Rims!! Only a tease for now

That hopefully you will like



BANG!! That's your only tease










OK I can't be that much of an a$$
















Maybe one more





This is we I'm at right now. Washed, sanded, cleaned, primed, 1 coat of Duplicolor Engine Gloss Black. I'll be putting another coat then clear. Only the rear rims for now since I don't have time to do all 4 before my golf game at 2:30 so the other 2 will be done tomorrow and pics intalled will be tomorrow as well.

When I put the clear should I let the paint dry first or put the clear right after paint?

Feedback/comments welcome!

Looks good so far, hope you have touch up paint handy next time you get them balanced.

Looks good, just get them balanced on the inside of the wheels and you wont have to worry about wheel weight marks
