  • What grit should I use to prep chrome?

    Hey guys I have some ghetto-fabulous all chrome 22" rims on my suburban that I would like to black the centers out on.

    I believe green or brown scotchbrite should do the trick. (?)

    Also, do you guys think that my hobby gun will transfer enough voltage to do the rims?

    Thanks

      scotch brite pads might work if you are using transparent colors but if you are using solids i would sand the surface with a 320 grit paper. then all the normal steps. degrease powder and cure. as for the hobby gun being able to work it should do the trick. try this shoot the back side and cure. if it is not as good as you want then preheat the wheel and shoot them warm(around 150-200 degrees) then cure as normal.
      when in doubt polish it out/ why replace it when you can refinish it

          Clean the surface and use a phosphate primer, if you scuff the finish your going to see it when coating with translucents. Only scuff up the chrome when using solid colors.
