I hate that black rim look, but you did manage to do a good job of painting them. Lets see how long it lasts

i think you did a great job painting them, they came ou great, but like some other guys i dont think those turbo rims are good candidates for being black...i dont like those stock rims in general.

That's what happens to blaze red when it sits out in the Texas sun for 14 years. It will go perfect with my Hello Kitty exhaust tip.

The bumper isn't really attached. It's just kinda hanging out. I have a little more work to finish the FMIC install. I just stick it back on to keep it out of the way. I modified it today anyway, I post pics later. You'll love this feat of ghetto engineering....



As you may or may not be able to tell, I'm not overly concerned about looks at this point. This is mainly going to be a track/autox/drift car. I painted the wheels black mostly to hide them and the brake dust.
