More Chrome And Shiney Chrome

Hey Sunny Sky,looks Great, Ran Out And Tried It Myself, Very Nice! I Will Try To Post A Picture Very Soon Of My Rims After I Stripped The Gray Paint Off The Back. There Is Chrome Under The Gray. The Gray Is Not Even Good Paint, Washes Off With Carb Cleaner And A Gas Rag. They Are Easier To Keep Looking Good, All You Have To Do Is Wipe With A Rag And Detail Spray. Then Painted The Break Disk And Calliper With The Chrome (silver) Spray, I Even Sprayed Down In To The Air Vents, That Stopped Rusty Water From Coming Out. Now That Looks Awsome! There Is A Small Area On Each Rim About The Size Of A Quarter That The Copper Plating Shows Through. To Me No Big Deal. This Was Well Worth The 30 Minutes Per Wheel. I Have Approx 1000 Miles Sense Doing This And They Still Look Great With Only Regular Cleaning. Also Made A Great Windrestrictor For $9,00, Now Thats Cool!!!!! Working On A Sky Name!!

Brake Disk

Not The Whole Disk. Just The Area That Was Painted By The Disk Manufacture To Stop Rust. Its A Poor Quality Paint And Not Even Applied Too Good. And The Reason,, Just To Make Them Look Better, And They Really Do!!
