Tip of the day #38

Tip of the day, painting wheels.

If you are painting rims of any kind, mount the wheels first, but don't "Bead" them. Just put the tire on and don't fill it up with air. Then cover the tire with masking paper and paint the rim. Tear off the paper and fill the tire or tube with air. No scratches and it will look like a million bucks.

Brian

Great one Brian, You must have read my mind.

Perfect timing!! Thanks.

You have to give credit to "Whizzer Nick" one of my first employers, it is his idea.
