Default Not Sure Really...pics inside

Ok, so I had my x drilled and slotted rear brake install today...took 3hrs...anyway, my caps have been color matched to the car and I'm undecided what to do. I will be doing some shiny grey metal speck spraypaint this week, but for now I'm rollin on diamond white paints caps.

Here is a pic before



And after



They look decent, but I think a more shiny grey/chrome look might be better.

Ideas?

The shiny grey chrome may be better... but the angle of your second shot makes it really weird to tell... you got a camera now, hop outside and grab a better angle

I wonder if the 01 SSEi chrome rim centre caps have the same mounting bracket style as the 00...that would be a helluva lot easier, but...euh work in progress

Well a solution has been reached. A friend of ours that did the repair to my fender last December is going to speak with a gent from Trimline. He is gonna get me 6" wide strips of chrome decal to place on the centre cap

That should fix it up nice!

Doesn't flow at all with that white.... Chrome Lug nuts with nothing would look better... Maybe fill in the middle around them.
