PD'd my wheels and badges

PD'd my wheels and badges yesterday/today with the wheels and badges still on the truck. Love the look but on the way home from my buddies I had a small portion come off one wheel. Repaired when I got home tonight but I don't know if the cool temps here will prevent the PD from holding.

Oh, also did the black pilar mod last night as well.

Here are some pics:

What process did u use to do the wheels, as far as masking, rotating between coats etc? And would you recommend doing anything differently after the fact? I only ask because I have heard/read they come out better if they are taken off and laid flat...which is a pain in itself...looks great though, nice job.

It was actually pretty difficult while doing it on the truck, but I don't have the time/space/lighting to take them off and do them. I'm happy with the way they turned out but did have to go back and fix a few spots that didn't bond to the wheel totally. Overall happy. Thanks for the input on them.

I would almost have to take the wheel off because I want to have the two look of the lugnuts not being dipped.

Looks good bud. I have done a couple different wheels for friends and such, it's def easier on a flat surface. My wheels have been done for almost 3 months with not one issue. The first time I went through the car wash I was nervous as hell.

How do you do the PD? Is it something I can buy and do at home? Maybe its a lot cheaper than Powder Coating?

Lowes carries it. If you can use spray paint you can use PD. About 7 dollars a can here

Just a heads up to some of you attempting the black pillar mod, there is a reason they are there, Toyota is lazy and doesn't' always coat that area with primer,paint, clear coat as well as the rest of the truck, you may end up uncovering blemishes.

Just thought you should know.

As for the black pilar mod, there is some glue residue underneath but I plan on grabbing a buffer from Wally World this weekend and taking care of that.

Aluminum does not like paint. The paint keeps coming off. Even on factory wheels. The truth is that steel is king when painted. But steel wheels suck. The best way to do this it to remove the wheels, remove the tires, prep the aluminum by mechanical abrasives, bonding primer, and finish coat. Powder coat is best. If you diy: Xim primer with a high performance polyurethane topcoat is your best bet. The paint needs to wrap the edge of the rim and bond all the way around or there will an edge for future peeling. Good luck.
