Randy, stick with black or gunmetal, or even silver. And I would just get you a set that you can just paint away on. That way you get tired of it, take a weekend and switch it up.

Looks like poo. But thats just my opinion. Silver, black or gunmetal are going to be your best bet that will please both yourself and a decent portion of people that will look at it.

Theres some stupid little Cobalt SS (t/c) that runs around yellow with black rims/yellow lip. Its different, not too bad looking I suppose. I think part of that also has to do with the design of the rim also.

I think it may look good, only after I paint the rest of the car in a fresh coat of blaze yellow, otherwise I think it may look ricey.

There are wheels that are aluminum colored, and there are wheels that used to be aluminum colored until someone pored liquid ugly on them. That's my 2 cents.

Well I had three estimates done on some paint(just the non-yellow stuff) and all 3 were 2000 and above. So I pulled the old gun out of the shed, got out some sanding blocks and went to town.
This weekend I tackled the front, maybe next weekend I'll do the rear.

The hood, grill and front lip are now Blaze yellow. Color doesn't match exactly, but more than the black primer ,wrb and white pieces I've been rockin'

I'll post pics after I wet sand and buff

Good job! I want more closeups! Also, you should do the side mirrors too just saying.

EDIT: I literally refreshed this page 5 minutes later to see if you had replied with more pictures.

The paint matches most of the body
Drivers fender and half the drivers door are a shade lighter, along with the front bumper and the front lower portion of the passenger fender. So some dumbass repainted those panels and blended. F**K!!!

As soon as I finish the rear and wet sand and buff than black out my grills, I'll get more pics up. All Blaze was definatly the way to go.

And paul, I aint skeered to let your freinds know I prefer dark meat...
