Looking to change the look for little $$$.......

Well my wedding is coming up next month so I dont have much cash...but I want to change the look of my focus. These were when I bought the car two months ago. Since then I've used a polishing compound on the car and it looks great....no more pink bumper.

I want to use some duplicolor wheel paint and paint my stock wheels.
Which color should I go with....open to suggestions.
Oh.. and I plan on painting the black trim on the door and rocker panels red...but that will come in time.

Gunmetal looks cool on about any color. But with your nice black windows and skirts and trim a nice glossy black would probably look sweet too.

Yea I was thinking about a graphite or gunmetal.....probably put a few coats of clear on it to give them a nice shine.....any pics of this done??

I thought about the duplicolor in bronze also but I dont think it will flow as good as the graphite or gunmetal...
