I have seen the multicolor kidney surrounds though.

And I do drive an old Disco every day with bright blue painters tape for the gap at the top of the left rear window and missing door panels. And of course, a "Squirrel Nut Zipper" bumper sticker on the front bumper. I have no idea what it even means, little brother thought it was funny so he had me tape it off when I Plastidipped the bumper.

I always wondered what a black face with a gold/bronze lip would look like. Think it would look sick on a black car. Had something similar at one point. Lemme dig up some pics.

Here's some. Black face with copper orange lip:

This is how black wheels should be done on a cosmos E36!

When people paint/plastidip the whole wheel they just look like steel wheels that have lost the hub caps.

Thanks man. Biggest regret I have is selling those wheels. I'm now on the hunt for some style 5's once again.

If you already picked it doesn't matter, but I liked the pink, or the orange or the inverted orange/black combo. So what was the decision? Hope it was something bright.

Thanks man. Of course, handle it. Had them finished for a couple of months before I decided I was going to sell the car so I sold them off first and I ended up keeping the car. Now I'm on the hunt again

I'll probably do something different this next time around. Not sure yet.
