What do we think....

Hey all

Done my first set of mods.


19" 442m wheels from bubbled up lacquer to a darker version of ferric grey all over. Diamond cut does look good but won't last as much as paint so chose to go paint all over.

Rusty brake calipers in m sport blue.

Opinions on wheel colour?
Car is glacier silver.

I'm 50/50 about wheel colour. I was going for as close to oem ferric grey as possible. But paint shop only had this colour as close to original and was actually called ferric grey 2

Opinions overall?

They are happy to re-do colour as they could see I wasn't 100% happy with colour match

Pics below are before and after.

Who did the work? How much did it cost? And is it paint or power coat?

It's paint.

But I've have them re-done as I didn't feel it went nice with the silver paintwork of the car.
If it was a grey car maybe suited better

I've now done them a bright silver (984 brilliant silver paint with a 2k lacquer)
