Painted my drums

I just got back from Canada, but before I left I changed my rear brake pads and put in a new hardware kit. I put my odl wheels/tires on for the trip for better gas mileage and so nobody stole my new ones so while I put my new ones on I decided to Paint my drums cuz they were bad showing through the black smokes. I painted em with gloss black Rustoleum.
stock wheels/tires = fugly

wander how some bedliner paint would hold up or does it all eventually chip off no matter what you use?

Looks good to me. I think red would have looked good. Might look good on my truck too.

I was debating on doing them today, but I really was leaning more on painting the calipers red... make it look like a set of high performance calipers.... hmm, might have to do that sometime soon!

That may look good but I think I would stick to black looks cleaner IMO

I already got the bike.

98 isnt worth keeping anymore time for it to go..

Its getting torn apart tommarow and parting out and putting back to stock

Drums behind my rims looked good for a week or 2 though lol.
