    So I have finally decided to paint my wheels. I've been wanting to either paint or powdercoat them since I got the truck, but powdercoating is too much work what with removing the tires, the time and expense to have them PC'd, and then remounting the tires. I figure I should be able to paint all 4 myself over the course of one day easily.

    My current living arrangements don't really afford me a place to store jackstands, so I don't want to buy a set just for this and then give them away. If anyone in the DFW area has a set of 4 jackstands they'd be willing to loan (or rent?) me for a day or two sometime; I will pick them up, return them, and be most grateful. :eek:

    Where are you in DFW I'm painting mine soon, and it's just an extra set of wheels, so all jackstands will be available

    I figured I'd use my dad's driveway, Colleyville/Grapevine area. Weatherford is a little bit of a drive but it wouldn't be too far. I normally drive through there on my way to my deer lease.

    If you're painting yours soon too maybe we should just get a case of beer and call it a mini-mod day? :p

    ^If you guys don't meet up I have a set of 4 jack stands in my garage you could use. They're in Colleyville too.

    Well I just ordered some Bilstein 5100s the other day as well, so I guess I will be PMing you to borrow your jackstands in the near future ItalynStylion.

    I figure I'll paint the rims and between coats I can monkey around trying to figure out swapping shocks. :D

    It occurred to me after the fact that I have wheel weights on there, obviously I'll paint them, but what to do about the rim underneath them? Are they easily removed and replaced if I mark their location? Or should I just not worry about it and keep the spray can for when I get new rubber down the road?
