Did you paint the underside of the hood/trunk/doorjams too? How much was the paint job?
seriously. I dig the orange with black wheels. Every time I see that color gt3rs, which is every time I go to MSR, it makes me cry.

it's better to just buy new rims in black than to powdercoat your stockers-i paid like 75-80 a wheel for my SVT's rims,

I payed $$$ to powdercoat wheels a few years ago. Then I started spraypainting them. My bronze wheels look fine with 2 years on them. I'll never pay $$$ again to change wheel color.
