I originally had my Panasports painted wrinkle finish black. They started to peel, so my Pop stripped the wrinkle finish and painted them. Now that's starting to look a little yucky.

I plan on having someone professionally polish them when I have enough money, but in the meantime, I would like to repaint them gold. What paint should I use?

I believe I have some pics of the wheels on here that I posted years ago, I'll try to find them and/or take some new ones to show everyone.

Thanx!

My suggestion would be to powdercoat them. Done properly, the coating is very durable. There are a variety of colors. Mask off the rims and then polish them. You can obviously pay someone or you can buy a cheap gun from harbor freight and using an old kitchen oven you'll be in business. The results are the same and powdercoating is actually quite easy and foolproof.

Powdercoating is the way to go. I had my Simmons 16 x 7 wheels powdercoated, and it only cost $35 per wheel. Far more durable than paint and, as mentioned before can be done in a variety of colors. Steve

A good powedercoating shop should be able to polish the lip for you. I've had several 4 and 6 cyl. cam covers done in red or silver, and then had the ridges polished. It costs a little extra for that, but it does look good. Steve
