As title, it's brand new with the 17" wheels, any views on having the wheel colour? it's a powder coat polished GM Grey I was thinking of having and also thinking of having front calipers and rear drums done in Red.

Your thoughts please.

Cheers, Roger.

Thanks Lee, just not sure about having calipers and drums in red, don't want it to seem to much like a ST2 wannabe, that's why I'm after peoples thought.

plasti dip is big in the usa, it's a great idea because you can just peel it off, but I think you can only get a matt finish on it? I could be wrong. As to the life expectancy of it I have no idea. Still a good alternative.

Well there is a place not far from me that can do all 4 wheels for 80 pound plasti dip

And pc would cost between 250 and 300

If cost is swaying you then plasti dip is your best bet Ben, it' a good alternative and like you say a lot cheaper, also if you don't like the look it's easier to go back. Just peel it off.

Yeah make sure you get some detailed pixs up but if you are worried about it looking like a ST wannabe, black alloys look really good on a White car and there is one on Autotrader with black optional extra 17's and looks really smart

No, I've been down the whole mod road before with scooby's etc.

just the wheels and front calipers plus internal lighting, oh, I've ordered philips silver's for the indicators front and rear and a "S" badge.

I've put the lockwood sills on, they look ok.

Might look into some better front bulbs but not to sure yet, tonight will be first run home in the dark.

Just an update boys & girls.. got the car back today from AWR in Bury and I must say I am well pleased with the powdercoat job on the wheels and the paint job on the calipers.

"Polished Gun Metal Grey" is the colour.

I have also put the "S" badge on grille & de-tango'd the front and rear.

That colour looks perfect on a white car. Always thought black wheels were just a little OTT for me but that does look really good, great choice of colour.

When you get time can you do some pics of the whole car, side on.
