Had my wheels painted

Hey all. After a rather long day yesterday I got my wheels painted in the same colour as my cam cover. A couple of people knew the plan but I had had mixed responses- was it gonna be too lairy?

Ive only been able to upload one pic so far. I've got more on my laptop but thats being rubbish and I cant get onto to photobucket on there.

So here is the one pic so far,



Im going to try and get more uploaded later

Thoughts, opinions?

I like them.......something different from the norm.

Look a lot better than I imagined they would have.

We were going to the fuel filler but couldnt figure out how to get it off. Its been suggested to have the wing mirrors, handles and fuel filler done but Im concerned it could be too much

Don't do the fuel filler and other trim man; what happens if you get a different colour of aftermarket wheels for the car, down the line? The caramel fuel cap and trim will look odd, if say you got polished wheels or black wheels etc. Etc.

I like the colour not half as lairy as I was imagining - it's effectively a shade of bronze IMO
