I know this thread is old but is this something that should not be done in the winter? I researched some other forums on DIY rim restorations and most of them recommended not even attempting if it is cold out.

JB Weld would def work but requires way more sanding then bondo will.

Hey I know this is a old post, but it is awesome! I'm wanting to paint my rims. How long did it take and how many primer, paint & clear coat?

I know this is an old thread but would it be possible to do this with the tires still on the rims? And how long did this take you? I'm trying to see if I can do this in a day hopefully not two because my G is my only car.
