Painted Center Caps
 
2 Attachment(s)
So today I did the first step in painting my wheels, I got the ceter caps painted. I didn't do a very good job off cutting of excess tape so I'll have to do a little touch up. What do you guys think? Next is painting the teardrops black.

Looks really good. I've been thinking of painting the teardrops also. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Great work!

not a fan, sorry

PW01 08-24-2008 03:41 AM

I think it looks great, and I have the same rims. What to do next weekend ...

98liftedranger 08-24-2008 06:10 AM

Not really a fan of them on the stock wheels. But maybe if they were with a black rim or even a black and chrome rim.

Dangit Jeremy. You know...i'm going to have to find all of mine and do mine today! Looks great man!! can't wait til the wheels get touched.

Rolldogg 08-24-2008 06:26 AM

Looks good. It'll look even better with the teardrops painted black too. Can't wait to see the end result pics.

What you want all his stuff for?

I am not diggin it at all. Paint the wheels and then take some pictures and then my opinion will likely change.

sullys_ranger 08-24-2008 11:40 AM

Honestly it looks better than I thought it would! Paint the teardrops and maybe itll pull everything in more. Or better yet, tape off the teardrops and paint the wheel black, that would be really different

Shane is single-handedly trying to form a Ranger parts dept. at his place... he'll take any and everything then re-distribute it... it's like a take one-leave one program... haha
