I really want the old Gold back, so I am thinking of coating these ones.
I am finding it really hard to find a color match in powder coating. Does anyone know how the original BBS are coated in the gold, is it anodized or something?
Anyways, I either find a good powder match, or paint.
If I get them stripped, how would I go about painting with the Grim speed BBS to make them look shiny and new. Is there a powder coat clear that I can have put over the top to make them really tough? I just want them to hold up....
you have to choose paint or powdercoat. You cant powdercoat a clear over any type of paint, the paint will kinda melt off and ruin everything. Find your nearest location that does powdercoating and show them a picture of the BBS gold and I bet they can match it up!!
