    Default spraying my own wheels. possible photoshop?

    next weekend im gonna have a go at doing my own wheels NOOOOO do i hear you say??? just wondered if anyone has got any pointers on types of alloy wheel paint i should use. i know i should just get them redun properly but my budget just wont allow for it. so me and my mate who has got a little experience with spraypaint are gonna have a go. i was just gonna do them in the normal silver colour. but i have thought maybe white? or any other ideas. if someone could maybe photoshop them white for me just to make my mind up would be great. thanks for any input.

    its all in the prep work - make sure the surface is free of drit grime and especially road salts and grease then key the surface with wet dry -they may need priming if your changing the colour so this is also a consideration ..if you do then once dried you need to flatten the finish back down and then clean them again and then lots of light coats of any car paint colour that you want to use ...and leave it to dry thorougly especially in this colder damper climate

    then if its a metallic colour you will need to flatten the surface again with wet dry and then as above wash and dry and then several coats of laquer to finish the job = again leave em for a couple of days to dry especially if you have removed the tyres first !

    heres an idea on what to do

    im not suggesting the colour on yours though
