pics of copper 189s or any different colors?

I was playing around with plastidip and miscelaneous items and realized you can actually paint over it and remove it with it as well so I'm kind of hitching to give my wheels a few more coats of plastidip and throw some copper color on top.

Has anyone painted their 189s copper or any "exotic" colors? Preferably on a black e92 but ill take whatever is out there. So please post your pics! I would like to see different colored 189s other then black and oem.

Try and photoshop it to try and test what it would look like. I was thinking of plastidipping my 162's gold and the photoshop turned out like this...I don't hate it

Inexpensive modification (that is reversible with plastidip) that can alter the look of the car to your liking?

Why not?
