Yup. Wheels are shopped on there and the sidewalls painted black.

Well regardless of the 'shop, charcoal colored grill / wheels on a 2-door gets the thumbs up from me. Seems to be a good combo on red, works well here too I think. Go for it.

if you dump the chrome trim in the front, then get rid of it in the rear as well... other than that it looks good...

If your going to take a pic, doctor it up, you might as well shop or fix the broken headlight wiper arm.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, a buddy of mine back in dallas shopped this. He shopped in "HIDs" lowered darkened side marker which mine is currently all clear(stolen off 9-5 in garage). I was just curious how people liked the rims on it. I thought they looked quite like a pair of some Saab rims, just cheaper :P Some Borbet LV5's. I also was kind of curious what people were gonna say to my trunk, which none was added. Just two alpines in some heavy duty boxes.

@LMS; I know right, the damn things are what makes looking at my front end give me the giggles. My grille also is currently red on the back plate, black on the chrome. I sanded the chrome down and all so its good to go, just repaint the black on the back when I can get these rims on my baby.
This is what she look like in the grille:

BTW, is there a way to take the orange/yellow tube "light looking things" out or change their color? just curious

Again, thanks for your posts

Palmer and JK88. Sorry I didn't post up in the main that I hadn't put the rims on or anything. This was as the topic of the discussion was, a WANDERING what people thought. Try to get a little more behind my mind before cash flying out my pocket. Congrats, you now have seen my other post. This being the first of any decent reply which I greatly appreciate the people seeing past my friend shopping the car.

i think people are always happy to opine on a photoshop. you just didn't present it that way and we noticed. no big deal.

also, if you are going to yell, it's WONDERING. not WANDERING. unless you want your readership to wander based on past thoughts, which is a different matter all together.

Yes... pull the headlights, remove lens clips, carefully separate the lens from the rear, remove headlight levelers. Might not be legal in all countries, idk.

I saved a pic and am going to help it with my ms paint skilz.



I got rid of you mirror hang tag, the scuff on your bumber, the chrome on your rear bumper so it matches your front, and your 1 effed up headlight wiper. Get some wrenches.

When you go back for round two, aslo try and not have your camera car reflecting in yours.

Lol. I plastidip'd my front and rear bumper(where faded) looks brand new and actually sprayed over that back chrome. completely hidden. the front head light wipers are the giggles of the car. sometimes their right, both faced in. sometimes one up other down. sometimes both out haha. But yep cant hide the photoshop other than not mentioning it. sorry

Tighten down the nuts on the wipers. That is probably why they sometimes work.
