Another rim question

While I am saving up for my paint & supplied air system I am taking the time to fill in rust pits on my blasted wheels. What is the best way to paint these?

Do I try and hang them from the valve hole?

Would like to paint them all in one shot if I can.

I Have Horses made from old pipe, I made a set up that gas 4 rollers on it & it fits over the pipe on the horse. I paint the rim where the tire goes first. Then the rest works great.

I painted the inside of my rims by placing the rim on two sets of casters bolted to a board so I could spin them around as I painted them. I posted a pic on the community forum as "rear rims."

Thanks Guy's!!

Now that the weather is finally turning nice to be able to work outside I won't be spending much time on the H.

Which is ok since I need to build back up my hobby fund, those tires just about wiped me out :(
Hopefully all I need after the paint is front tires and a few gaskets, oh I forgot about a new wiring harness, darn it's one thing after another :wink:

Use epoxy primer on the inside and outside, it is water proof so you don't need to topcoat the inside. Drys in a few minutes, wait longer if you like. Then you can put them in any position you want and topcoat the outside.
