    To anyone who has painted their wheels themselves, how do you make the silver lip so it keeps straight? I've searched through the boards for anything I could think of about this subject so I think I've seen a fair amount of the threads on this subject, but I never found anyone who included a How To or any details about how they marked the silver lip so it remains straight and even across the whole wheel.

    Any information is appreciated.

    Here are a couple shots from Ghost96Romeo's build. He's got, at least in the close up, what looks like a pretty close to perfectly round lip marked off.
