Rim painting...
 
Guess who ****ed up my paint putting my tires on...Anyway, how should I repaint? Totally redo it and take all the paint off or just sand down the ****ed up areas and hit them?

that sucks about the rim scraping. you'll be able to fix it up nicely though. just re-do the rim part (i'm assuming that's where they scoured it).
