    Well I found a pretty decent match in spray paint "krylon outdoor metallic" and decided to paint over the white primer job the previous owner tried to do when he did a 2tone job

    Before:(

    Pretty happy with the result, even though it looks good from 10 feet, but it only cost me 5 cans worth

    I was thinking about trying that:p

    Today im going to paint the red portion of the wheels, white, I think it would look better against the gold

  6. I kinda like the red. But if you dont, how 'bout the same color green as the interior, just to tie it all together?

    No greeen on the wheels.

    NIce rattle can job. It's refreshing to see a low buck approach every once in a while.

    That is a great job with the rattle can blend in!!! At first the color change for the wheels didnt quite agree with me because what you had looked good to me but I kinda like the green.......

    Go with the aqua/teal! that matches the interior very well..
     
  26. I like the Aqua....alot! Very pseudo-OEM looking! But everyone describes me as "different", and I like it that way. Otherwise, we'd all be driving a blue Prius.
