Bedlining wheels

So here it is, my write up cherry getting popped.

I've always liked the look of the black wheels on a black car, but I've left the outer ring silver.
Pretty easy, treat it like any other surface, clean, mask, sand, clean, spray. I used three coats on mine with the first one being super
light, and a fourth one from farther away for
better texture.



the can recommends 150-180 grit, that took too long so I went with 80, I figure it'll give me more to hold on to.

once this dries, I sprayed it from about 12-15" away for better texture. I'll be loading pics once on the jeep.
Post some pics up if you've done this, I want to see how it's holding up.
Also, I'm curious to see how much of a difference using finer or coarser sand papers makes.

that's pretty smart on leaving the outter ring silver.

I think its funny watching people paint the wheels black and then realize that when they go get the wheels balanced they will then have to touch it up every time they get the wheels balanced

Plus I think the silver ring creates a nice contrast between wheel and tire.

Yeah I think so too. I'm going bedliner crazy, I'm doing the chopped fenders, front bumper, sill guards, and rockers, front grille, and eventually the tub. If I had the cash I would have done powder coating, but at about $7 a wheel with the bedliner, I'll stick to that.

Ive been wanting to do this for a while now too. Leaving the rim around the edge makes it look so much better IMO.

More importantly when they get rock rashed the silver ring hides it better, otherwise your rims either look like crap or you have to touch them up after every wheeling trip.

They look good

But then again, I'm kinda partial to the look

it's actually only slightly cheaper to get the gallon can, I think walmart carries the rust oleum stuff. The spray is nice for the texture though

The beadliner with the rings look great! And easy to touch up. I was using an airbrush and Duracoat to keep mine looking good now it is just flat black rattle can!
