Default No pictures yet - but will post when taken

Was going to wait until they were cleaned up and I get the new tires... but
the car looks a lot better to me with the "chrome" type wheels and non staggered tire sizes.

Found the Argent color paint for the wheels and have it ordered from LMR.

I have the same thoughts, but I wonder if it will take away the look of turbin wheel. So my thought is I have a couple extra caps sorta junk. I will play with some ideas on them before making a mistake on caps I want to keep on there.

Default Painted caps with Argent looks like new

The Argent paint on the center caps looks great.....matches perfectly.

Will change my photo on my profile since posting pictures on this site is done with stone age technology....

Not the best photo site for the car but it shows the newly cleaned up wheels and painted center caps.

Why don't you just get a photo bucket account and upload photos there and copy the image link in your posts here

Default Because that is old fashioned techonology

The "better" websites let you post photos directly... I have other methods
such as my Skydrive but refuse to use Photobucket etc to post forum
pictures...

Just my choice... it takes more storage and better website management. Someday, hopefully, this Forum will upgrade.

Default I apologize - wrong Mustang site!

I was wrong about this Forum.. it is one of the modern sites for posting
pictures.

I just go to too many sites and got confused... thanks!

Paint works on the wheel as well - re-coated one wheel to see how well it will look when dry.
