    Awesome progress! No more 4x4 suspension yay!!!! Looks good with the RPF-1s. Are you planning on painting the wheels a different color? They look good, but I'm not the biggest fan of gold wheels on a silver car.

    it took me a couple times of looking at it to decide whether i like the gold wheels or not. i do like them. but they would look good in black or silver as well

    I put them on as a test fit to see how they looked on the silver color and it wasn't as fugly as I was expecting.

    I have to repair a few rust spots and the front bumpers paint is chipping pretty badly so I'm going to repair the rust and plastidip the whole car matte white. Then when the rust comes back in a year or two, I'll repair it and Plastidip that section over again.

    The gold wheels will look much better on a white car.

    *disclaimer - I'm not Plastidipping the car because it's a trend right now, it's just a cost effective way of a paint job I can redo after rust repairs.

    As the official hater of everything that is plasti-dipped. I accept your explanation and I will allow it. Haha.

    Has anyone actually tried to get it off of a wheel? imo it would be tough to get it all off since some wheel designs have tight nooks and crannies. I suppose I am another non-believer.
