Looks great!! I am going to buy the metallic bronze huayra soon and i want to also repaint the wheels gloss black. The removal of the wheels doesn't look that hard so i think i might attempt it. The only thing i want to ask is what process did you use for painting them. What paint/brand was used specifically? How did you remove the rims from the tires, did they simply pop out if you pushed them hard enough? were they hard to take off? were they glued on? Also how did you go about painting them ? did you just dip them in a bucket of gloss paint? or use a brush and hand paint it?

Thank man
Tamiya spray can are generally very good and very easy to use. Most tires can be removed by pulling them out (they're not glued). DX custom model section have a lot of information to learn from.

thanks for the help man, will check it out

Thanks! Well, to answer your questions:

Tamiya spray paint was used, for this case TS-14 (Black).
The tires are pretty easy to remove, you'll just need to stretch them a little bit and they'll slide off easily.
I placed them on a wooden board for ease of movement, then sprayed two coats of paint. The first was directly down,  and the second was at an angle to reach the sides of the spokes, etc. No clearcoat was used for mine, although it may be recommended for the long run.

Hope this helps! :occasion14:

Looks awesome man! You must have big cojones to do that to such an expensive model :eusa_clap: Kudos though it looks mean. I would love to see black wheels on the metallic orange autoart Huayra too.

My 1:43 collection thread will be made soon!

Thanks for the tip Justin, I did mine today...
I ended up selling my Red AUTOart Huayra because I couldn't stand the dull silver wheels! If GT Autos did such a good job of the chrome wheels on theirs why couldn't Autoart?
But painting the wheels black on my new white one has made me love it! They should have made the white one this way, it looks amazing!
A few things I found worth noting:
I used a small pair of needle pliers to remove the wheel nuts rather than a knife, three came off really easily, one was a bit stiff but it worked.
Initially I sprayed the paint straight onto the wheels but some sort of coating on the wheels reacted with the paint and it wouldn't lay evenly.
I stripped the paint off and did them again but I would recommend laying the wheels in bleach for a while so the chrome paint comes off. I also keyed the rims with some 800 grit wet & Dry so the paint had something to grip into.
I also painted the wheel nuts in Titanium and re-did the brake discs, I found the Autoart ones a bit boring when I took them off.
I used matt black and dark silver rattle cans to give the carbon effect and then masked the hubs and sprayed them titanium using my airbrush. I then picked out the silver mounting screws again using Trumetal silver paint.

How did you get on putting the centre nut back?
Mine was a bit tight with all the extra paint so I chamfered the edge a little and then they pushed back in.
I like the fact the are easy to remove now though.

I'd like to remove a rear wheel nut cap so I can tighten the screw  in the centre on my Pagani Zonda because the wheel wobbles too much ,but removing that cap is no easy task for me without damaging the wheel, with a penknife ? With a needle? Boy have I got a problem on hand ,help !!!!!!!

Thank goodness for this thread! It saved my butt as my red Huayra began suffering from wobby rear wheels due to age. I removed the caps and tightened the screws and put the caps back on. Five minute job. I had gone down the wrong path earlier by removing the bottom plate and looking to disassemble that way. Would've been a disaster because AUTOart really engineered this thing like they rarely do. Too many microscopic screws to count!

Now I'm going to make a project out of my silver Huayra by removing the wheels and spraying them gold. However, while pre-inspecting my silver, I discovered that one of the wheels is already missing its hub cap! I checked AUTOart Spares and nothing. Does anyone happen to have a spare cap lying around?
