Painted My Rims Today.....

Used a kit from Griot's Garage www.griotsgarage.com

Includes a special cleaner, zink undercoat, silver metallic spray, and clear coat. Was very easy to do. Didn't unmount the tires, just masked everything and had at it. I never liked black rims on any bike.....
I also painted the fork tubes......

Looks good, I like it. More sporty looking, imo.

Looks nice! I prefer the black wheels on mine because it is the all black bike. But on the blue it looks sporty 8)

Cool modification!

How much did it cost and how much time? Anything you would do different and any tips?

Griots has great stuff (kind of pricey, but worth it). :wink:
