This car had a red wheel originally but it had a major case of the gummys so I stuck a good black one on that I had. My good friend Spencer Phillips sent me a red one for free. I had him leave it out in the sunlight over last summer to see if the vinyl was stable enough to make it worth shipping. Didn't really want to paint a black one red cuz when the paint starts to come off would look crappy. The hub was pretty rusty from being outside so blasted er up. The wheel had a couple bad gouges in it so filled with 2 part filler

Wiped the wheel down with acetone and then alcohol before a couple coats of adhesion promoter (glue) Many light coats of SEM Firethorn Red and a couple coats of low luster clear
