    I roughed them up with 420 grit,cleaned with rustoleum wax and grease remover, sprayed with 2 coats of duplicolor adhesion promoter, 3 coats of duplicolor perfect match MGM paint, and 4 coats of duplicolor perfect match clear.

    Krylon Fusion flat black. It's almost a perfect match to the black on the grill.

    hows your wheels holding up with painting them and how'd you do them. I was going to do my wheels but don't want to do plasti dip. I'd actually like them to last.

    They have held up good, no chips whatsoever.

    I sanded them with 420 grit, cleaned with wax and grease remover, sprayed with self etching primer, and then painted.
