the "correct" way is to do them black then mask and spray the silver
I had mine done silver then black Smoothrited the segments by hand and was very pleased with the results

the powder coaters will sort the blasting too

I think I paid just less than 100 for 6 wheels done in silver

I then detailed them then had the lot sprayed clearcoat

just tell the wife pink is not a RAL colour!
