    Dont think my Xmas mod worked

    Tried spraying the center of my wheels green, but i think it looks out of place. Will have to stay like that for now, but will prob go back to black when it gets walmer

    I scuffed a wheel, and bought some halfords gloss black paint and its a perfect match, so i always knew i could put it back. They needed doing as the paint put on the centers was comming off from when they were referebed, so i thought why not. worth a try like said, but never mind.

    My other Xmas mod is looking good tho, but you will have to wait a few weeks before it is complete

    im with the rest im afraid mate worth a try though because you never know.. it could be that it looks a different green than the paint, perhaps an exact match may look better, but still reckon black is best.

    also, ever considered tinted/black side repeaters?

    The green is a close match, but its a pain of a colour as it looks different from every angle!!

    Never thought about the side repeaters, but the clear does match my rear lights

    Nah there is something about the centres that doesn't quite look right. Although for an alternative idea spraying the rim of the alloy in the same green at the body work could look interesting? Touch more work though i'd say.

    Good work for trying something new though mate.
