Depending upon the color of green you are using, why not have the wheels painted at the same time as the car? Might ook all right to have them match...

It'* very nice! They start by magnetly coating the part with colored granules of whatever that stuff is. Then they bake it so it melts on. It is a bee-you-tea-full finish!! Looks like it'* 6 feet deep. I wish I could think of a practical example that you would have seen...

What is Powder Coating?

Powder Coating is a dry coating process using finely ground particles of plastic resins, color pigments, and special cross linking agents which, once cured, cause the resins to become very hard and extremely durable. Powder coating is the alternative choice over conventional liquid spray painting.

Aviator, you've seen my ADTR intake....that'* powdercoated. Resists heat and won't flake off like my exhaust manifold paint did.
