Looks great, expect for the fact that you painted the bolt in the middle. That tire looks nice, I just have a crappy cheng sheng. I want nice looking ones like perelli ml-75's. Don't forget to get that metallic tire finish, you want the tire to be blue too.

Looks good, nice color...yeah, take a wire brush to clean those threads. Did ya paint it with the tire on? Those Savas are great.

Re: heres the pic

what are those rims of off?

yeah you should have taken apart the axle assembly and regreased the bearings and not painted everything

i dont really like savas, they have a very thin compound

Re: heres the pic

I was lazy. what can i say. and yes i painted with the tires on. I deflated them and took a long rag and stuffed it in between the tires and the rim. it worked fine imo. I took the brakes out and stuffed it with a sock and taped it down. so the brakes are fine. didnt think of the bearings. I am sure they are fine too. I didnt actually try to paint the axle. I just left it on and it got hit a little. so it' not like i was spraying paint directly on the bearings or anything.

Now I have no idea where the rims are from and neither does the guy that sold them to me. They fit on a puch /shrug look pretty sweet though right? I am hurrying through this because i have to have it finished for a photo op on sunday. hehe.

Re: heres the pic

too many paint fumes?

Re: heres the pic

It looks like a cool night sky. I'd pinstripe a pearlescent white stripe down the centers of each spoke. Then gloss it.

What do you think?

Re: heres the pic

I think that is a fantastic idea.

Re: heres the pic

Just don't paint the rim anymore, or you'd lose the star effect.

Re: heres the pic

Wow, one of the best rimjobs I've ever seen

Reminds me of a rimjob I had over summer. But this one looks like it was a better overall experience.

Re: heres the pic

naw this one was hours and hours of endless scrubbing with sand paper. I hope your rimjob didnt involve any abrasive materials!
