Just thought I would share my previous pics, top pics shows how it looks now, previous pics were the first two stages. They have held up well for 6 mos., have two minor chips that someone caused when they took off the center caps at the tire place I think.

Take a look at the link below for how they turned out.

great job on the rims and on the detail in the posting. after reading your posting i have been thinking of painting the stock rims but wasn't sure how they would look so i went and got some masking tape and some black duct tape just to see what they would look like. ya ya i know that's redneck but i didn't want to mess up the wheel for now if i did not like it but i think it will look OK what does every one else think???

i would paint up until the tabs on the centerhub (like you did with the spokes), then it would look awesome!
