Turned out great.

Did you scuff it up or anything before painting?

How's your front end coming along?

any high grit sand paper will work. and the advice is to get in between the diamonds good, tape off the handles bc it looks alot better, and what paint to use.

yeah same rims i have. yes you have to get between the diamonds but its not hard at all you just have to scuff it up thats it. i would recommend sanding it a lil so it will help the paint stick
