pre and post pic of painted wheels

As some of u know i painted my wheel black. Here are the pics. If anyone wants the step by step of what i did just ask... umm the post pic u will see some spots right near the tire where they are unpainted. I took a very fine brush today and touched all that up so there are no spots like that.

Pre paint wheel ( pic doesn’t show how scratched up they were.)

they did look nice before but i do like them more now. And in that pic before u didn't see the huge scratch.

and chris this is what it cost.
2 cans of black paint= $12
1 can of clear coat= $6
all the sand paper= $5
masking tape=$2
Caliper paint KIT = $15 ( i just bought that cause i wanted red calipers... They give u enough paint to paint like 50 cars)
So everything cost me about $40 i have a lot of sand paper and tons of paint from the caliper kit remaining.
