    I would recommend adding a primer step after sanding and prior to the paint. Clear primer would be best.

    Stupid STI Limited Enkeis are so dirty and aren't looking good anymore. I think its time to make them Gunmetal and turn them into my winter rims

    Looks good, Andy; I did basically the same thing when I painted my WRX stockers.

    how "thick" is the dust? I'll get the name of this stuff I have (spray) that's beast on brake dust.. will dull painted surfaces though, but if youre painting them, that isnt an issue.

    I used this stuff and a plastic puddy knife, along with brass bristle brush with light pressure, and cleaned the embedded dust off wheels I bought a year or so ago..

    My brake dust is like a powdercoating on it


    Seriously, I had to use the rough side of a dish sponge to get anything off, using heavily concentrated Simple Green...and a 5500psi powerwasher...the ish is tough!!!

    curious- is this possible to do with the wheels still on the car? you can probably mask the tires and everything with them still mounted, no? except you'd probably paint the lug nuts too

    This reminds me of a thread on the Bimmerforums where some retard wanted to spray paint his calipers, so he sprayed everything in the wheel well red, including the rotor but not limited to the spring, struts, and all the lines and control arms...seriously what a retard. I searched for pics, but couldn't find any. I have never seen someone get flamed so much for a stupid thing to do, but someone that dumb deserves it.

    is it easy to do a lip? I have 2005 WRX rims [has a dip that can be apinted inside]. any smooth way of doing that w/o overspray? I want to make my cims like Time Attacks, lol

    preparation is key. Take your time with masking, paying attention to detail, and they'll turn out ok.
