Not my top pick of colors but it meshes well together.

Hope you will enjoy them when they are finished fully!

thanks. i was going to do the bright green again. i actually sprayed a centercap the color and was like...nah. ive always liked the bronze/copper look.

also replaced my front rotors and pads yesterday. brembo rotors and ebc greens only lasted 30,000 miles. and were completely toasted. ill post some pics. i just went the cheap route this time. im done dumping money on rotors and pads.

Are you going to try to keep the two chrome rings on the center cap chrome? Might be a nice contrast.

i thought about keeping the centers polished but 2 of them are in bad shape and i used metal filler on them so they will be painted the same as the faces.
finally some sunny pics.



and here are my brembo rotors.

Jesus, brake much fur?

Blah looking at the centers untouched I bet they'd look killer with the polished rings. No way to save them? Gotta be a way.
