Looking for some idea of how to paint my centre caps for my remotecs?

I received two painted with the black inner bits and two without and somehow need to paint the two silver ones to match.
I've been round a few wheel places now and they've all pretty much said the same thing, they can't help me, might be time to get the paint and brush out and spend a few hours hand painting them.

I'm happy to do this if I have to but have no idea what paint or lacquer or the process to get them looking the same. Obviously the rest of the wheels are painted so it needs to be a pretty close match. :confused:

Any help would be great - I've had the wheels sitting around for a while now and want to get them on (without odd caps on two of them). :D

Paint the whole thing then sand back the top edges and polish T:

Couple of coats of lacquer after polishing and you'll be sorted
Cheers for the advice! T:

Any clue as to what type of paint I should be using for these? Standard gloss alloy paint?

what he said... but i would mask off the center bolt thing...black gloss for me and lacquer...few 100miles with brake dust/road film, you would never know T:


:ILU:
Haha yeah that's true... They'll be dirty in no time with the lack of dry sunny days!!

I'll give this a go and see how they come out.
