    I see a few video's of people that painted the spokes on a dfgt wheel.
    Does anyone know of any vid's or links as to how they did this?

    Maybe a How-To taking apart this wheel for the purpose of painting?
    Thanks for any ideas or help.

    Use a pen knife to pop the GT badge/horn button out of the wheel, be careful though, its got 4 long prongs and 2 small springs.

    Next unscrew the 4 screws you can see through the hole and the rim comes off. Then it's a simple job of removing all the screws at the back of the rim. The only 2 that are a pain to get to are the ones under the paddles.

    I'v not done it as im almost guaranteed to break them.
