Looks good man, love the white (can you tell?).

On a side note, what the heck is up with all the neg props in this thread?

Great minds think alike. You win with a picture though.

Cause he painted the tire. If he replaces the tires, like, NOW, we'll like them. We're sensitive like that.

I got that bit. Negative props there is fine. I was referring to the negative props of all the replies to the thread - since when did decent advice qualify for negative props?

That reply has "0" for props. Bitch better know better than to neg prop me. Kinda surprised the Brain hasn't warned him for his neg props, but he's gotten lazy in his old age.

I meant to quote your first post, but it looks like yours have been balanced out now anyway. There are still a bunch with negative though.

I love how bringing up the neg props granted me a neg prop...

I use one strip of masking tape around the wheel and tire and make a cardboard cut out just a smidge bigger than the wheel diameter, place it on top, another quick strip of masking tape and start painting.
