    If you’ve been paying attention you’ve probably noticed that the wheels on the S14 look a bit like garbage! And let’s be honest who doesn’t like a brand new set of wheels. However, I actually like the wheels on the S14 and would like to use them for a bit longer while I save for something new in the future. That said, today we are fixing those scuffed wheels and hopefully I don’t potato them in the process.

Hey guys, it's Zach - I want to point out that I DEFINITELY should have been wearing a proper respirator while painting. ESPECIALLY because I was using activated paint, which makes it much worse for you. I wasn't thinking, and should have been. I'm setting an example for a lot of you guys and I promise to do better on the personal protective equipment. Love you all!!

That's great that you said that, i was coming to the comments to say 2k paint is super bad without proper respirators. Very harmful stuff. Maybe a warning on the Video given that there will be a lot of people getting exited to do this themselves and skip the comments out of excitement.

Pro Tip; Don't forget to turn the spray can upside-down and spray to clean paint from tip, in-between coats. To keep the tip from clogging... Same for storing paint cans after you use them...

You guys really should use gloves when you're using brake clean or any other solvent-based spray. Long-term exposure can cause nerve system damage and you end up getting permeant shaking and trembling in your hands. Edit- removed accidental comma

I'm a powder coater and when I coat wheels I get eye bolts from the hardware store, run it through the valve stem hole and hang from those. It's a cheap and easy way to hang wheels. You can go a step further get threaded rod couplers and bevel one edge with a grinder so it fits in the valve stem hole better.

Always buff the back of the wheel and your hub.. all that rust will cause the wheel not to fit flush on the hub, causing vibrations.. and possibly a wheel comin off

That Spray Max clear is super legit. But caution!!! Spray the clear in light coats waiting 10-15mins between coats, it WONT look wet UNTIL the 3rd to 4th COAT!! The 1st couple coats will look like they are just misted on and isn’t completely covering the part/wheel, wait until the THIRD coat until you lay that sucker on and get that ish WET!! Trust me, it’ll look super pro and all your friends will be a little bit jealous if your mad paint skills but never actually tell you hahaha

Great video, buuuuuut… Have a word with your local powder coaters. Here in the UK my local will chemically strip, blast, repair any damage and then powder coat your wheels for only £25 each (bare wheel up to 18inch). Far better finish, far tougher finish, cheaper. 👍🏻

I've fixed curb rash and refinished those exact wheels using a near identical process for a foxbody running in the NASA Camaro-Mustang Challenge series. We stuck with Duplicolor products and no clear coat for a much cheaper result. We were only going for "race car quality" and not a show quality finish, but they still turned out about 90% of a show finish for less work and expense. I've also used citrus based strippers to completely remove the finish from wheels that had a number of previous low quality finishes applied to them. That is a much more labor intensive process as you have to go over it a couple times with the stripper followed by a mineral spirits wipe down before you go to the sand paper. I found a combination of metal and plastic putty knives, copper pot scrubbers, metal welding brushes, and steel wool work well when removing the normally very thick factory wheel finish when using the strippers. Having completely bare metal was a good way to fully inspect the wheels for cracks. When some of the wheels were stripped, it uncovered a raw as-cast aluminum finish that had a much more course texture than some of the other wheels. It was a cool texture, but it didn't quite match the other wheels we had. So if you stip the wheels, be prepared for what you might uncover, especially if they have been produced by different manufacturers, or at different times by the same manufacturer. Too bad you didn't do it in the video, but did recognize the fact that you needed to up your PPE game, especially when using any type of catylized paint.

65$ a wheel is not bad. But what i have learn in the past. Is to never go cheap on paint or basically don’t go cheap on quality. I’ve learn that the hard way. Best to do things the right way. The first time. Especially when it comes to paint.

Zack Zack Zack, once you do the acetone cleaning I highly highly recommend torching your work piece to warm it up with a blowtorch, it helps with adhesion and speeds up dry/cure times. It's what I use on my aluminum gun parts and they turn out just about as good as anodization

Let's be real, it's gonna be about $100 per wheel to do this yourself if you start from zero tools. Plus, as a total beginner? You prep all four wheels for prep on one day off (assuming you have a second set obviously) second day off you address blemishes, maybe prep for paint if you're lucky. If you work fast by day 3 you're laying down paint and over a weekend finishing them all up. Plus! Paying a tire shop to take off, then put back on the tires. At the end of the day, same cost give or take $20 a wheel as having a professional repair them (if you live somewhere that only costs $140 or so a wheel) but a solid 50+ hour work week of finger tip grinding, back breaking sweaty labor. I'll save my pennies and go to the pros. Big props to you for doing this cause I don't have the fortitude after doing one too many in my younger days lol.

I have used so many layers of touch up to the point where the rash is smooth, I just don't have time to take the tire off and spend as whole day painting. It's holding pretty good! I tried a line of plastidip around the entire lip, and it didn't last a week. I think he did the best you can short of powder, but for $69/rim plus mount and balance, taking it in is the way to go

I love that max 2k clear but trust me do not use without caution. I almost died painting this even with a fan. That stuff goes into your skin and if you happen to breath it by mistake it can get you quick. I lost my voice for a week just by walking into the ventilated room for 10min with no mask well after painting. But with that said it’s the best stuff you can put on in a can.
