Well removed the wheels yesterday, the flat black is nice because you don't have to wash them but they just don't compliment the car. So they are due for a remodel, sanding them down and repainting + decals.

And pix....

flatblack / no flash on the cam


flatblack / flash on


side by side


after sanding / no flash on the cam


after sanding / flash on


this was interesting,...
look you can see where the original "volk" decal was i guess steam pressed on the wheel to leave a mark under all the original / aftermarket paint/sanding.


Havent decided on a new color yet, I'll keep ya'll posted.

I'm gonna see if I can get them polished and cost involved, that should look pretty badass.

On the Admin thing...
I only noticed that late this afternoon, already created my robb86 account, just had to sign in on this again because I accidently turned off that users can just join, they had to be "activated" first, took that off now.. so back to being robb.

Should have painted them bronze.. I like the red/bronze combo. Everyone seems to have black wheels. You really must be too lazy to wash your wheels. hahahaha

Didn't think about Gold. Hmmm, that might look pretty good. Take some scrap metal and paint it gold and set it next to the car...
