Re: AMB wheel masks

I had a wheel mask but found it more trouble that it was worth; now I use a micro brush to paint the wheel and axle; simply throw the micro brush away when done.

Gosh, never took all this trouble. I hand-paint wheel faces with a brush, takes a minute or two, trivial clean-up. I did try a wheel mask once, borrowed Richard Hendrickson's, wasn't impressed.

I wondered about all those sizes too. I got the Proto 2000 one and have used it on every 33" wheel I've got: Intermountain, Rapido, whatever TMW uses, etc.  Both .100 and .088.   Key is to use a rubber band as shown. Spray with Cammo brown from a rattle can gives the wheels that unpainted but even rough texture. Pop them out and a quick couple of rotations with the fingernail on the shiny surface and you are done!  Very durable finish too.
