What would baby
Jesus say of OT?

Question How can I paint the text on the BBS wheels?

Was thinking the stock STi wheel text would look nice if it were black but can't come up with an easy/good way of painting it. If I do it by hand it will probably look like it was painted by hand. Anyone have any ideas on how I can mask around the text easily or use a technique or device that would paint the text nicely?

take a piece of poster board place it on top of the letters and rub a pencil over and it should give you the letters on the posterboard then cut them out very carefully and you should have a stencil that you can use to spray the letters with.


that was a terrible run on sentence but you should be able to get the idea

just spray with really light coats since that kind of stencil isnt going to make the best seal and you dont want to drip onto the rest of the wheel.
