Looks great. Maybe an idea for ya why not get the fog inserts orange and your emblems orange as well?

personally id ditch the orange on the mirrors but regardless its a great color combo! theres a kid around my house that has similar wheels painted lime green, also a good color to consider if you ever want something different

thanks for the comments. i really dont know about adding more orange to the car because is too bright of a color and i dont want it to be the main thing on the car. i was also thinking about the fog light insert but i am not sure. i'll give it a try this weekend.

And yes the green color was also one of my choices but is harder to find so i got the orange.

Do you use the polyurethane as a brush on clear coat? Just trying to figure out why it's there lol. If it works I might use that to get more gloss for my mirror caps and fog trim.

i used a paint gun for the clear coat. This clear is not that good though. I dont recomend it at all. It takes a long time to dry and is not a hard coat. It wont protect the paint. It will get scrached easy.

Looks good man. Kinda wish my ride was white instead of red now. I was thinking of plasti-dipping my wheels a dark gold.

Can you give me any tips on that gunmetal you did on the stocks? I'm not the most talented painter...

I love that color!
