Any body ever darkened the limited edition rims I know they are shadow chrome but mine just came in the standered alloy color and I like the shadow chrome but thinking they might look even better if they were just a tad darker

I have finally plastidip rims and painted calipers...decals didn't work and will look at again. Had to wait two months for plastidip...here was the process
Rims off - clean calipers
Image
Clean rims really well
Image
Rims off - first coat of plastidip (simply looks like black dots...waited 30 minutes between coats and gave 5 coats...
Image
Falcon with spare set of Mondeo rims - with young kids putting car on 4 axle stands makes some people uncomfortable...easy option and safest...looks bloody awful
Image
Tried decal - failed miserably...it peeled over the decal edge and lifted...will look at doing it again and probably off the car next time

Looks good mate needs to be lowered though! With the decals its actually really hard to get it right you pretty much have to buy a whole new set off ebay for 50bucks and spray them properly and then apply them to the car.
Obie.

I TOTALLY SAW YOUR CAR TODAY!! Lol
I live in Dalby, headed in to Toowoomba to watch RIPD at the strand. I thought it looked familiar with the black roof and black wheels.

Mate just a heads up but you will likely lose power with cams but it will feel stronger through the gears and sound awesome..... I actually made roughly 8 kws less when I put atomic stage 4s in my na. Seems to bethe case most the time. Just ask around.

You reckon it lost power because the cams were too big? What were your supporting mods if you don't mind me asking. I'm curious also, as you're not the first to say that the stage4 cams from atomic will net less power, but the car will be faster and pull harder through the higher gears.

Only did valve springs underdrives tune and exhaust. Was going to get head work done but couldn't be bothered buying another fg motor just for the head to be worked..... at the time I couldn't have it off the road so gave up on that.
If I was to do it again I would have just supercharged it would have cost me the same for bigger gains.

It did feel stronger up to the end of third gear but varied on the days conditions alot more after third gear.
