    wheel finish - Ideas plz

    I was only talking to Simon_Dti, mickey b and a few others yesterday about this but remain undecided on the finish!!

    The 18s are comming off for a month or so and was going to get a decent finish put on them but am undecided!! they are going on a star silver astra G and I have thought of:

    Star silver (boring but matches car)
    Star silver with 2 stage blue pearl laquer
    White with 2 stage pearl laquer (not now it has been done my opel astra estate tho)
    Blue Metalic
    Black

    But remain undecided, as mentioned at MK meet i am quite keen on the silver with blue pearl - Any idea welcome!!!

    The blue pearl sounds good! Quite fancied something like that on mine but it would probably look better on your silver car.

    Mine are already ""high power silver"" but if crystal is like the rim on your BK's that is deffo an idea!!

    People obviously dont want straight silver or Black

    i've seen a set of 19's on a v6 clio which had been finished with a blue pearl, i've also seen it done on a tigra... will see if i can find pics but dont think i have any. It looked nice but make sure to only apply a couple thin layers of the lacquer as the tigra was over lacquered and the blue was too 'in your face' which wouldn't suit a silver car, the clio's were done just right and only seen in certain lights etc, looked gorgeous!!

    I wouldn't have black, black is too dark, if anything go for anthracite instead.

    The bodyshop i had mine done at also suggested having a white base with silvery blue lacquer, i saw a sample and it was LOVELY...!

    If u get a good pic of ur car i will photoshop several ideas onto it for u!
