Nice, but I liked the "before" better. Enjoy!

Nice job!

Are they Seal Grey or darker? I can't tell from the pics.

oh oh oh hang on mate... this is absolutely stunning. Well bloody done to you.

Would be nice to have higher resolution pictures if you can. Got to show this to someone here who was thinking about doing the same but didn't had to balls to do it at the end (go figure!)

and I can't help to say that these porche rims are fuggly... having its pattern spinning in the reverse direction (see right side of the car). I still wonder why they haven't been exterminated in all honesty. Glad you found a way to get them somehow much nicer

They had a fair amount of surface issues, so I thought "what the hell", I can always paint them silver again.

thx for the extra pics. Shown this to my mate here this morning and he is going to do the exact same as you did (thanks on behalf!). I'm also seriously thinking about taking those dusty stockers out of my garage and give them a similar paintjob. They look absolutely awesome, nicest job I've seen so far on those cast-twisties.

From all the wheels I've seen I think those boxster stockers are the fuggliest of all. But you sir, managed to make them look somehow completely awesome. Nice work man

I personally think these wheels look better in factory silver also. But having had my last two cars silver/silver wheels, I'm over it. Just needed to change it up a little. And I think it adds just enough for me with the darker wheels. I like it.

Thanks for the comments.

I really like the darker color! They look custom and cool. Thinking of doing something similar with my track wheels. Nice job!

They will always look cleaner now. That's a plus.

Your next project should be painted bumperettes.
