Painting 'Dunlop' logos on tyre walls

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

The PE for my Mazda 787B has a stencil for the yellow 'Dunlop' logos on the tyre walls. I've never done this before. so i'm wondering which paint is best for covering the rubber? Acrylic, enamel? Any tips?

 

Many thanks,

Gareth

Yes, I was thinking that, but it's going to be a bit laborious. Laziness made me wonder if there's a shortcut. :)

I take it it covers the black OK, due to the different texture of the rubber? (I'm going to give it a go on the side walls, but it will have to wait as I'm off to Le Mans tomorrow.)

Yep, I generally do it with a build up of very light coats, don't forget its tyres we are talking about, a pretty dynamic environment for paint once the wheels are turning.
