Bjowett has me diggin' the wrinkle finish after seeing his valve cover. So i got a can planning on using it on my vavle cover when i put a new gasket in. Today was just too nice out, and my center caps looked like shiz, so put the two together and you get what is pictured below. :grinpimp:

I kinda like em'.

I sprayed something similar on the last piece of lexus body armor I had which had not been pulled or covered with liner stuff. I think it looks good.

I did that except I used black plasti-dip I had laying around. I'm still not sold on the black and may do 'em with silver wheel paint...

If I wasn't so lazy...

Not bad! Let us know how it holds up.

I just refinished a set of four (thanks Eric), its a lot of work to strip off the old paint, sand down the caps, paint 3 coats, then apply the gold, then 3 coats of clear coat.

They look good, but thats a bad thing with my luck...because they'll be stolen pretty soon I'm sure.

Might just do the "wrinkle finish" next time.

They're swampers, I'm surprised they don't go halfway around the wheel!

Alex, I'm headed to Uwharrie late afternoon on the 11th, and will wheel that night, and all day saturday w/ my club. Lemme know if you're up for a run.

There'll be Heeps, and Dodges, and Fords, etc w/ me, so come on out. We're camping at Hunt Camp.

Note, if it rains, i won't be there. I hate Uwharrie in the mud, done it enough to not want to go.

PM me if you wanna meet up w/ us.
