Well, i had a thread about the beginning of my little project,
and now it's finished (almost...)

1. Alexrims Supra BH Pro - Before
2. Covered spokes (cover and uncover is a real pain in the a$$)
3. The paint set
4. After..
5. Stripping down the paint, and a finished one

and the final views

I know you would ask: "Why not buy a set of Syncros?"
Cos i'm a poor guy, and this is my DIY solution.
Some of you will call me smarta$$, and you'll be right.
I didn't use the right kind of color, and it chips down easily. :madman:
I have to strip it down again and repaint. But the basic idea was good.

Anyway a few words about the upgrade:
- The 66 is a monster and a great value. I'm very pleased with it.
It's not heavier than the Drop off IV, and the 20mm gives great stability.
- Maxxis ADvantage is cool. 2.4 is great, i don't need no more.
Doing well in loose/soil/sand. Corners well.

I liked the rims black, but they look sweet white too. I'm always a fan of a ghetto do it yourself solution. The norco is awesome, bike looks like a hard azz! Nice ride :thumbsup:
First time i agree with you on something GETSTUPID , i like it in black as well ;)

Cool bike anyway :thumbsup:

.

So, how exactly did you strip the rims? I plan on doing the same with my Frame shortly, and it's not Ano, its the same paint/clearcoat that your rims are.
Most of the colors need a prime layer. If not, you have to scratch the old color with a sandpaper so the new color can stick to it. Be sure you're using
the right color, not like me...:(
