Thought I would put this here.

Hope it helps some folks out there. To think that I was willing to pay (handsomely no doubt) the dealer to get the sport wheels during negotiations. Thankfully, in hindsight, it was the only concession they would not agree to because for about $20 I achieved the same effect which is also reversible. :act030:

That was an awesome video, Black Knight! They came out great.

We have another member that converted his wheels to Sport wheels:

On a side note I think it's really cool that you shared this on YouTube. Anytime I run into something I can't do at my house or on my truck/motorcycle there's always a video of someone who's already done it on YouTube.

I saw those kiddy toys in the background. Did you tie them up inside for 8 hours while the paint was curing.... and again for each subsequent wheel!! LOL
I remember how mine used to find their way to wherever they could do the most mischief! They love that "ooh that's different" kind of stuff. I'm seeing little finger prints now.........

Thanks M.N.E.! I can't agree how many times I've been schooled via YouTube. I actually discovered Plasti-Dip through YouTube. Many hours late at night I spent in bed with earbuds in as not to disturb my sleeping wife while I watched people lay down paint. I just thought there weren't too many people highlighting this particular application technique. At least, not to my satisfaction. So, I made a video the way I would want a how to video.

That's freaking hilarious. Thankfully my wife ran interference all day for me. I would only add to the scenario her shaking her head in the doorway with a look like "Are you done playing now?".

BTW I just thought I would share with you the respirator you are wearing is particulate not a vapor I am pretty sure. You might want to look into that before you do too much more.

More scary are some of the other videos around there with painters using no mask at all. Naturally, it would be best to do this outdoors, or in a very well ventilated area.

Well, possibly. It depends on what you are spraying. Some stuff is very damaging to the environment and atmosphere.

That's true also, but if it is sold over the counter for consumer use outdoors 'should' not be an issue and they would have passed any regulations to that fact.
Even then I would certainly refrain from using it in a closed environment, where flammability could also be an issue.

But if it is a product intended for industrial use then it was designed to be used in a closed ventilation system like those used in paint booths.

Of course it is important to read the directions/cautions accordingly for the specific product.

Nope, but I wish I knew a few weeks ago. I was in the area for a week in August. I would've checked them out. As it was I enjoyed the "diner" experience that they have back there. Amazingly vast menus.
Mine is just an initials thing.
