Looking for these wheels or any chrome/aluminum 2.2 wheels. I already have the RPM wheels that are available in the internet Thanks
I figured this was best here since it's mostly big rigs that this applies to and the rig builders on TC must have come across this before I have to paint part of a chrome plated part. That is, the chrome plated light housing also has a little grille section on it which needs to be painted black. For little detail parts like this I usually brush-paint directly onto the plastic, but will I be able to brush paint onto a chrome part? My experience with Tamiya X-pots is that it won't stick to the chrome at all. I can try to remove the plating as best I can with some abrasive but as it's a small part I'm worried about going over and putting scratches where I don't want scratches. I'm getting to the end of my first rig build but the amount of painting of tiny little parts is slowing my build right down and really testing my painting skills
