Covered up stainless and gray today

I had a warm snap today so I figured I would cover up the non-matching parts. What do you think?

Honest answer, like the painted rims, would have left the stainless as is,(not painted), sorry my opinion you asked

I agree. Painted parts end up fading and chipping off.

Looks good either way. Sometimes it is fun to just change things up a bit.

I like the Dexwheels myself. I put stainless trim rings on minewhen I got the marathons.Then 2 months later we traded the trailer in on a new Wolf Pack.Part of the deal was that they would change out the aluminum wheels on the new one for my pimped out dexwheels,and of course the marathon "e" tires that were balanced. The black fenders are OK though.

I like it because you did the work and showed us. Thanks for the photos. It is inspiring me to repaint the underside of my TV. You know the hitch rear axle and stuff. The things that do not need to be done, but what we do to make it our own. To stand out in a crowd

Looks waaaay better.

Add some trim rings to the wheels if you like and would brighten it up a bit.
