The bumpers came like that, mines a 2000 model. I'd like to get something other than SVT 5 spokes, but they'll do for now and stockers for winter. Got a surprise color combo for them this year. My paint is terrible if you ever see it in person. Very few mods you have a lot more than me haha but they will come. Finally got my clone on here haha awesome man.

Like the idea behind the wheel color, but peel that off a take your time next time. With a little time and patience dip can look great. Here it is on my sons Ranger wheels (the are Elbrus brand but were silver before this):

I think I caught a glimpse of this in another thread, I like that the one spoke was left silver. Yeah, my big mistake was that I tried to do this at the end of a weekend just to see what the gold would look like. After a couple weeks on the car, it's faded from bright gold to a more tolerable color but it's coming off to be redone properly soon. I thought about taping off the stock wheels for a silver/black effect but I can't decide how to do it with these wheels. I'm not putting the gold on it when I redo it though, it doesn't work right with the color.

Somewhere there are pics of your wheel style dipped like you say you want. I am on the search for them.

I really like everything you have done with your car. lucky find on the parts to. Iv been to my local U-PULL atleast 7 times in the last 2 months only to have gotten small stuff i needed. I did find some leather seats (or maybe fake leather) but they were tan and i want some black ones.
