They look great! If you don't mind a quick question for the inexperienced lurkers, was this as simple as cleaning the surface of the wheels and spray painting? Any tips you can share would be much appreciated. Best wishes and happy new year - Brian

Quick soft wire brush. Some acetone, then spray paint. Used some thin posterboard to guide around rim lip to not get overspray on tires. Helps when wheels off truck but doable mounted.

I really like the look of your truck! Such a stand alone color! Really starting to think I'll go white writing out on my next tires. A great look on your black rims. I'm not a fan of "murdered out" trucks but rims alone look tuff. I have a snorkel, I like the look too, and fender mounted snorkels look great, but I do think yours looks a bit too modern for your truck. A bit to plastic and beefy. Your truck is so raw ( a good thing) and metallic that I think an older style side ported snorkel with a mushroom top would be more period and appropriate. I'm just saying it might look even better and as an element, stand out (the snorkel that is) a little less. Not downing it at all! A great looking truck! I like your style snorkel more than none at all, I just think you should try the older style, if given the chance, before you decide you're finished setting her up! Congrats again! And Happy New Year!
