Viper ACR

These wheels, completed earlier this summer have got to be my favorite project to date. When I was contacted to powder coat wheels for a Dodge Viper I found it hard to contain my excitement as this is my favorite car of all time. Later when I found out the wheels were for a 2009 Viper ACR I found it impossible to contain my excitement. This was not going to be any plain gloss black coating job. These wheels were to be two-color, custom masked red and black with pointed accents on every spoke. Each wheel was done one at a time, in and out of the oven 5 times each. The total project took the better part of two weeks straight, from design and cutting of custom masks, to coating and polishing. What you see here represents no less than 150 x-acto blades and much patience.
