fantastic car really came out great nice you did not go with black wheels for contrast. the bkk though, they do not stand out much, especially behind the mesh of the LMs. is it cause of the pictures? what do you think?

A+ for effort but im just not feeling this one. Im thinking it would look better with the mesh part of the LMs painted flat black.

Comparison shot i did.

Beautifully done, A for both effort and looks! I really like the small contrasts with matte and gloss.

As for blacking out the BBS LM mesh, I think it cheapens the look and makes the wheels look smaller. At least gloss black would look cheap, perhaps if they were powdercoated (meaning matte). Though I'd keep the regular LM finish :-)

How about smoked reverse lights and front corner lights? Don't smoke the red in the tail lights though.

I had black wheels on before, I thought i can get use to them. I just like Silver wheels, im more traditional in that sencse. The BBK in real stand out quite a bit. They give the car a high tech kind of look with the matte body.

I wanted to get away from the black wheels, I had black breyton spirits before. It was too much. Plus i dont want to pull apart a brand new set of LM's just yet.

Appreciate it. No rubbing, I had to raise the back up 1.5 turns on the coil overs though. I have 2-3 MM of clearance between the Fenders and the tires. No negative camber.

I have to agree with you, the black kind of cheapens the look of the original LM finish. I may smoke them, I have some extra tint lying around im going to try first.
