New forged wheels

I used "Full Dip" cans from these guys:

Cheaper that Plasti-Dip and in my opinion better, seems to give better coverage, is easier to apply and gives a much better finish. 

Durability wise it's good, no signs of peeling or chipping in approx 500 miles. However both silver wheels have been stained slightly by black water/brake dust mix that I should have cleaned off but was too lazy to do so. The anthracite wheels still clean up perfectly.

I used their matt grey as undercoat (3 coats) followed by 3 or 4 top coats. Finish is a satin effect.
