Transformation to the Darkside!!!

Recently transition my appearance from chrome to black. Had my chrome rims powdercoated gloss black on lips and center satin black. Plasti-Dip the grill, rear light bezels, and SS emblems on front and rear. First picture is before and the rest are after.

Get those calipers painted or pc. PC is better in my mind. Same place should be able to do them. Pick a color that pops! Just my .02! Looks good!

Yes I know I need to take care of the calipers but I'm not sure of the color yet. I'm thinking red or maybe black with Camaro SS in red.

I like it better without the chrome. A red stripe on the wheel lip would really set them off in my opinion...

I like the color but not sure that would match my car. Maybe something a little more sharper red.

I always like chrome over black, but those wheels definitely look better black

I like it better now. Perhaps painting the calipers black and keeping the words in red would look nice!
