    Hi everyone. Just wondering what the best method of painting would be for the rims and exhaust heat shield. Similar to this. Cheers

    • not sure mate see if any one else has done it different ways with success first

    • Best way, chrome strip, sandblast, epoxy primer and 2pack top coat or powder coat. Sandblast and ceramic coat exhaust.

    • You would have to strip the wheel down to just the rim probably to chrome strip. Also better for painting unless you want to paint the spokes or do lots of masking. Cost about $110 per wheel to re-lace a wheel.

    • I had rims sand blasted and powder coated, didn't bother de-spoking, came up sweet. $150 total including refitting tyres and new bearings

    • That's the other option

    • 2 of my mates just used cheap spray paint straight over the chrome after I told them not to haha but it actually stuck pretty well both times and looked really good. I couldn't believe it

    • Do you know what sort of paint

    • Engine enamel is not exhaust paint, might be OK for the heat sheilds

    • Couldn't you just use Plasti? I'm sure that would be fine on the heat shield....ill go look it up.

    • 93.3 deg c ....nah?
