Black Painted Toyota Vios TRD Wheels

Painting my Toyota Vios, the original TRD wheels is always in my mind since 3 years back. Rather than changed to the low quality wheels made in Taiwan or Thailand, that might endanger the safety of the vehicle due to replica wheels are less rigid compared to original wheels.

This time, I going to share to you how I get my Toyota Vios, TRD sport wheels painted to black with colorful rubber spray film.

Rubber spray film is new technology paint spray where the paint coating can be tear off after the paint if we are dissatisfied with the effect. So I have no worry if the paint effect is not nice, I can always tear it off.

I bought 2 cans of Colorful Rubber Spray Film from Mr. DIY shop in Time Squares, Penang. Each can cost me only RM21.00. The price is affordable
