Re: (kish0000)

Hows the finish on the wheels holding up?
I used that paint on my grille surround and I have a huge chip...maybe I just didnt let the clear set long enough

no spacers, i'm thinking about putting some 15's on the rear

ah, ok, I asked because of this shot:

That's a photshop then? No way OE rs4s come out that far without serious spacing.

Re: (AWCx)

i took the stock shift boot off, got some tracing paper, and traced each of the triangles that make up the boot, then cut them out as templates.
then i took the templates laid them on the fabric and cut them out, lined up the edges and sewed it all together
the hardest part was lining up, or atleast trying to line up the pattern
since the material isnt very stiff, i put it on over my stock boot, and just wedged the top of the material in between the plastic gromet on the boot and the shift knob.

the finish is holding up great on 3 of the wheels, one of them is flaking
i think it was bad prep or something
if i did it again, i would go heavier on the color and the clear coat
you deffinatly have to let the clear cure, i tried to mount the tires on them the day after i painted them, and as soon as i touched them with the bead breaker is flaked off, so i put tape on to protect, and went to take the tape off and the tape peeled the paint right off. so i let the other ones sit for like 3 days, and everything went smoothly http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
