    powder coating my ssr wheels this weekend

    gonna put some b4 and after pics.. my ssr wheels needed love they were scartched up and 1 wheel has some minor curb rash on .. my friend owns a powder coating shop so i decided to go with a total different color then the original graphite gray.. to a gloss black and a blue lip..
    this pic is of the B4... stay tuned for the after.

    Did you see this thread (link below)? Check out the PVD Black Chrome wheels and the PVD Black Onyx Chrome wheels. There is a place near you that specialized in PVD powder coating. http://www.thechromeshop.com/pvd-coating/

    Good call.

    The high glossy'r and shiney'r the better IMHOP.
    After getting my wheels treated, made me realize what a dead zone the wheels were (for the overall look of the car).

    Looking forward to the After Pics.

    i googled some pics of some vipers and vettes with blue lip and black wheels, and it looks pretty good.. so we will see in my case.

    and to respond to RED DOG, my friend owns a powder coating shop so most likely i would have gone to him in any case to throw business his way.. he is also very good at powder coating and repairing curb rashes and cracks if any.

    Yea mon!
    Dig the glossy black shine on those blades! Definite improvement.

    For the next photos, tell the guy to try and block the glare from that damn ceiling light. So we can check the detail.

    Haha still nope. Must be the way that you are uploading the pic, it is not showing on my phone, just shows a paper clip and says "Attached Thumbnail s". I'll check it out as soon as I get in the office today. Thanks for the efforts though!

    Awesome!
    Looking forward to seeing 'em on the car. All that shine is gonna work well.
    I'll prolly do a similar two-tone for my Vaydor build (later this year).

    IMO the stickers won't be necessary. I'd roll without 'em for a bit.

    Congrats!

    I'd contact SSR and show them what you have going on. Ask them to sponsor your wheels by paying for the powder coat, and you agree to apply the stickers (advertisements). If they refuse I would leave them off - LOL

    good one billy, i think ssr has gone out of business in making wheels for vipers.. not 100% but i dont think ssr makes wheels for vipers anymore. although thats a good idea to have them pay for the paint job lol... i just sent them the email , lets see their response.
