CUSTOMIZING WHEELS STEP 2 & 3

You cant see step 3 in the pictures, its a metalic clear coat, very subtle but pops nicely in the sun

Well do to rain i wont be working on the truck today, but i did manage to remove the tape BEFORE the rain came in.

and as i was afraid the tape pealed sections of the black off. I have no clue as to why the black didnt hold in some areas while it held great in the majority.

but i did take some pictures, they look amazing Black/red

you need to acid etch the aluminum to clean it and prepare the surface for paint to insure a good bond

so just sanding and cleaning with acetone would not be enough?

It could help. im no paint expert. phone up the help line of your paint maker and get some real info. It maybe that the paint isnt good for what your trying to do. I had my 98 sled bumpers painted with endura and all we did was rough them up and it held for the 2 years i owned it
