For those of you who don’t remember or have not heard of this, please go here for the backstory…So with the JDM vs DTM Import Showoff event coming up at the LA County Fair, I thought it would be a good idea to finally get the ball rolling on this project. I was gonna do this a long time ago but just never got around to it. I remember I was even gonna try to put this together in time for the Eibach meet this year. The wheel that Alexisthemovie gave me has just been sitting in the trunk of my 4Runner the whole time. I didn’t expect to actually get a free Rota wheel when I was asking around for one but it was actually relatively easy to get. Actually not that I think about it, somebody from SDREV was supposed to help me make a t-shirt featuring the Rotamaster wheel and for some reason I never heard from the guy again. This was the original concept of the shirt that the guy came up with….
Pretty cool right? Hell I’d rock that shit all day but I don’t know what happened to the dude who was gonna make them. I might actually get around to making a shirt like this too but I’m not really sure who’d actually wear it other than me. I’d do something similar to that but with “Counterfit” spelled correctly….Anyways, so first thing I gotta do is to re-spray the wheel all one color as it currently is partially gold from some random rattle can test spray. Really shows you how much Rotas are worth when people are using it to test spray paint…haha.
The wheel is clearly fucked up. No doubt about it. Same Rota quality we’ve all grown to love. I swear to you I did nothing to fuck this wheel up. I may have asked for one in the most fucked up condition possible but I definitely did not touch it. Those bends and missing chunks of the wheel were all results of daily driving and hitting potholes and rocks on the road….I plan on respraying the entire thing so that it’ll end up looking like this…
First thing I gotta do is create the vector for the “EMO” logo and then cut it to the proper sizing. For those of you who have a 16-inch Regamaster EVO on hand. If you could leave a comment with the dimensions of the logo it would be great. Just the one on the spoke is fine. The one around the wheel I guess I’ll have to figure out on my own….I’m actually kinda looking forward to doing this because I’ve been bored as shit lately. Oh well, after I cut the logo today I’ll see what I can do before the weeks end. Stay tuned….I’m gonna have a couple of little touches instore to finally put some value into this wheel….
