50 shades of grey-feelin blue

Ever since i saw this M4 concept I wanted to get my silver this dark with the different shades. And JGmods mentioned having a shop put darker cleat coat on top without having to repaint the whole car. Made sense! And I'm getting closer to getting my wheels powdercoated blue and my goal is to get it down exactly like the work wheels. I have some choices that caught my eye but the ones that look close to what I feel and like is super chrome/midnight blue wrinkle or splatter midnight. What do you guys think? Then eventually keeping the face of the wheel blue and the inside of the barrels mirror polished even though you can't really see them. Just a thot.

I think any of those blues look good, moreso if glossy.

yeah not wrinkle or grainy but the shade of blue with a smooth surface. work wheels did a good job at trying to make it difficult to duplicate their matte mag blue

it grows on you plus finding a powdercoat shop helps with so many color choices to choose from and with very reasonable prices
http://www.prismaticpowders.com/gallery/?color=blue this is their color catalogue, i wanted to poop so bad from all the excitement of looking at all the choices earlier this week

Those Volks are sexy as hell.

The richer shades of silver have always intrigued me. Can be a very bland color, but those green and blue hues you get with SS or SSII is absolutely stunning. After LSB, could be my favorite color.

Debating between the Volk G12's, HRE FF01's, or VMR V801's at this point. Will likely powdercoat them white.

I found the winning coat! Matte look in the sun, with some metal/textured look close-up, and dark blue in the shade.

I look forward to see what your car looks like with a matte finish. It's either your route or a satin white wrap/dip for me

I have a chance to wrap the whole car in a darker silver but I figured I'll hold off on it for now. Just enjoy doing the wheels for now.
