I'm also a member of the gold cross-lace on green faction.

Personally, I think it'* the only car color the ghetto golds look good on.

Totally agree...... those aero-thingies have to be the nastiest set of rims ever put on a Bonnie.

While I'm not a big fan of the cross-laces either, they would be a huge improvement over the aeros.

You're rims are sweet when body matched. I almost bought an SSE that was green on green.

Hi Folks,
The gold rims have won!
I picked up my set from fellow member, Phil.
Thanks Phil.

The tires are like new, so it was well worth the drive to pick them up, a 5 hour round trip.

Due to their age, the outer edges will have to be sanded and clear coated, a spring time activity for sure!
3 of the rims are more of a copper colour, and one is gold, so they will have to be painted to match.
I was toying with the idea of painting the cross lace portion gloss black, re-finishing the outer edges, then adding chrome lug nuts, and of course, cleaning up the center caps.

Do you folks think that would look crappy, or might be kind of cool?
Should I stick to the original plan: Get out the gold spray paint and get jiggy wit it?

Again, your opinions are appreciated, and thanks for your votes.

Adam

Yeah golds!, im not a fan of the GG'* except on Green and sometimes White its pretty cool...i only like the aeroblades in body color like mine (probably cuz im partial to 'em )...for some reason the silver just looks funky
