clear is a must.

Very nice work! Oddly enough that's the same paint color code as the 98 Cobra wheels. Great to see so many on this forum take pride in a car that many would say "why bother?!".

Remember when I said "If anything happens to my rims, I'm shipping them to you"? Maybe I can try this on my own... [:(]
