perfect day for this

Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:24 am

Well it is an almost perfect day to paint. I've got my new rims drying outside now in near perfect conditions. I say near perfect since the breeze picks up every once and a while so I've got to time my spraying. Very happy with the results. I took off the wheel weights too. Man they are heavy and awkward to handle alone but I managed ok without dropping or smashing any body parts. Cleaned them up too and gave a coat of paint. I'm out of town next week but after that it's off to the tire shop to take the tires off the old rusty rims and put on the new rims. I was going to load the new ones but think for now I'll just leave them without any liquid in the tires. Will also clean up and paint the discs that the wheels bolt to. I plan on seeing if the old rims can be refurbished and I'll either hang on to them or try and sell them. The fair is coming up fast and I'd like to get all this done. Should be able to do that. Here is a photo of the rims.
