Any info is appreciated.

thanks !
I have painted the rim, spokes and hub before....just pack a tiny bit a grease to nothing gets in the bearing, clean everything eat-off-of-it clean (I use MEK or acetone) and put the wheel in my truing stand, spun and sprayed. I used several different directions of spray. It's best to do several light coats for various reasons.
