wish me luck! :ninja:
Yep, i was finally able to find flat black duplicolor wheel paint. (thanks advanced auto parts). i'll post up picks of the wheels when i'm finished, but the wheels won't be going back on the car until the first forcast of snow this year. :frogtongudrewsrt said:make sure you post pics RIGHT after you're done
well, i'm trying to keep them as flat as possible. The clear coat is just for extra protection from the elements and whatnot. I figure since my summer wheels are flat black, might as well try and make the winter (stock) ones as close to that as possible.ViscousCircles said:Why flat black?? Your putting a clear coat over em to make em glossy anywayz, right?
yeah, i know. that's ok if they have a bit of gloss to them. i'd rather have that then peeling, chipping, etc. at least they'll be black. plus they'll only be on the car for a few months every year, so it's not a huge deal.ViscousCircles said:hmmmm then you might not want to put the clear on....they will not come out flat with that clear coat on there.
If you want flat black, no clearcoat. I didn't clearcoat mine and look as flat as they can be. I also had mine for about a year and a half and it looks as good as the day I painted them. :jester:mdhavi18 said:well, i'm trying to keep them as flat as possible.

haha, sorry. don't worry, i'm definately not touching the alts. (on a side note, i got a small scratch in one of my rims, and i colored it in with permenant black marker, and you can't even tell it's there, even now, like 4 months after the fact. :clap: )kaminarineon said:oh man u almost scared the hell out of me cause u already have black ALT's :rofl:
