18 AMG Wheels Painted

Hi Guys what do you think of this?

I'm still getting the other 2 wheels done since I only have two hangers.

It's gonna be on a Artic White with Pano roof.

I'll give that my stamp of approval, not that my opinion matters. I think they will look sweet on your artic white C. Don't know whether you painted them yourself or not, but it looks like a real professional job. Post some pics of them on your car when it's done.

Looks nice! Could you tell us if you had it done professionally or did it yourself?

If you had it done, what did it cost?

If you did it yourself, what kind of paint did you use?

Looks good. I was thinking about doing mine in charcoal. The machined face really stands out.

It was done professionally by a well know body shop artist here in the Philippines who makes customize cars.

The cost is about $175 for all 4 rims.

At first we were planning charcoal but there would be a parting line with regards to the machine finish that we plan to leave from the start and the only way to protect the parting line from scraping off or chipping in the future we needed to apply a clear coat to prevent this thus making the black into a mirror finish instead of matt.

But it turn out just great and I'm excited to get the next 2 rims by Wednesday.

Looks good, the only thing that makes them looks less oem-esq is the painted center cap with bright star.
