Project XTracker: Wheels prep & paint

 The wheels got the wire wheel treatment too to remove the majority of the old paint to prep for paint. The plan was to go with the same paint scheme as stock: black with polished spoke faces and rim lips. i thought about going all black with only the spoke faces polished but I thought it would be too black and make the aluminum finish forks stand out too much.

Starting point

Wire wheel clean up

This masking took forever...

After paint

Masking removed

Time to slap these fresh Shinko rubbers on
