Painting my race wheels… did the first color (a few shades more grey than gunmetal black) and now I’m ready to mask off the lip to do it a different color.
I have amazing patience, so I know I can do it by hand, but anyone have any ideas on how to more quickly tape off a good circle?
The wheels are (picture taken before painting started):
get vinyl cut. thats what i suggested to psychopjv for his rims
or use thin 1/4" or 1/8" tape to get the intial circles then uses bigger tape and paper when it allows
Bring them over, bring me some (decent) beer (like a growler of spaten optimator from McGregors) and I’ll do them for you. Call the cell, I’m headed outside.
Yeah, that’s how I was gonna do it.
You’re gonna look so cute working with pink spraypaint If I can find a car to get them down to you in, I’ll give you a call.
take regular painters tape (thicker goes faster) and tape off horizontally accross the wheel. then use a razor and cut out wherever you want paint to touch. thats how i did the wheels on the Camaro.
3M makes a vinyl tape (blue) is very plyable and easy to run without wrinkles. Similar feel to electrical tape. Can find it at automotive stores or Urban Paint in Tonawanda.
I used that for my leading edge:
then just used masking tape to do cover the rest:
lots of little square stickers will work ok… but the vinyl tape will be good like josh said
