Canvas it will be!:)

Well i picked up the wheels from the blaster($5-each),then went to get some paint.I couldn't find the canvas white anywhere!!!I went home and looked through my supply's and found 1 can of Valspar primer and 1 of gloss white(both tractor paint)that i bought for a project last year.After letting them bake in the sun for a while,i shook them up and went to town.Here's a pic of the sandblasted wheels,and one after being sprayed.

approximately how many rattle cans does it take to do the rims? I'm going to do my front and rear rims soon. Thanks in advance.
All depends on the brand of paint.It took a full can of the Valspar tractor paint from TSC to do the fronts.The rears will take a bit more,not looking forward to it!
