No I did not do it the same so to speak....I sprayed the rims black acouple weeks ago then this past weekend I masked off all the black and sprayed the lip. I need to touch up alittle bit after i get new tires and balancing....i painted over the weights on the outside and they will be moved to the interior of the rim so im gonna have to shoot the black and red 1 more time. Atleast this way I will be sure theres no imperfections. I <3 how they turned out, in the sun expecially against the blue they are just eye candy I actually sent you a PM on scoobymods asking how you kept such a solid line around the lip......so i just masked it off, also I didnt do as much of the lip as you did. I didnt want any on the face of the rim.
lol. Well thank you. I'm glad someone else tried it out. sorry about not getting back to you on scoobymods, i almost never log in there.

it actually looks like you did the same with the lip in terms of how much you painted red. As far as I can tell from your pic, we covered the same amount in red. Basically the lip itself and then that little "valley" between the lip and the face of the wheel.

I used a brush to keep the lip nice and straight, but that was definitely not fun.
