Default new rims update pics

Finally got a buddy of mine to take some shots of my car: my camera is the biggest 100 dollar pos in the world, while his is a baller *** nikon.

new rims:







the gold 17's were the heavier than the failboat, rubbed, and were too big, so they had to go. these are 16's, bbs, and weigh almost same as the stockers. They are off a mini cooper.
I think it looks good with the fm/agx combo (thanx Scuba Steve). Next I will paint them bronze.

Just sharing

Yes Im planning to find the dark bronze found on work and volk rims and use that. they are off a mini cooper s, but ive googled it and looked around at the coopers locally, and only 1 year seem to have these, so they are definitely not common (a plus imo).

Looks great 18! That car looks so much nicer than when you first posted pics of it. Keep up the good work.

Thats the day I got it. That is how the previous owner kept it, and why I was able to get a 2000 miata with 50k miles and clean title for 2500

Bronze?! Figures that you'd pick the one color that's hardest to do a convincing job of...



How's that?

FWIW, I fail at Photoshop, too. I've been using build 4.12 of JASC PaintShop Pro since '96. It doesn't support layers, but apart from that gives you damn near everything you could want.

Car looks fantastic....it has come a long way since I've seen it last.
Looks like the window spotting issue has been taken care of.
Great work....
