    It's a pretty cool wheel it's two five spokes stacked on top of each other if that makes sense. They aren't all on the same plane one set sits about a 1/2" below the other

    #2 is my most favorite out of those choices.
    #1 is my second favorite.

    None of those choices would make me ashamed to be seen in public. LOL All 3 of those are some badass wheels. :nice:




    They used to run around this forum like lemmings... and FB happened. :fuss:

    I don't think you can go wrong with the first two. The third one may look too 'blingy' because of the wider spokes.

    Is it just me or does the Copper color paint pretty much leave you with chrome wheels being the best option? I have nothing against chrome fwiw

    Excuse me, I stand corrected. Polished aluminum* :rolleyes: with satin accents will look splendid with the copper paint over black or silver.

    So as some of you may know about my hood flying off at a car show because I was ignorant and didn't strap it down. I've decided to have it dropped of at exotic vehicle wraps down near me to have a black brushed aluminum vinyl wrap installed on it. Here's what the wrap looks like image.jpg

    I'll post up some pics of when it's done. If I like it I'll end up doing the roof and hatch and spoiler as well.

    Are you wanting to go this route because you can't get your Copper paint? They should be able to match the paint so you can re-shoot your hood.

    But at least you'd have the material for future repairs. Or you plan on wrapping every body part that gets scratched? jk
