Hey everyone,

I have a new set of steel mopor winter wheels that i'm going to paint and could use a few tips / pointers. The wheels are new, either black paint or powdercoat, however they come from factory. Long story short, i was originally going to have them stripped and powdercoated, but decided i'd try to paint them myself first. I have a specific color i sourced that offers a spray can enamel that i'm planning on using. I'm curious about the rim prep before the paint, like a good cleaner/degreaser, and do i add clearcoat afterwards or just the paint. Here is a pic of the rim and the spraycan i have. Here is a copy of the paint description from the seller,


Our line of Aerosol paints are extremely fast drying enamels produced by digitally matching original paint land rover panels. This process ensures that the paint we offer is the most faithful reproduction to the factory colors that land rover offered. These full size 6.7oz spray cans are a pleasure to use and are fitted with deluxe fan tip nozzles for superior finish and maximum coverage. These are bar none the best aerosol touch up paints available for your land rover. Limestone Unipart (Genuine Land Rover) Aerosol Paint Code: GAP408

Anyway, thanks for any tips

Clean and de-grease the rim as best as possible. Lightly scuff the surface with a Brillo bad 220 sand paper, to give the paint something to grip to, and clean again. Use lite over lapping passes of the paint. After each coat change the direction of the spray pattern. This should help get any spots you missed on the first coat. And repeat till you see a nice even color on the rim. Repeat the spray process for the clear you pick.
