    For some reason shot #2 looks like absolute horrendous orange peel going on. 3, 9, & 10 look sweet.

    They are CCW SP20s... but due to complete negligence on my part, they are not as nice as they should be.

    I am either going to powdercoat them black or bronze... I need your guys help on that. PLEASE.

    Very tastefully done. Not a fan of the eyelids though I know some on here are. To me they are boy racer and you've done a good job at keeping everything else very classic looking. I wouldn't do the wheels bronze personally.

    A few things you may want to consider...

    If you want that racer/modded look then go black (bronze was a very short lived trend). Murderd out is even old school, over played and outdated. I personally would polish them or go with some form of Silver/Gunmetal. All depends on how you want your car to look. I'm a wheel, suspension, tint guy. All of my other stuff I do would take an enthusiast to know.

    I have mine powdercoated anthracite. Between the rotor caliper and wheel it gives just enough contrast. Perfect IMO
