Just plan on receiving it a month after you order even if they say you will have it sooner. That way you won't be disappointed! Seems to be the case lately.

Yeah I saw you say something about that when you first bought yours. Not a big deal (I say that now but I'm sure I'll be impatient as hell when the time comes to buy it ) Too bad I can't order it now and when they are ready to ship it I can pay for it haha, wouldn't that be ideal

Ok better late than never right!

Start by wiping down the wheel removing all dirt and grease.

Then start tapping off the pockets:



Lay strips of tape along the edge, then get a knife and run it along the edge of the pocket cutting the tape clean.





Once all the pockets are taped, you can start sanding.





After you have sanded everything, give it a good wipe. I like to use isopropyl alcohol. Flip the wheel around and tape the inside so you wont have any paint blow through.



Depending on how much prep you really want to do, mask off the rest of the wheel.



Now start painting! Give it a coat or two of adhesion promoter and after that dries the primer.



I did 3 light coats of primer and let it dry. Then 4-5 coats of base.



After you spay the last coat of base, start removing the tape gently. Once the tape is removed give the wheel a close look. You will probably find spots where the paint needs to be removed. Depending on how dry it is, used a knife to gently scrape it clean or a toothpick dipped in alcohol.



Let the paint thoroughly dry and then start the clear coat. I did 6 coats of high gloss to give the wheels a nice shine. You apply the clear over the face and the pockets together to ensure you wont have any chipping along the paint edges. After the last coat of gloss, remove the rest of the tape and let thoroughly dry. Once dry you are finished! Sit back and enjoy your new wheels

Yeah i like how it looks I just wish it was thicker and a little darker like the rest of the factory badges. But as far as the design I like it.

Went out muddin again today. Got a few pics and even a video this time. They are crappy cell pics and definitely don't do it justice on how dirty it actually is.









And the video:

^^^ Looks like you had a good day of muddin!

Somebody needs to come up with a "self-cleaning" mod cause that would be handy.

BTW - be careful with your speeds through any measureable water - any of it gets in your intake
at heavy throttle and you could hydrolock = BADNEWS.

It was a lot of fun. And yeah it wasn't nearly deep enough to have to worry about hydrolock.

My buddy has a much nicer camera than my cell phone and got a good still shot. First run through the mud hole!
