    The black is just a high temp engine paint and the silver is Rustoleum, aluminum metallic. Took a little bit of time to do since its so cold out and spray paint dries weird if its not above about 50 deg, but after getting a hold of a small space heater and a bright/hot spot light, it turned out pretty darn good.. Got the decals from ws6store. I'll post some more pics once I put the wheels back on tomorrow.

    Let us know how it holds up. I went with the ceramic stuff (forgot the brand, but it's on Amazon) and it just started chipping after 3 years.

    2000 WS6 Trans Am

    Those look nice. I want to get mine painted to match my bright red exterior color, then put black 'Trans Am' decals on them. I think that would look awesome.

    That would look good.. It really makes a huge difference appearance wise, I wish I wouldve done it earlier. My only 'complaint' is that the orange on the decals is a little brighter than sunset orange, but hey I still love it.

    biggest thing, as is the case with any paint job: Preparation is key!
