thanks for the compliments guys.. it was actually easy to do. The biggest problem I had was masking off the tires:doh:
Vaseline to the rescue:LOL:
Just coated 2" of the tire closest to rim with it, done!:smileup:

Blitz Black is what I used

Looking good! :smileup: you prep'd the rim properly before spraying I hope. Did you clear coat it afterwards too?

thanks man, yes I used 400 wet/dry sandpaper to get the chrome dulled up. Wax and tar remover before/after sanding. Typically when Ive painted chrome I use self etching primer, lays down well on chrome, but since this is plastic.. I used plastic primer which Ive never used before. No I didnt clearcoat it, denim black is what I was going for, clearcoating it wouldve made it look like a poor job on painting it gloss black.
