Wolfie Just make sure you take the glaze offa the sidewall...I used laquer thinner first, then rubbed it with some #40 sandpaper....used a flat white base primer, then the Krylon Plastic paint.

OleDirtyDoc thanks brother.gonna try it i think.have enough tires to play with.lol

Wolfie Here ya go...added a red stripe around the rim too...the white isnt as shiny for real as in the pic....seems to have bonded well, havent tried it on the road yet...

OleDirtyDoc you got me thinking about whitewalls on my 86.how'd that krylon hold up so far?i need tires anyway for "Faye" but am having a hard time finding a matched set in the sizes i want.they either have them in one or the other.gonna do 110/90/19fr and 170/80/15 rear.i like the shinko 230 tourmaster.havn't checked avon($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)yet.don't wanna pay too much and whitewalls would look sweet,especially if i can get that springer to work.have a front rim off a 440 ltd that has one roter,but is a litter thinner than a vulcan front.gotta see if the 110 is too wide or not

And ya missed my "Wolfie Burgers" when we had the last ride...ya gonna need to make up fer that.....
ANYTIME ya wanna go to OCC, lemme know...you can even spend the night if ya want, I gotta spare room....best bet is on a weekday...I mentioned that to Ant too....OCC is a morgue on weekends besides tourists.
I am really looking forward to that ride and I understand about it needing to be a weekday to be able to see some activity. I am going to talk with Anthony to see if we can match up one of his weekday offs with mine as I am off Thursdays and Fridays every other week. I hope we can work that out soon before we get too much of a change in weather. Right now is the perfect time for riding at least in my opinion.

Wolfie My 89 yr old Mom bought me a rattlecan of that Krylon plastic/vinyl paint...her car is white...she wanted her front (Camry)skirt touched up (plastic)....mwaa haa haaa....I tried it on an old truck tire I had laying around...one coat, and after 7 days, fine....soon as I get help getting mine on the centerstand, doing front and rear whitewalls....I got posterboard to use fer templates....this is gonna be cool !
Hint too...paint when deflated, then reinflate and do a second coat. It works !...so far anyway...
