Ok, last weekend I painted Lil Goats yellow, this weekend he helped me prep mine and I painted 5 coats of blue and 2 clear

Taped off windshield and disasembled a little bit behind seats and taped off the back of the car. Taped off the rims and then wet sanded everything with 400 grit. The rims were a complete pain in the but to paint due to all of the angles.













Car ready to paint



Tim had a great idea to cut carboard to fit inside rims from the underneath side to prevent overspray.

I'm not quite sure how I could accent the center caps with red since they aren't the pontiac centers

I personally prefer the stock look, but you did great work with the paint job. The wheels look great. Nice ride!!!! :cool:

I took the Kappasphere logo disk that went in the center cap (Was silver & black) and gave it a couple shots of a red transluscent, then a three coats of clear. Looks like they came that way!

Okay Joe .... paint the LETTERS (or at least *SPORT*) RED clear coat the entire cap then re-insert. That should be just enough REC to bring it out! :yesnod:

Deepbluegxp is out cruising the mountains, but it can be done in 1 very long day. It is the masking that takes forever, the painting goes pretty quick. The car is actually easier to do than the wheels were.

I started masking about 8am on friday. Took about 2 breaks, started sanding about 2 pm, painting about 3:30 pm, finished painting about 6:30 pm. Lilgoat took most of the photos and helped mask and sand oh ya, supervised :lol:

Thanks again LilGoat.
