    A much more detailed representation:
    Pioneer AVIC install on the 9-5 is done, so I moved on -- or rather, returned to the Aero wheel restoration I had started last November:
    Before (note chunk taken out on the edge of one spoke):

    Chunk filled, sanded with 400 grit paper:

    Hard to see here, but masked with clear/transparent scotch tape to get the fine line, and further masked with blue tape:

    Fully masked and a coat of "Ford Medium Charcoal Metalic" layed down:

    Test painted one wheel first. Before color on the left, after on the right:

    Curb rash:

    After some dremel work:

    Catching the other three wheels up to the first:






    DuPont clear lacquer -- some seriously nasty stuff. Wear a breather and goggles!

    Paint curing tonight:

    Mounted them during my lunch break:








    Sorry for the iPHone quality pics. Lighting isn't the best either. I'll take some tomorrow if I have time.
