Comments about Duplicolor Wheel Coating, Graphite, 11 oz. Aerosol:

This product is not formulated to spray a mix of paint and fairy dust (those sparkly things) evenly! Let every coat of this paint dry for at least 24 hours before proceeding to next step. I said 24 hours because you will be able to see the damage caused by loose fairy dust then. Your next step will be to wet sand the painted surface with a 600-1000 grit unit, so that you get rid of the roughness caused by any loose fairy dust. I have a metal bumper off of my 99 explorer that took weeks to restore, and now the paint job is pretty much botched. I dont have the time to repaint it, but I am saving you the hassle :)

I'm giving this product two stars to catch your attention. Otherwise, this is a 10 star product!

        Great product I used the graphite coating on a set of 20" MB Bruzer aluminum wheels. I sandblasted first to get a rough surface for better adhesion, then did 5 coats and 2 of clearcoat and my wheels came out great (You could sand them I just happened to have a sandblaster handy)

          Comments about Duplicolor Wheel Coating, Graphite, 11 oz. Aerosol:

          Used this to refinish my worn M5 rims. I like the color and look of the rims after using this graphite color more so then the original factory color. This item paired with the clear resulted in a brand new looking rims with exceptional professional finish. I love Duplicolor's products and have been using them for years. This was my first time using the graphite, and debated this over the siver and was so glad I picked this one up at my local Advance. Well worth the effort and the end result looks fantastic and custom!
