RE: Re: Supra Show & Go Team!

most of you probably wont know, but my car is getting its new wheels this week (assuming OK tire doesnt screw me around, see retailers forum soon for details)

they are some impul promesh, and needed painting badly.
after stripping them (See review on tal-strip II)
i got the duplicolor wheel paint that you may have seen at canadian tire.
around 7.50 a can seemed a little expensive, but i bought two flat black and two clear gloss.
it sprays nicely, and covers well.
im a little worried about its hold on the wheels, as ive managed to chip a small spot through general stupidity.

it looks great though, very deep black, with a pretty good gloss even before clear coating.
after a good wet layer of clear, it looks very sharp, much like the factory black finish you see on riken/enkie/are mesh wheels.

im happy with the product, my only gripe is the price, but i normally buy no name spraypaint, as it all comes out of the same factories

Same here, I sprayed my bumper today with a can of Toyota red duplicolor paint and I'm very pleased with the results. I doubt i'll even clearcoat it just laid down so nice and glossy. This wasn't the wheel paint but i thought i'd put in a good word for the company, A+.
