Re: painting Chevy Beat wheels..

Nice to find another beat owner.
Me too interested in matt finish of steel wheels,but now thinks of gunmetal finish.
Lets see what others have to say.

Cheers.

Product
1. Wash your alloys

Distance should be 1/2 feet. I had tried painting my zen bumper that way.
Please read manual provided with Paint kit.It contains steps.
Also protect your eyes and skin from paint.

I got it from an exhibition,can get it locally though.

From your avatar pic I think your having a sandrift grey beat LS.

Do post the details of your DIY of painting your steel rims with black matte finish and the steps with a couple of pictures.


Off Topic: Did you get your ECU remapped?

I asked about the ECU remap about the one provided by GM.IThere are a lot confusios going on this remap as some say newer one comes wit newer ecu settings.What I heard is its free too.
In somee other forum I have seen both people getting low fe and getting high fe(around 20kmpl!).

Our beat has petrol leakage (some rat works and the dealer say around 12k INR to repair it,will have a discussion on my ownership report) so cannot be sure of the fuel efficiency figures.

Do start an ownership report of the beat and I think this is PS variant.


OT: Did you post this car for sale in classifieds.

I think you already got what you were looking for.
Recycle art made a good thread.
I used engine enamel to paint my skyline's wheels to black.
Do share once your done with the project

Should this be ok? My vote goes to the 3rd one with a silver lip.
