Black barrels.

I was wondering what black barrels looked like about a week ago. I ended up going with black, here is a couple pics. D

Wish I could stop pics from rotating.

Looking good on those newly Triple Chrome plated wheels. LEDs sure would look good.

Did you do this yourself or have it done? If you did it, was the paint brushed on or sprayed? Looks really nice

Jersey Red. Don't want to high jack Dino's thread. When I get my tires balanced they can throw the weights behind the spokes. Just FYI.

1. I was told if you take the pictures with a camera and load them into a computer file they go in correctly to this site so that is what I have been doing. Not very techno savvy here.

2. I read on the forum a few weeks ago the guys having picture orientation problems is because they are taking them with their phone or some other device. Don't remember all the details but he said if you do that you had to do a save and so on and then submit them after re-orientation. For some reason they turn or flip upside down if you don't do it just right or use a camera. Maybe some one can jump in that knows more about this and can help you out. Good luck. Auggie

Man, it drives me nuts. I take them on my phone, upload them to my desktop, and it turns about 60 percent of them. D

A word of advice...don't go with slotted/drilled rotors if you paint the insides of your rims.

When I first powdercoated mine transparent sparkly blue, I had the stock solid rotors. Hardly any dirt or brake dust. Very easy to clean...and as a matter of fact I don't remember having to clean them often.

I went with slotted/drilled rotors a year later and noticed no performance benefit, and they do look nice...but man oh man they deposit about 50 times more dirt/dust/grime on the insides of the rims. It's amazing how quickly they get your perfectly clean and polished inner rims filthy. It's almost instant...if you drive your truck at all, you will have that nasty filthy brownish caked-on gristle inside your rims almost right away. It happens so fast you can't even enjoy your pristine rims. Not fun.

The reason I went with powdercoat instead of paint is that is is more immune to hazy small scratches and isn't as easily scratched by a slightly dirty rag when you clean the insides. That piano black paint looks great but it's not going to be fun keeping them so nice and blemish-free. The powdercoat isn't nearly as nice of a smooth perfect finish but it is very durable. I spray the inners of the wheels with Black Magic Tire Foam and then take a few clean rags and wipe them clean. They look like the day I had them finished. Until I drive the truck of course haha...

But anyhoo...I wish I had stayed with solid rotors. Much, much, much, much less crud build-up on the insides of the rims.
