Default Painted the Daisy's.

My brothers roomates miata has the silver daisy's.

So We decided to paint the insides black. I have seen where the lips were left silver on the outer ring. The rims look better but we wanted the apearance of a deeper lip.

In an attempt to do this we just painted the spokes. It gives the optical illusion that the lips are deeper.

Here are some terrible pics.

We didn't have time to take good pictures. The other cars were ready from the suspension swap at the shop.
So I didn't get to compare caps with no caps and chrome lugs.

Looks decent for a set of daisy's, you guys did a really good job masking them off.

Thanks.
We are going to paint the Mazda letters in the center caps red or blue.

I kinda like them without the center caps. But before I could go back around to snap the shots, he had popped them on.

Taking them off would of scratched the fresh paint.

LOL. I'm not a fan of the Daisy's either.

They look alot like Empi's on a VW. I'm thinking about drilling out the lug nut holes on the center caps and using the longer chrome lug nuts. It may give it more contrast. Then again it might just screw up a good set of center caps. LOL.

Those daisies look a lot better without the center cap. Pull them and see what you think.
