Or you can just wipe the grease off with a old rag and let the elements wear it off.

|spyjeep0520||also a little faster way to paint something if you dont like all the tapping you can get an old glove and some grease and wipe it over whatever you dont want the paint to stick to and spray away wait till the paint is good and dry and hard goto the carwash and spray off the grease|

I only want it to last through summer, after that I'll probably buy the other 4 cragar wheels.
As for the weights, I wasn't sure how to take them off

x2 on the weights.
i don't foresee the paint sticking well to that chrome finish, but time will tell.

|sonofabeach||That looks like the way I did it. Good job.|
|03-24-2010 03:11 PM|
|schnutzy||looks good there vaultzz. that is actually how we did it in the shop when i was learning to paint.|
|03-24-2010 03:07 PM|
Another thing is to smear Vaseline or even Pam (so I've been told), or one of the gooey tire dressings on the tire, then the paint won't stick to it.
You should have removed the weights, and reapplied 24-48hrs after the paintjob...other than that looks great.
Lets see em on the Jeep!

How to Paint Your Wheels Without Removing the Tire
Well I've been wanting black wheels for a while but $350 was a little much... So I took Creation into my own Hands!
(I'm not sure were to put this permanently)
Heres the List:
Rust /paint removing brush-drill attachment
Your Choice of Wheel Color Paint
Clear Coat Finisher
Clean the wheel like crazy. I used a power washer then brake cleaner, then the power washer again. Followed by using the drill and rust/paint removal device to get rid of all the surface imperfections. Then towel dry and let sit in the sun for about an hour.
Cover the whole tire with painters tape(or other tape if you prefer) and then cut out the wheel area so that theres a bout half a centimeter of the tire showing (to make sure that the paint gets on the outer edge of the wheel)
Also cover the valve with the tape if you want to, I did
Make sure that the wheel doesn't have any dirt or anything sitting on it. Now begin with the Primer, I did 3 coats, one every 30 minutes.
Now for the color. I did 4 coats (1 every hour), 3 will probably work but I kept finding little spots that I didn't hit thick enough.
Apply the clear coat. I used 2 coats, 1 every 40 minutes
Afterwards, carefully remove all the tape, and admire your work!
Whatcha guys think?
