    Looks good! Really bold and it stands out nicely on the all black coupe. Iv noticed a lot of people are going to gold in rims a lot lately.

    Everyone was doing black on black so I went with something new. "New" or "Original" only lasts so long I guess LOL

    That is absolutely beast!!!

    I thought I was the only one that loved gold on black Caddy's.

    I once saw an old black Eldorado with Gold rims; bumpers, and grills and it looked BOSS!!! One of the best Caddy's I had ever seen at the time.

    You should paint your brake calipers black like the car and those sick rims will jump out even more! I think the red calipers take some of the attention away from those nice rims! Black and Gold = Beast!!!

    It looks great. Have you considered painting the mesh portion of the lower rear bumper,gold as well. Just my opinion but I think it would tie in nicely with the wheels.

    I've got a couple things in mind, don't want to go overboard with the gold, but I'm gonna try a few things. I'll keep pics updated.

    Thanks for the feedback, place did an amazing job on the powder coating

    OMG! What a mistake! You should have done the gold plastidip first to see how bad that's gonna look. Now you're stuck forever. Maybe you can plastidip them over to green or orange to look better.


    OK, I'm just having fun since you said there's no going back. hehehe That looks good! You'd get stopped by everyone in town here with all 3 sports teams being black and gold. I agree with blacking out the calipers to make the wheels 100% of the focus. Very well done.

    Some bodies got jokes! LOL I appreciate the honesty, and maybe I'll plasti dip over the gold when I get tired of it

    What did you do with the grill? Is that painted, plastidip, or something else?

    I like the red calipers. I think it adds to the gold wheels.
