Hey, I know there have been threads like this before, but I need intructions.
I want to paint my rim, and am getting the materials today, but need to now what to get and how to do it. I am planning on painting the rim lime green to go with my orange frame.
Are you just spray painting it? If you are it’s gonna take like 5 coats to stay on. And are you wanting to keep the wheelset complete, and be able to paint it? If so, then it will take time to tape over every spoke, and tape & plastic or newspaper to cover the tire.
Seriously, take 5 minutes and take off the tire. If you cant pull it off when its deflated, take it to your LBS and get them to take it off with some tire levers. O yeah, also take off your frame so you dont get paint on that.
Actually, my dad and I just got the wheel and tube and rim strip out, so its fine. Right now I am taping up the spokes and crank, and then I am going to get the paint. What color would you guys recomend if my frame is orange?
K, I couldn’t get any powdercoat, and I can’t really lace a wheel AT ALL.
I got metallic teal spray paint, with some protective clear paint as well. I am in between my 2nd and 3rd coat right now… will post pics in a little bit.
