When is a gold wheel not a gold wheel?????

when its a grey one !!!!

Take a roll of masking tape and apply like so -



then add



then taking your time apply as below.











Were only a quick job to see if i like em grey will put on front and rear an put pics up tomorrow to see what i/u think.

P.S. i know they aint shiny yet but its only basecoat no laquer an to be honest dont want this one too good coz need a parada spec 2 on it yet so will paint proper after that, then when this set of tyres are knackered will probably sell these and get some different wheels.
