So I picked up a full set of 5 canyons from a friend for free thought I'd have some fun what y'all think

I like the color contrast. Nice job

Looks good. I wanted to do that to my canyons, but they are too messed up.

How did you tape off the center caps to paint them?

tjsport99 06-15-2013 05:37 PM

I popped them out and taped moved with masking tape and used a xacto knife to trim around the letters you could use a razor blade just bigger than the knife

I'm liking the look of them

I just had mine powder coated-can't wait to put them back on.

What kind of paint did you use?

I prefer the Ravines over the Canyons, but those are some Canyons I'd love to have on my rig! Well done! :thumb:

I cleaned with acetone then put down two coats of self etching primer and then just flat black automotive enamel. The silver parts I just masked off before spraying

These look good! Can't wait to see these on your rig! I am tying to decide if I want to get my mint condition canyons powder coated. I can't seem to find any aftermarket 15x8 wheels that I really care for. Just really wish the canyons had 4-4.50 backspace so I wouldn't need spacers for my 35's to stay off my control arms.

I understand that I'm only running 31s so I shouldn't have any issues it will be about a week or so before I get them mounted vacation time
