Thanks for making this thread Jarrod. I followed the procedure you outlined and the results were pretty good.
Here's what I required:
Aircraft Stripper x 3 cans (home depot)
Duplicolor Adhesion Promoter x 1 can (o'reily's)
Rustoleium Fast Dry Sandable Primer x 1 can (home depot)
Duplicolor High Performance Wheel Paint x 3 cans (o'reily's)
Duplicolor High Performance Wheel Clear x 2 cans (o'reily's)
400 grit sand paper x 1 sheet (home depot)
scotch brite pads x 2 pads (home depot)
spray paint can sprayer holder thingie (home depot)
note cards, small x 2 packs of 100 (walmart)
note cards, large x 1 pack of 100 (walmart)
masking tape (walmart)
Total Cost: Appx $75 (plus I'll need to get them rebalanced)
Labor: All day
Hard to get a good picture since they're metallic and the sun is up high, so it washes out. I'm sure the camera can take a better picture if the operator were competent enough to take it out of automatic.
What looks like overspray on the tire isn't.
Overall, this is not something I'd do to a set of new looking wheels to simply change color, as laying paint down out of cans in the driveway leaves something to be desired, however it's a very good procedure to clean up wheels that are getting long in the tooth.
I have them "baking" in the driveway now. I'll give them a few days then take them for a balance before putting them on the car. But they'll look pretty good.
