Before or after

Today i plasti dipped my rims. i thought it would be a good idea to see if i liked the blacked out look or not. i also tinted my tailights(looks darker than it is in pics) and plasti dipped the tailight bezels. Do you like my car now or before?? I almost think the black on black is way over done, but i think it looks good. I will not be keeping the plasti dip for too long. im getting the zl1 replicas from factory41 if i stay with this look.

I'm gonna go against the majority here, I like it all blacked out except for the wheels. You have to have some contrast to make it all work.

I would say before, but I've never been a fan of the blacked out look either. Ultimately, its whatever you like.
