Yeah, thats right, I want to paint my chrome lip red.
is this even possible to do on my own...(saving money) and not looking like a POS.

or should I just have a professional shop do it? (and take all my money lol)

dont mind everything else that is photoshopped in this picture lol



THANKS!

Lipstick is an easy way to make them red... They might even have one in your car's color. :cheesy:

I've always wondered this myself though. I want to keep my wheels (for cost reasons) but get them black, or possibly black and yellow somehow, but didn't know if they can do anything and make it look right with chrome.

no they make different kinds of vinyl indoor and outdoor and also goes by years. you want something around 6 years or so i think its close to the best exp. if your doing rims. let me look and see if i cant find you something

so, decal vinyl then... I know awesomedecals.com, and a lot of body wrap places have 6 year vinyl. The best way to have it wrap everything on the lip though, and look right, would be to tuck it partially between the rim and rubber. Cause it would be risky to try and cut it that close to the tire.

Another good place to check would be a sign-maker or commercial vehicle logo making place, if you have one in your area. I've bought rolls of vinyl from a place like that before.
