So, last weekend I got my touring rims back from powdercoating. Just figured I would post some pics up to see what people think. Today I plan on putting in my Nissan Emblem CF inserts to tie in a little more black and the windows will be getting tinted 30% sometime in the next few weeks... Also, next Saturday I have an appointment to get my Stillen Rear Hatch Spoiler on... Should look pretty sweet after that. I got the 70-78 Fairlady Z emblem I plan on putting on the rear center once the stillen is on... Don't know what else after that, but not much. Maybe a front lip? I think I'll like how it looks with just the rims, stillen, tint, etc. so I'm going to start spending more on performance then, as opposed to looks.

Let's hear some comments?

You know...it would be even cooler if you could get some closeups of the wheels, maybe an angle shot to show off the gloss black.

Here are a couple pics I snapped off. Let me know what y'all think... Got the Stillen Agressive Rear Lip Spoiler and the cursive font Fairlady emblem (from a post below) going on Saturday. I'll post some more pics. Also, got CF inserts in the front emblem this past Friday...

Must...get...out...microscope... :rolf2: Where? :dunno:

Are your blinkers and signals blacked out? Looks like it. Now all you need to do is black out your tails to match the wheels and/or theme you're going for.

For everyone else out there, secret hint: if you don't wash your front wheels for two weeks and still have the OEM brake pads on, then you are still able to achieve the same black powdercoat finish for much less $$$. Haven't washed my car in a while and my front wheels look darker than yours :lol: :headshake: .

BTW, what did you mean about the microscope?! the pics are 800x600? i didnt see the need to steal bandwidth with 1600x1200 pics...

or do you just want closeups? this isnt all the pics I have...
