Final stage of wheels. They are far from perfect but again learned a lot. First time dealing with paint reactions and cracking. I like the look and may get them professionally done next year but for now they will do.

The car is likely going to be a deep red or black, haven’t settled on a color yet. I just wanted a wheel color that popped a bit.

Red or black it will look nice. Gold looks good with just about any color, it also looks good with white, silver, blue, etc.

I agree, have to settle on a color one day. Car is at the shop for engine work so decided to try my hand at painting. Once it’s back and I drive it for a bit will get into paint and body work.

Should I match my center console to the deep red I plan to paint the car or to the gold I painted the wheels? Currently it is silver because I matched it to the door handles. Debating changing out all the silver pieces.

I wouldn`t paint the console the same gold as the wheels, I would go with the red that you plan on painting the car with. As far as painting all the Silver pieces, that`s a matter of preference.
