Painting Aluminium Wheels - Rims

Recommended Posts

Looking for some advise please on Painting aluminium wheels - rims.


Mainly the NSR and slot.it air rims.


Have used cheap as chips cans. I did 2 coats of primer, 2 coats of colour and 2 coats of clear. Paint still flakes off very easily

Quite often aluminum has a thin layer of milling oil on it so wipe the wheels first with lacquer thinners, shellite or acetone. use a white rag,you will see if any oil was on the aluminum.(some experience from my old paint days). On large heavy wear commercial areas we just used sugar soap. - my two bobs worth.
