Red Kevlar is a special order very specific color with a 500ft min order, but I got really lucky and got 5 yards.

In my best Texas Ranger accent "Looks like the end of the roll for you, Lady!"

Thanks for all your updates Jenn. As usual you have am attention rivetted.

Size does matter, so I'm making a minicab for my wife who is only 140cm tall. Unsure whether to base the art on Puzzle Bobble, Tetris or Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon. Hmmm.

Hey Jen Jen, since you seem to be particularly knowledgeable about paints and whatnot. I have a painting project I'm halfway in and could use some expertise.

I have some damaged aluminum car wheels that had some minor cosmetic damage. Factory, they come painted... overtop of what seems to be a fairly thick plastic coating to help smooth things out. (It definitely plastic cause if you burn the material that comes off it, it smells like  ABS plastic)

Anywho, I sanded up one of the wheels and smoothed it out as a tester, sprayed it with a rattlecan primer and while it was setting up I read the directions to see how long to wait and whatnot and found out I chose an oil based primer. My final color will be a acrilic based paint.

So, my question is... Oil based should stick okay to this weird plastic stuff (I didn't have any fisheye happen in area where I sanded through the paint to the plastic... so I'm guessing it sticks okay to the weird plastic) but I'm worked about it peeling off later.

And also, my color coat is an "acrylic enamel" paint. How is this going to stick to the primer? Most of the stuff I can find online are sketch.

I assume since it's a plastic based paint, and the primer seems to stick to the weird plastic okay, I assume it should take.

Just don't want to get elbow deep in a horse to find out I'm supposed to be elbow deep in a cow.

Rule of the painting jungle is oil over acrylic OK. Acrylic over oil NO NO.

I once cleaned bathroom in a rental flat and the paint came straight off (sponge and soapy water!). When I moved out not long after, landlord tried to sting my bond for the paint in the bathroom. I just said to him "You painted acrylic over oil - NO NO. Gimme my money back".

Yeah I've decided to resand it again. I don't want to have to do this again. At least I'm only one wheel in.

I'll pick up a different primer to use. the company that makes the color paint says their color paint can be applied over lacquer just fine....so I dunno.

I'll see if I can find one of those adhesion promoter primers. That should be able to cover all the bases and still have paint compatibility.

I'll shoot some pics and turd up the thread for old times sake/bad reminders of doing wheel work once I get these tires dismounted.

It's no 1970 TA but I still like my car to look good and not looking like all those tards driving around with half flaked off matte black wheels.

I wanged a monster pothole a long while back and taco'd the edge of a wheel (completely unrepairable, but still held air.) Dodge wanted over 1000 canuckstani kopeks for a replacement special order wheel so I said let'er buck, it'll either kill me or be okay. 

I recently had been given 2 wheels of the same type with some minor cosmetic scrapes after a friend with the same car boned a barricade in the wintertime and insurance bought him 4 new ones, (they discontinued the car in 2017 and that style is now NLA) so I'll clean these up since they only have minor curb rash and give them a shot of paint and I'll be good as new.

Thanks for the info folks
