They look really good. Very impressed with that gloss black, did you paint them yourself?

I am fairly happy with the results myself and I think thta the Ford Sea Grey will go well with the moondust silver car. What is everyone's opinion on it?

 

P.S. - Wait until you all see the centre caps ;)  :ph34r:

They look awesome Stephan,
Some caliper paint in the same orange would really finish it off and show off the alloys better,
