Well I am at it again, another mod that is about to take place as soon as I have some free time.
In my opinion the absolute biggest thing you can do to a car to change its appearance is changing the rims on it. every vehicle I have put different rims on has changed the look dramatically.
Since I don't care to spend the amount of money needed to upgrade to different wheels and tires, why not once again use my knowledge and skills/resources and do something to the wheels I already have?
Well I have been thinking about what I can do, and after some playing around in photoshop after I made a decision on what I want to do, I am sold on the look.
From one of my other threads I mentioned that I stripped the gold off my SLE badges to make them stainless/chrome appearing, and then coated them to give them a black chrome look. I love the look of them and want to tie my wheels into that theme as well.
I am not a big fan of plain black wheels, or all black wheels. I love chrome, and shine, so I am going to "black chrome" the inside of the spokes...basically the rough area on this style wheel, if you have them on your car you know what I mean.
Here is just a quick photoshop of what it might look like. Once I do the first wheel I will decide how dark or light I want to go etc.. I haven't worked out all the details yet, but it is going to be done and once it is I will then let everyone know more specific details and of course post pictures!
Here is how they look now:
And here is somewhat how I plan to make them look:
Some of you might like it some of you might not, but I figure it will really make the car stand out, and it will only cost me my time and cost of material so why not do it?
