So here's a quick and dirty shot of my Enkei RP02's, taken in the parking lot with bad light. It's a waaaay older style of wheel, but they're in perfect condition (not a hint of rash), they're way lighter than stock, and I'm a sucker for five spokes. They actually somewhat resemble the OEM five-spokes that went on some 2G's.

I'll try to take some better pics in a couple of weeks when I can get the car properly clean, and when my new center cap inserts come in. The Enkeis came in a variety of center cap styles, and mine are the "Racing" style, like this. Personally, I think that looks cheesy as hell. Fortunately, the center cap is basically a machined aluminum ring, and the "Racing" bit is just a plastic insert that sticks on with adhesive. So I ordered a set of Mitsu-logo faux-carbon discs from 3dcarstickers.com that will be going on instead. For the time being, I'm rolling ghetto and center capless.

Thanks! I thought about that (and your photoshop skills are clearly greater than mine!), but the car has so much silver--the lights, the rear spoiler thingy, the gas cap, all the badging--I'm just afraid that bronze/gunmetal would end up clashing. Frankly, even the fact that all the badging is chrome and the tails/headlights have a chrome look yet the gas cap is brushed aluminum looks a little off to my eye. So adding a third metal look is probably out for me.

Now the black? Maybe. All black appeals to me. It's probably not something I'll do right away, but maybe in a year or so if I get bored with the current look.

The other color that appeals to me is orange. But thinking about it, it might be a little too boy racer for me (in the words of Mike Gundy, who I'd forgotten was staging an orange-out of his own...)

I haven't gotten overly good at tinting high exposure objects yet. Tint would look better in person



This is what my tails look like after nightshade and clearcoat

Awesome. I've thought about a blacked out look, but instead of tinting the lights using the black Depo heads and tails.

BTW, dude, don't sell yourself short...those are some pretty good 'Shops! Any chance you can make that Sebring in the background look appealing?

Mine came with the car (Previous owner bought em). Frankly I'm cool with them. Been thinking about replacing the Lug Nuts with some red ones.

Cleaned, sanded and repainted my rims after taking some unwanted curb damage. Also sanded and painted the brake rotor hats and calipers.
