I have bought a R1-2001, pick it up on Monday! :rock

But the wheels are black, I want them alu-colored as the older one of R1.

How do I do this?

Is it hard to do it by yourself?!?

Please help me!

And sorry for my bad english! :error

Hey scud.....

I polished just the lips on the rims, as far as what tape I use to mask the center....

I used masking tape on he first layer then I covered that with another layer of masking then I used duct tape to cover that layer ( basically 3 layers ).....it sounds like alot of layers but I'd rather put all the layers than find out that the pain got stripped.....also I try not to get that much paint stripper on the tape.....

Hope this helps....
