Neighbors garage became available and made a great paint shop. 4-5 coats black, 2 coats glossifier.
Made a few mistakes. Got some touchup to do around the edges of the rims. And I learned that you wont find the spots you missed until you put the wheels on the car and roll it outside!
Anyway, here they are!
Need to get some pics with direct light on the wheels.







You can't see it in these pics, but the edges around the lip peeled a bit. I'm going to pick up the repair kit and run a bead of thinner around the edge (sponge brush maybe), and use the straw trick to get whats left out of the cans and run a bead of dip along the edge. The tires have a good sized ridge around the bead that makes things interesting. I did the barrels as well, probably needed a couple more coats.

+1 on that wheels look good but car looks way high in the pictures
Just came off the jacks. Wait till the Pedders stuff goes on!

Did you do anything to keep the dip off the tire? Or just sprayed away ?
Lot and lots and lots and lots of tire shine. I used Adam's VRT plus some slippery stuff I had laying around.
