Capillary action to the rescue

Easy way to paint tires
RELATED TOPICS: PAINTING
When painting rubber tires on road wheels, I’ve found that fine rims can be a nightmare to paint.

To ease the process, I use a black wash, such as Tamiya’s panel liner, and touch a brushful to the outside base of the rim. Capillary action draws the wash around the recess and, suddenly, it’s neatly painted.
