Finished painting the other 4 Ravines. Little tip, I used 1/8 fine line tape (the stuff they use to mask out flame jobs on hot rods.) It makes it a breeze to mask the curve of the wheel. The only cutting you'll need to do is trimming the excess between the long and short gaps.

Even though they're not ravines, definitely liked the look of a black rim with a silver lip so i tried painting my extra canyon wheels using this as a guide



One of them next to the original waiting to be painted



sorry if the pics are small, took em with a cell.

Looking good! Can't agree more about the silver lip and black rim.

Yeah, I'm waiting to see someone do a Moab with a silver lip. It would be a little more difficult I think because there is no factory line to follow. But I think it would look good.

Those Ravines look so nice painted. I often wish I hadn't sold mine.
