    Default The green is gone.

    The green rims are gone, decided to redo them since they were flaking bad from the bad prep job, so i decided to spend more time preping.

    Pictures:

    The old green:


    Starting of stripping:






    Completely cleaned up:
    Found out that my rims were painted over before i even had them, didnt look to bad.




    The New color:

    for someone not running silver/bronze/gold/gunmetal/black/white wheels.

    I preferred the green myself, but original none the less.

    Nice that looks wicked.

    I kinda liked the green, but this new color looks really well done.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    no that was my car before it became flat black.

    dunno who in there right mind would paint a car dark purple.
    It is frustratingly reliable, truly the cockroach of automobiles.

    im taking my time w/ this color, because i kind of rushed the green and it started to flake.

    what ive used so far,

    paint stripper and strong ass pressure washer.

    works good.

    i used less paint stripper and a weaker pressure washer.
    Also used a razor blade to remove some too.

    All done:
