The background story... I've had these bullitts and like new tires sitting in my garage for a year or so, I took them off my last mustang before I sold it and just put a pair of used bullitts and eh tires on, I don't care for these bullitts because they're 17's and the tires are 245 45's all around.. (hopefully picking up a set of wheel spacers to solve one of the issues this causes lol) So I didn't want to sell them because i'd be wasting $ in a time I don't have much to spare.. so I thought.. How can I make these sweet.. I've always been a fan of colored lips so I saw the opportunity, some suggested powder coating? waste of money to me and whats the fun in that.. so finally .. this is how SON1C got his new shoes and yours could too
Most would rate these bullitts 8-9/10
anyone who knows me being a perfectionist.. I'd say more of a 7..
However it did hurt to take sandpaper to these, and a couple times I wondered.. what did I just do! lol
Began decontamination of the tire..
Mothers foaming wheel and tire cleaner is incredible stuff, pick up a bottle and you'll be amazed at what it can pull out.. and more so disgusted lol, these have been treated before so they weren't too bad and I use quality dressing / protectant etc
Wet sanded with 320, resanded several areas to get full coverage, bit of a learning curve to these wheels and I don't do painting projects too often, I painted my mirrors cobra termi style, I could compile it into a writeup similar to this as well, they came out very well -> shoutout to froush
I'm a big believer in... get more than you need, so you definitely won't have to stop and go back to the store! lol
Unfortunately I didn't have access to a nice indoor painting space, so all the work was done outdoors, which did negatively effect the final product.
I used playing cards to protect the tire from spray, great for "ease of use, make sure they stay wrapped tight enough so the spray doesn't creep through, and unfortunately the wind did blow them off a couple times, so use with caution and or on a nice.. non windy day..
