Allright, i had some spare time so i picked up a project i've been thinking about for a year now :P Painting my spare rims for the winter!! :D At this point i just done one, wanted to check first if the color of the rims make a good combo with my car. And i think it does, so one of these days i'm doing the rest aswell :)

Allright, here are the pics! :D

I just noticed a minor difference in color, but that will probably be due to the heavy wax-coating on my car :rofl: I will put the good ol' clay bar to good use and after that wax the PVO to make it look EXTRA good :P :lol:

yeah was planning to do so, but gotta figure out a way to get the tint off easily. It's not allowed to put on an aftermarker tint your lights, but it's ok if you buy them like that like my led tails . :roll: :P

This might help, this way you can make your own and peel them off if you get crap for them being tinted.

yeah lug key, i still need some cap because you're not the first to say i'm missing a nut :rofl:

Well, it's 'just' 17", nothing that huge IMHO.. Probably the color and model of the rim is what's making it look bigger :)

I used a Motip rattle can, color code 51076.
I hope this is enough for you, there's no such thing as color name on the can...

and next month i will go to a dyno to see where i'm standing horsepower-wise and draw my plan from there :)

:-k

Your car is rated 132hp at the crank now. You have a manual, so that helps. Without the Magnum set-up, 150whp will be very hard to do with bolt-ons.

That said, you have some nice stuff going on there. In for the dyno numbers :thumbup:

@Dante: it's doable. A dutch neon owner has 186bhp / 164whp with only boltons, without magnum setup ;)

...how? he has edited the software himself. and i am in for that version too :p
