    I have rims that are powdercoated black. They have alot of small scratches/dings where u can see silver through. Does anyone know a good way for me to go over this with spraypaint and touch them up?

    When I painted my stock rims there were always repeated chips!! I used to put a piece of tape over the chip and cut out a shape that was pretty close to the shape of the chip and just spray!! Don't use clearcoat because you'll most likely be touching them up again anyway

    So you can paint over powdercoating without any issues?

    I don't see why not dude I mean I sprayed my steelies and I'm sure the paint would adhere better to the powdercoat than it would to just factory finish

    as long as you sand the powdercoated rims first, you're fine. Use a fine-grit paper, like 800 to sand the rims, so you don't get sand-scratches showing.
