    Wheels Powdercoated "Arctic Fire"

    Got my car back from the powdercoaters this evening and i am mightily chuffed by the result.

    Discussed in a different thread that i had made a last minute change from titanium grey to a colour called "arctic fire".

    Colour is basically a matt black with a green/purple flip coat over.

    Here is the outcome, it has certainly had a few looks when i took the car out a spin. Dont know if thats for all the right reasons but i love the colour. It constantly changes and reflects different variations of green and purple in the light which the photos dont really do justice

















    I think the car now looks like it needs lowering.....

    So what do you all think? I need to dress the tyres and give the car a proper clean, but i couldnt be happier with the outcome

    i would have went with a plain colour imo, the car is to standard to have some snazzy colour wheels on

    Really appreciate all the positive comments, was worried they might be marmite wheels with a mixed opinion.

    Theres loads of wee bits n bobs i want to change about the car and i intend to get stuck in the next few months.

    Lowering will probably be first on the list because the stance just aint right at the mo!

    As stated mate, this is just the start, i have plans for changing a lot of features on the car so it wont look so standard for too long
