I have the stock Alloys. And yup you can see them. Not very much though. Just enough to accent the green. I didnt bother covering the center part of the brake pad on the calipers i just painted them gold. I'm gonna change the pads soon anyways. I used Stove Bright Gold Hi-Temp Paint.

I got the new pictures up. Yeah i know the edges of the rims a lil beat up. Stupid owner before me. I just didn't have the time to take the SOS pad to it.





I have all new pictures up at cardomain as well. So go check them out!

Pretty slick, man! Now if they'd just come up with a way to hide the balancing weights.

Looks good, Bass. Just remember not to use Brake cleaner around them. I used a ceramic paint on my calipers, and I'm hoping they hold up to it. If not, I've got more!
