wow..that looks great! i'm gonna put mine on tonite after work..think i can squeeze em in w/o having to remove the rim? i'm on stock 17's...so i think there might be enough gap in btwn the spokes...1Noless said:I applied numerous coats of G2, then applied the stickers. No clearcoat needed. Plus, I heard some people say that their stickers started peeling when they applied too much clearcoat.
Here's a pic of mine.
I did mine a day after I painted the calipers and the rims were still off.brc said:..think i can squeeze em in w/o having to remove the rim?
With the wheels on you can put the rear stickers on easily, but I had a hard time doing the fronts with them on. I messed up one and it was a pain to peel it off. I say remove the front wheels. I also used G2 paint and no clear coat and they are fine after 4K miles.1Noless said:I did mine a day after I painted the calipers and the rims were still off.brc said:..think i can squeeze em in w/o having to remove the rim?
You're gonna be mad at yourself if you mess them up. I would say remove the wheels first.
Good luck and post pics when you're done.
I bought the caliper paint from a speed shop- then my mechanic took em off and painted em for me for $50 CDN..so all in all a good deal, and professional quality job! i'll post pix as soon as i get the stickers on...Astr0LuX said:I effed mine up real bad. Got too anxious. I didnt let the paint dry enough. The i sprayed the clear coat on too soon and the stickers started to curl. Ive gotta redo them.
brc: did you remove your calipers to paint them..or did u just tape stuff up?
Hey man, do you have any pics of your wheels with the painted calipers?GraphiteSportDesign said:definitely remove the wheels. I had to remove the rear ones too b/c I have the SportDesign 11-spoke wheels.
