    How much paint did it take to finish it? I may try to wire mine down and hit it with some red.

    Scott if you took that rust off by hand i bet that was a long day. when i painted 3/4 of my trailer this summer i had the wire wheel cup on an angle grinder, probably my favorite tool lol. i also just painted my winter wheels for my truck using the same method except i'm a 2 coat of brush on rustoleum white primer and 2 coats of brush on rustoleum black. (4 generations of body men in the family).

    I have a big sander I used so it wasn't too bad. It doesn't look that good upclose in person but from a distance its nice. Next year I want to get it sandblasted and everything painted but this year I couldn't stand the rust look with my truck

    Looks good man. Looks like a total PITA property for leaves. Nice job though.
