    I finally had a dry day on the weekend where i was not busy, so i got to paint my wheels. i scrubbed with a non scratching scrub sponge. then wet sanded with 800 grit and for the holes i used a die grinder with a flap wheel. i sprayed a couple of coats of primer. then i sprayed graphite duplicolor wheel paint ( which i was thinking it was gonna be like gun metal grey but came out like a textured gunmetal grey which i really like not sure the pics show the texture

    Looks pretty cool. What kind of wheels are those?? I thought about using the graphite when I painted mine but ended up with black. After seeing yours, its my mistake.

    +1 for some nice paint! I'm surprised more people don't do this... That color looks SWEET!
