Re: My New 03 1500HD

very nice score on the H2 wheels. I didnt realize that the were 2 inches wider than factory truck wheels. how dod you protect the machined portions of the wheels when you painted them? just good ole masking tape?

like the factory, I cleared the aluminum to protect it from the elements. To promote adhesion to the bare aluminum I used POR15's bare aluminum and copper metal prep, it is in a bottle with a yellow label and like their metal etch you apply it for a minute and rinse it off real well. I hear stories of clear coats yellowing over time, but I hope the clear I purchased is of good enough quality that I dont have that problem. time will tell.

you can also see in the pictures that the back side is a different color silver than the front. The paint shop and I for that matter, picked the wrong gm wheel color to match what was on there. I went with it because previously I had even pondered painting the backs black to create more contrast and depth when looking at the wheel and this will do the same thing. Not what I intended, but will work just fine and nobody will know the difference.

Quick question who made the 4 inch tail pipe? Was it for a Duramax the same year as your 1500hd? One more quick question was it stainless steel?

I wish I had that answer for you, I am sorry. The shop that did the work sourced the pipe for me... I want to say it was from Walker, but I don't know.
