Careful, now...don't go picking on us "60's holdovers." Old habits die hard. LOL In 40 more years, some of you guys are gonna be Plasti-dipping your rims while your 16 year old grandson's are gonna be going, "Eww..., grandpa...that's nasty!" :grin:I was gonna same the same too shinny. Then again I blacked out all chrome on my car. Not a chrome fan on newer modern cars. Maybe on something from good old day back in the 60's or 70's but not on todays cars.
But hey if you like them thats what counts.
LOL That rim would make anything look better, even the wife!Too much Chrome for me. On a Cadillac yes but I'm having a hard time liking it on an Elantra IMHO.
You win the bet, Viper! I'm salivating like Pavlov's dog over those things. I like bright, shiny things. Soon as I can get all of my hair to fall out, I'll wax the dome with AutoGlym...after I claybar it to get the decades of fallout off the surface.Yah, too much chrome for me. I bet Rich is going to love them. To each his own.
They're perfect, Kevinvu! Size, pattern, and offset. With the right color backdrop, those things will stick out like a diamond in a goat's butt! Got a part number and source? I feel my wallet starting to quiver...kevinvu said:[/IMG]
I'm gonna have to look that up for pics to get an idea. Never thought about black chrome.Just a thought but how about taking that Chrome down to your favorite powder coating shop and have them changed just a bit to black Chrome? Black Chrome using Chrome as a base instead of a reflective powder coat under the black Chrome, now that is just dead hot.
Okie Dokie Rich, here are a few for you to peruse. I was thinking of doing this to my stock 5 spokes but don't have the coin just now. Media blast followed by Electroplating and then the translucent Black Chrome application. Unfortunately I'll probably never get it done but it was a nice dream on Lil Bits Red and Flat Black color scheme.I'm gonna have to look that up for pics to get an idea. Never thought about black chrome.
