Nice, I like the basic 5 spoke look. It's that simple look that is SO nice. Why'd you change? Just to match closer to the back?

I am a down right chrome whore. I love chrome. I want just enough black to make it blend. Black, blue, and chrome.
I have decided to wait until this winter to have everything painted. I have never attempted to do any painting. I don't think a single color would be that hard. I have a compressor I can use easy enough. I have 3, 20gallon with 250psi, rated at 90psi constant. It has a v twin 8 hp motor. Then I have a small pan cake type. 5 gallon I think. That is the one I would use. It is rated at 180psi, 40psi work load.
Just go to do some reading.

I have a few friends who do their own paint, you're right that it's something you can do. Will it be the same quality as a pro who's done it his whole life? Of course not, but it's good for most guys and you learn as you go. Prep is everything, proper equipment helps make it easier.
