Matt Black Wheels

12 posts in this topic

Well, its been awhile since I said something on here so i thought id share my pride and joy after a little bit of light modification. After finally coming to terms that i couldn't afford a new set of wheels i decided to give them a lick of paint. Not wanting to blend into the sea of corsas with their gloss black wheels i went for a matt black finish instead. Over all im pretty impressed with the out come.

Im lucky enough that my dad has a spray booth at work so we got them done on his dinner break. They were sprayed using a gun but im sure if you used a can it wouldnt be much different. As with anything it'll only be as good as the preparation ;)

Look very good, like a satin effect to me, not sure which is better, gloss or yours, I like both versions but yours are more unique but maybe not for long!! As you have put a different twist on the black effect I am sure there will be many copies shortly.

Cheers.
