Picked up a 2006 BF Xr6 in ego grey a few months ago. Love the look of the car apart from the rims. I want to paint the stock Xr6 rims matte black or a dark grey.

Can anyone suggest a means of doing this, powder coating would be the most expensive but also the best. I also read about a spray can paint that peels off without leaving a mark if you want to remove it. Does anybody know anything about that?

Also does anyone know a decent Powder Coating shop in the South Sydney Region.

Thanks
Hayden

umm i was thinking of powder coating, but i dont think i could afford it.

so i thought i would just spray paint them, though my problem is i dont know how to fix up the gutter rash so i dont just have gutter rash black wheels... but yeah, thats my issue for the moment otherwise i would have it done already.
