new look mod and more to come soon!

Bored at work so decided to paint my rims same color as car BSM and did my chrome trim in black..have scoops and springs on the way as well as caliper paint. Looks pretty good I think..

you paint the trim/grilles in flat black but have the wheels glossy? ummm ok. I think it would've been better with the trim being in gloss black (or paint matched BSM whatever) and the wheels left alone.

but hey, at least the wheels are invisible now! that was the goal right?

I like the flat black trim and grill....I liked the stock color of the rims also but wanted to change it up to keep me interested in the car since I trade cars a lot when I get bored with them..thanks for your opinion

I agree with color matching the rims/trim/grills but hey to each their own plus you can always repaint stuff! Murdered out look looks pretty cool

No I'm not really a plastidip fan... took them off and sprayed them with matte black, sanded the chrome first then sprayed about three coats
