Default 8-Ball Paint Scheme

So I pulled the car into the garage yesterday to load some stuff in the back and happened to park it close enough to the purple lambo to get a reflection on the paint that struck me as kinda cool.

The metallic purple highlights down the door and on the front molding fins look sweet.

Not bad, but I prefer the clean black look. You thinkin pinstriping or custom paint?

What happened to the 20 spokes?

I don't think he'* painting it, it'* just a reflection he thought was cool.

When did you get swoopies!? (probably a long time ago I'm just out of the loop)

LOL I've always had swoopies they came with the car. However I bent one a while back and had an extra set of rubber on the honeycombs which I ran until they umm...wore out. Then I got a new swoopie from Ed Morad, put new rubber on them and put them back on the car about 2 months ago.

For some reason I thought your car came with the 20 spokes. It'* been a long time since I've seen 8-Ball.

My other 00 SSEi came with them. I bought the original rims that came with BADSSEi from Scott a few years ago when I bent my swoopie rim and basically ran them until the rubber was gone. So basically I have two sets of rims for my car plus the honeycomb set on the wife'* 00 SSEi.

Todd, that actually looks pretty good. If you did a 'ghost stripe' there, I think it would be badass. You should look into it.
