seeing that you don't want the regular colours (red,yellow or silver)... this only leaves the unique colours (pink, orange, purple)

my suggestion - lime green

...or you can be mega hektik and polish them uleh :P

EDIT: You need to sell me your old wheels to fit on my Mazda :wink:

Ride: DENTED UP OLD AUT WAGON

Location: Wellington
New Zealand

That tread pattern doesn't look like it left a five mm deep hole outside Chipmunks Villawood at all. Good tricky looking tyre bro. Black wheels all good, but have been putting my ones up on axles stands and running the car at idle in second gear... Holding all sorts of sand paper and angle grinder combo's against the wheel to try and clean the spokes outer faces and lip....

Kind of working. Should not have used proper wheels paint clear coat. Been through one million dollars worth of sand paper and still taking black and clear off.
:roll:

The car at the shopping centre next to the Sydney convention centre had its wheels changed from my exact ROH's to some gray Advanti racing ones before I left last Thursday. So much for showing the boss my wheels on a real racecar... although we dd get two pairs of some one hundred percent guaranteed ( verbally ) SKULLCANDY headphones for fourty dollars from Paddys market.

So, powder coat gray for the win. Or paint gaps between spokes with cheap black and remove black from outside lip and faces.....

if you want them to be noticable i would go for a red or a blue, red for tickford (not wanabe brembo) or a fpv blue..

if you want a clean not so noticeable look, go with a black or grey.....

Mhm definitely a fan of speedy cheetahs!

I reckon it needs more low before pretty brake calipers 8-)

Depending on what look you're after:

- Blue to make them stand out a bit but retain that factory look
- Black to make them subtle yet noticeable up close
- Silver for that stock factory look

IMHO though I reckon black.

The calipers were satin black from factory, thinking similar, these also have the tickford logo embossed in them, thinking I may go black again and just paint the tickford logo to come out a bit.

Suspension will more than likely end up being coilovers all round. the Ksport kit looks good, just gotta source $1200 for it.

Whack some vasoline on the tickford emblem so the caliper paint doesn't stick to it.
Easy peasy!

A few new developments have taken place, I have let some moths out of the wallet. Like Christmas hadn't exhausted the finances already.

New set of Plugs. TR55IX @ about $20 a plug!! Yeah I could have got them a bit cheaper off fleabay, but thats the price when you have time off work and want/have to do them now.

Quite a while ago EVL098 hooked me up with some new cats, I fiinally got around to getting them fitted. Thats what happens when you do mon-fri work, no time off to get s**t done.

What this equates to for me is, a car that runs a bucket load better, smoother and more responsive. I cannot say its any faster, cause I doubt it is, but it just feels like its doing everything better.

And at the same time, using less fuel!!

Minor update time, I FINALLY got around to fixing up my bonnet. Its only been since the car was written off SO long ago. Thought i should get of my a** and do something about it.

So, after our recent night out at Meguiars with a dozen or so others, I purchased a good spread of 3M carbon wrap.

Came out pretty awesome actually. Enough s**t, here are some pics.

Something is missing here..

I an ordering a bit more to do the front bit of the bonnet, and probably enough to do the engine cover, still in 2 minds about that one though. i will probably go with a white carbon wrap on the engine cover, see how is looks. I just don't want to go over the top.. The bonnet is already pretty bold.
