The sun is really going to liven up the paint. Its a medium silver metallic base with Candy teal. Prepare to be eye raped soon.

Did his best to keep an even spray pattern on the spokes then we rolled the wheel while spraying to get an even coat along the rest of the wheel. As you can see in a couple pics, he made a stand that uses inline skate wheels. We just adjusted it to the wheel and spun away. We used a medium silver fine metallic for the base then mixed the candy paint in with the clear for about 3 good coats. Then finished off with a couple additional coats of just clear to smooth out and cover the color. All in all, it should be pretty strong and not fade for quite awhile.

Thanks! I wanted the wheel to spin while i paint it and figured rollerblade wheels would be the perfect. Took some trial and error to get the geometry right so the wheel was balanced. I'm pretty crafty, it's what I do. Maybe I can sell the wheel stands if anyone plans on painting wheels. Don't think I will be doing that again anytime soon.

And it was a heavy metallic silver, which looks amazing in the sunlight and really brings out the color.

I've been set on doing this to the brembos in the same color since before I bought the car. Just never get happen to get the price for the job for anyone.... I have a shit ton of jdm parts in my luggage in the exact color lol

You should look into how hot the rotors get and if the paint would hold up. I know PPG has a high heat resistance, maybe 3-400 degrees? I could be wrong on that . If it gets too hot you might want to look into powdercoating but I can't imagine them being that bad.
