Re: Peel coat spray paint for rims

Peel coat rims isn't necessarily the way I'd go when it comes to painting rims. There are some pros, and cons. But mostly cons.
Pros: Simply get some goof off and peel the paint off with little effort if you mess up or do not like the color.

Cons: Finish is generally not very good no matter how well you spray it on, and types of gravel or dust can cause it to wear off extremely easily, washing rims can even cause the peel paint to come off.

Here is what you'll need to do if you do decide to go with peel paint however. Get yourself an over spray block from any automotive paint store or hobby store. Clean rims from any loose break dust that may sit on the surface. Then grab yourself some wax and grease remover and coat the rims in it and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Letting the remover sit and penetrate and hard built in dust, grease, left over break dust, etc. from stay on the rims. Next wipe down all the rims till no wax and grease remover is on the rims. If there are any dust or grease left on repeat this process.

Next you're going to want to wash the rims thoroughly to get ride of any left over remover solution. Then scuff the rims with a red scotch bright pad (mirka, 3M, sunmight are some companies that make these).

Scotching the rims allow the paint to stick better.

Now what I'd suggest going a better route would be using some acrylic enamel (Valspar makes a 700 series). Some stores like mine in Green Bay Wisconsin can make it custom in a cup then load it into a spray can. Usually runs around 20$ a can anywhere you go. This has a hardener built into it. So there's no need to clear coat, and you get a protection for the money.

Good luck!
