Painted mah rimz dawg

If you didn't see in the other thread I decided to just paint the wheels satin black. One of them like didn't want to be painted, a bunch of stuff landed it in on the final coat and screwed it all up big time. Then I was just gonna get all 4 painted professionally by someone I know but decided against it and to just fix it and paint them all. So I did and heres pics




After looking at these pics, I need to do 5% tint on my side windows badly. My windshield doesn't even look tinted

Looks great! love the wheels black!
I think the HL mod would look good too but if not at least paint that little white plastic strip on top of the corner light black. It will make the gap look more even with the gap between the hl and hood. I did it to mine and it looks much better.

I wanted to do that and thought that the white out would make it look like a nastruck, but I kind of like the white letters out now. IDK why lol. If I get someone to flip them for free I'll do it but I'm not spending $60 on it.

Looks great.

IMO you need to do the headlight and blinker mod. I think it would match the grill and wheels.
