Default tedious rim PS please (12 pix, 56K maybe )

Well, I am trying to get some ideas for the rims on my GP and Bonneville. I want to refinish both of them this spring / summer, and I have an idea that I think might look real nice, but might also look like ricer crap

I want to polish the outer lip, paint the crosslace black, then I am thinking of adding an accent to ONLY the front of the crosslace section, leaving the rest of the crosslace black. For the front I am thinking red, like on my car, would look good, but if not a huge undertaking, I would like to see some other colors also.

also, I would like a PS of these rims on my Bonneville.

SO, here are some pics of crosslaces that are already black, only need to add the red on the face of it.

If anything else is needed, let me know, I will see what I can come up with

And, here are my cars. IF possible, could you also PS the rims on each car??

I think it'll look good for sure on the red SSEI. Should make the car look newer and nicer by the condition of the rims.

looks better than I thought it would before I made it.

I didn't really understand everything you were asking for, so if you want more, clarify.

That actually looks better then I expected.....

Could you possibly take one of the closer up pics of the rim only and do that? Black on the inside, and red only on the face?

Basically just like the black ones are right now, but with only the face of the crosslace red.

That is what I figured it was, but I just wanted to be sure Basically, I was just looking for a close up, just like you just did :P

I am thinking I might try that and see how it looks
