Painted Wheel Cap

Well if you guys saw this thread, https://www.yourcobalt.com/forums/int...nter-caps.html You would look and see that I painted one of the caps. It came out with some flaws. It looked good from a distance but I was not satisfied. So I redid it and here is how they came out. They are like 1000 times better and I'm really happy how they came out. No yellow showing anywhere, lines are nice and straight, no rough edges. They look a little funny in the pictures but trust me, they are real nice. Aside from the little bit of sticky marks that you see on the top left cap on the silver. I will be cleaning them up tomorrow and putting them on the car.

Haha I don't know what I was thinking when I put "steering" wheel cap in the title. Could someone change it for me?? Put it "Painted Wheel Caps"
