    Default new (er) wheels

    As you can see from the profile pick I have updated the Mules wheels, from a 2002 Suburban, sanded them down, primed painted black satin and a satin finish clear coat. I also just had a Flowmaster super 10 welded on. While this is no ride of the month yet it is coming along. next up is the rust over the rear wheel wells and then fender flares.

    Looks Good! I have been wanting to paint mine - mine are chrome and getting them de-chromed and not having a spare set of wheels while i do them has made me procrastinate however!

    Nice work! Definitely share the pics of your projects as you do them. I think some fender flares would look pretty cool which ones were you thinking of going with?

    One step at a time it's not a race. Glad your putting progress pics on here. You never know maybe one day when your closer to your vision you might get ride of the month. Looks good and bet that exhaust sounds sweet.
