    Lol na to the blacked out sail panel, see that one too often on 4th gens. Im actually thinking about painting my hood to the red color, but not sure yet.

    Still waiting to paint. ITs cold out and dont want to wait hours on end for the paint to dry between coats. Heres what im gonna put on the rims after paint is done. Some Bird decals for my BMW center caps lol Dont worry about the fuzziness, thats the camera phone in poor lighting conditions and the transfer tape thats on top of the decal for installation.

    Clear coating finished, rims curing for the night. Im pretty impressed with myself. Did about 2-3 coats of primer, 4 coats of black, 7 coats of clear. Light coats of course Center caps and valve stem keepers are also curing. waiting for paint to cure before i stick on the decals. Was tempted to do it but since i gotta wait to put the center caps on the rims anyway, ill wait. The BMW center caps are pretty cool actually. They have these keeper ring on the outside so i can remove the BMW disc with out sanding and filling so it worked out great

    Great job wow. Ive always been a hater of black rims do forgive me when I say silver would have looked way better, and made the wheels look bigger too. Black rims have a -1" impact visually. Did you put a clear over the black? With brake dust and heat and washing the gloss will fade fast.

    Ill elaborate more I guess in an how to thread but I primed, colored, and clear coated the rims inside and out save for clear coating the inside. Just applied more primer and color on the insides to give added protection but no need for gloss since its gonna get pretty beat up. I actually used two different color coats on the inside to protect it.
