Today oh boy today well I went out and posted my flyers and went and put an ad in with the paper. I hope this comes to something or I just wasted my time. Came home and got to crackin on my tires got them mounted. Man thoes little things have some stiff tread makes em a pain to mount. But I got em done. sanded out my little damages due to mounting then washed em and taped em up around the rims. Lots of time into that. Then wrapped em with paper and shot the primer onto the rims thats about it for the day didnt do much else but it was a really nice day here today. Was about 60 i bet. and now the photos

My Question why didn't you paint them before mounting the tires. I usually do that and lots of liquid soap mount from the back side usually don't scratch them up. I know working on fresh paint is tough on the nerves though the model As we do are done slow so we don't scratch them but it happens on occasion we just touch up.

well thats the funny thing with these rims lol the valve stem is on the back side and so is the smaller lip but i use tire spoons and soap so i bugger up the edge on the paint a little so to fix that i use this method lol sooner or later it will be for not cuse ill rub the rim against something and scuff it any way lol

I basicaly just looked mine over quick not sure as to when I will get to it had a couple people email me on it they must have saw it here on the site. I will keep you in mind if I need anything if you decide to part it. my buddy got a mf10 and I liked it and this one just popped up I couldn't say no. Maybe just clean it up and fund the case restore...
