What do you guys think?
I had little curb rash on one of the rims so i am going to have that fixed!
Figured since i am doing this i should paint the lips orange to match?

Whats everyones opinion on this?

It does not necessary mean i will do it but I am considering it!

You mean they're not orange already?

In other words that looks so right, that I can't believe it's not already done up that way....god damn that car is stunning. By the way, you have an all black interior, right? Any pictures? You dyed the dash, doors, etc. etc.? Details?

BTW ..... my 6 Year old daughter LOVES how your car looks!

No, I think it's too much. Looks like the burning brake rotors during a race down in Richmond! :zdevil:

Nah, I think the chrome helps break things up a bit and make it more interesting to look at.

The deep chrome lip makes the car, breaks it up just enough. Orange on those wheels would be a sin.

To be short...Hell No to the orange lip.

Since you are doing a repair I think a Brushed lip would look killer since there is so much lip there it would really POP, but in a subtle way. ;)

Lets keep in mind also that road dubre, sand, rocks, etc..get caught in those centers and will pepper the paint finish in time and if its a big enough pebble/rock it could do lots of damage with that big of a lip surface. Think about it...
