Painted the wheels finally

I finally bit the bullet and painted my wheels, well for now, ive only done 1, but they came out pretty good i feel. i dun goofed on a little bit of it, but i can fix it later or leave it as a reminder that i did it.

This is with the self etching primer

That one turned out better than the one with the camera on the bucket without flash

It matches the truck nicely, i like it better than if i actually polished them really.

And some random photoshops i did of what i think is the best shot of my truck to date.
