Blackwatertaco's build and black out...Painted Gulf states wheels.

Well I finally did it...I got off my ass and painted my Gulf States wheels. Got my new Destiny Dakota M/T 265/75/16. Painted my Headlights (I got a few scratches putting it back together. And Painted my Toyota emblem.
Next up is to paint my badges and my back bumper.

Enjoy...















Now here is a "stock" photo....

Took me about 12hrs. to sand, Primer, Paint my wheels...Lots of waiting time. I used 180 grit sand paper
3 coats of primer on each rim
4 coats of Krylon black paint...30min dry time inbetween

I didn't paint the lugs cuz I like the contrast.

Now I hope it hold...I drove though some rain on the way up to Ft. Worth Yesterday evening and the wheels still look awesome.

I did my BHLM lastnight with my uncle...It was a pain in the ass...Grrrr. And I got a couple scratches on the bezel...But it looks fine.

THe new tires are nice...But they float all over the road. Nice Hummm to it doing about 70mph.

when i first switched to AT's from the stock tires, i had this happen too. it was because the shop didnt air them up enough. they were at 29psi and i thought i was going to lose control on the highway at 65mph. i now have them up between 38-39psi and they are great. i notice that once the tire pressure drops below 35, the tires like to follow the grooves in our crappy california highways a lot more. just something for you to consider..

nice job on the rims, looks good.

Nice! you need to post pics of your sub and amp too.
Also to fix the fogging you need to take the headlights apart again. Clean them and silicone the hell out of them. I used a whole tube of silicon caulking on mine and they haven't fogged yet(knock on wood).
Put em' in the oven at 200degrees(for the love of God, turn the oven OFF before you put them in there lol) for 10mins and they'll be good to go either taking them apart or putting them back together.
