    I've got a unique idea, what do you guys think?

    Hey there!

    I don't tihnk this has been done before
    But I have a black mk4 astra, sxi
    And I am thinking of getting my alloys powder coated white (I have never seen this done on the SXi alloys)
    I was also thinking, to match the white powder coated look, of getting the SXi badge on the side of the car, sprayed white to match the wheels

    What do you guys think?
    What would be the best way to spray the SXi badge?
    Could anybody photshop this for me?

    Thanks

    I asked this last year but I can't find the photoshop someone did of the look for me. I like it myself but as someone said, the cost for the refurb would for me be better spent on some 17's instead

    IMO white wheels should be left where they belong... in the 80's with mullets and shell suits
    Coupe now being broken for parts
    You know the one

    Enquire within

    haha love the wording, but I think, if done well, white alloys can look pretty swish.

    Personally I think it can be done - but you can't just whack a white set of wheels on a car, they need to tie in with subtle mods or stying to tie everything together
