Ok apparently I seem to be one of the only guys that likes the sx wheels but anyway I am considering blacking them out. The question I have is that the silver pat of the wheels are plastic and I was wondering how you guys went around painting the wheels?
The easiest way is to just remove the inserts and leave em' off...But if you want to go all black with the inserts you can paint them like I did...Just find a good match to the black on the rim, give em' a few coats then clear coat them...You can see pics of my red ones in my profile
No joke I just did this today, and am still waiting on the clear to cure before I handle it.
I took the inserts out and scuffed them with 400grit followed by 3M Surface Prep Solvent. I used Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Gloss Black, and Krylon Industrial Clear. I don't know how the color match turned out yet, later tomorrow I'll put them on.
20 inserts is a lot to work with but hopefully they turn out
