Finishing up the last of the cheesy things Dodge did on the earlier Challengers.

Just a bad paint job. A lot of bare aluminum.



No paint back here at all.



These needs some love too.



Cleaner, goo off, heat gun, masking paper and tape.



Taped the lines from this side, masked from the other.




Ready to paint. Some don't mask the tire. A one minute job with index cards from the dollar store.



First couple of coats.



Ready for clear.









Since this is no longer my daily driver, I am going to let it dry for a couple of days. I will probably wait for warmer weather for the other wheels so it will apply smoother. It still looks way better either way.

Cheers!

Looks great, nice job. I did the same thing about 2 years ago when I still had my stock Alcoa’s.

why bother with plastic dip on the interior of the rim? Why not just apply an actual automotive paint and clear coat it?

^ What these guys said...

You actually had it all prepped for paint.Whole idea of dip is that you don't have to do all that prepping..

Looks good though.
