Good ole' kerosene heater dryer! Haha. Works just fine though. It was about 15 degrees outside the night he sprayed them, so we had to improvise. The col... Show moreor is outstanding! He did lay down a white primer before spraying the blue to give it an extra pop! These pictures just don't do that color much justice. It's such a bright blue. Gorgeous in the sun!

This is the gold my wheels were when I first got them. The gold quickly faded into an ugly silver-ish color, so I chose to repaint them as opposed to buying ... Show morenew wheels. Although it was a great idea, it certainly came with some headaches. I'm definitely a creature of habit. For the most part, I don't like when things change. Not a great characterisitic for a car enthusiast, I know. :) Coming up with the perfect color took months; I wanted to do a bright color, but nothing too bright because I feared that whole 'ricer' stereotype. After numerous trips to the auto paint store I finally decided on my color. A Volkswagon metallic teal blue. My inspiration came from a '63 Beetle I saw in an edition of VDub Magazine. The paint tech did tweak the color quite a bit to get the brightness I needed to be able to stand out. Overall, one of my favorite mods to the Lancer. :)Like I said earlier, I'm a creature of habit and change scares me most of the time. And for that reason I have to thank Nate, Munchie, Chris, & my Chris for all their patience. Hands down, without a doubt, painting my wheels was the best decision I have made for Eva yet. From the moment I saw the paint in the can to the moment I saw my finished wheels, I just felt this sense of relief that I hadn't felt all those months I was trying to find the perfect color. I had found it! And I love it! Show Less
