Now I have been asked soo many times "how
do ya do your tyre lettering?" I thought
I'd show you just how easy my method is.
All you need is a very small screw driver. Preferably
one with a cross end, As it holds the paint better.
Yes I know what your thinking.. Screw driver?!???
Put it this way, Even with a good brush &
plenty of time on your hands it's still far easier
to do it this way. Well, I've tried both and I
Use lexan paint, Nothing else seems to stick as
good. I've tried them all! As you can imagine
lexan paint has the flexibility to it, So it's
a good choice for the tyres. You can use any colour
you like, But white or yellow are best. You need
it to stand out.
Right, Choose a set of tyres to do and your away!
Remember, ALWAYS do the lettering when the wheels
are complete. If you try and fit tyres on to wheels
with the lettering done it will just make a mess.
Drop your screw driver in to the well stirred
You don't need much on the end just a nice little
drop to fill the end of the tip, If it's bulging
with paint a little, Wipe it off and start again.
Slowly dab the paint inside the lettering &
it will spread out to the edges. Easy!
Just repeat the process until all the lettering
is done. Remember to use some nice new paint,
use old stuff and you'll be there all day!
If you do it all slowly to start with you should
end up with some nice wheels.
Do the wheels while they are off the car/truck.
And let them dry really well before fitting them
back on. Your model should look ten times better
now! As it makes such a difference it's unreal.
