You don't have to powder coat the wheels to paint them. If done right the finish with paint is even more durable than powder coat.DHandyman said:I would have expected powder coat to be a bit less.. dull... in finish.Â But then, thats just me...
Lol, yeah you're right, it does... Don't think I care for that look much.. would rather go with polished aluminum/clearcoat or just outright chroming. Like shiney wheels myself tho.. and I really like that at speed the spoke blades on the stock wheels almost disappear. Not sure you'd get the same effect with black.chadrob30 said:Not perfect, but you get the idea....I kinda like it. Like an M50 collided with a 109, lol.
Powdercoat is typically available in satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss. Personally, I like the high gloss. While you're at it, paint the final drive. A little Omni9700 PPG works great, cheap and a perfect match for the gloss wheels 8) Most bodyshops should be able to do it for you for $50-$100. The gloss black kinda gives it all a "stealth bling" 8)I would have expected powder coat to be a bit less.. dull... in finish
I really LIKE the 'blacked out' look, (even some of the previous photoshop black engine/exhaust pics)..but I'm trying to keep my $'s in the HP direction for now!tworangerted said:here's one....I don't know crap about photo shop....I did'nt do this,I had a friend,but I'll post it for you.do you want him to do it in gloss black?Any other items?
