Talking Track Goodies

With the start of the Houston M Club's 2013 track season just days away, I decided to start things off in style. I added a little flavor to a couple of needed items. The "Lid" is painted SSII.......and again this color looks soooooo good in person. The tires were something I thought about last year, so this week I had a little time on my hand and went for it. I love the results.........enjoy...............Phil

Nice. Is that a fresh set of RS3's. At first I thought you had gone full on race tires/slicks. See you Saturday

First off, thanks for the luv gang. I think this is a nice subtle touch to the track gear. So now to the big questions.......how and what. This is a easy project but it takes some time to complete. I purchased some everyday available touch up paint from Auto Zone. You can obviously pick the color you want. Now here's why this was easy........the RS-3's have the letters engraved in the tires. Other brands tend to use raised lettering. All you need to do is paint the area you want to color with a small paint brush. ( photo #1)
Next day I took a Exacto knife and cleaned the area around each letter.......be careful not to scrape the paint out of the letters. It took me about 30 minutes a tire. Now the test will be how well the paint holds up. I will do this again when I replace these tires. I would suggest you really clean the area you want to paint and apply a second layer after your initial clean up. There you go.....the secret is out. If anyone does it post your results .........Phil
