Been meaning to do it for awhile, class was canceled so I got the front done today.

Before:

Grimey old black looked awfully dull and boring.




Cleaned with a good all purpose cleaner and Meguires wheel cleaner with a brush. Wiped off and sanded lightly with steel wool.


And viola! Paint used was Dupli-Color Metalcast base coat. It's a very flakey silver.


While I had the wheels off I went ahead and cleaned the inside of the wheels, they were nasty. It's funny I think my powdercoater did a better job of doing the inside of the wheel on a few of these [chair]. Guess that's what I get for going for the cheaper guy. Oh well.

All purpose cleaner left for a few


Then cleaned with Meg's wheel cleaner and wiped clean.


Everything back together, much better than before. Clean and subtle.



Obligatory full car shot.



[cheers]

I normally do to but I'm trying to keep a clean subtle theme so I wasn't looking for something that jumped out to much.

Must be nice. I dislocated my shoulder 3 weeks ago and ended up with a 3rd degree separation. No BMX for me for another month. Lame. But atleast I've been catching up with some stuff on my car I've been neglecting.
