Love that rim color: what would I instruct my painter if I'd want a similar rim color? (you'd still have them exclusive for UK and Aussie-stan)

I just don't want to imagine what comes out if I say smoked chrome or hyper black to a workshop here in Santiago! I am saving these pictures though, in case I find a way.

Like the industrial/commercial backdrop, try doing a few in sepia and B&W effect, would look stellar IMO

Shane,

I love the mods, they look awesome, especially the interior piano black touches. Very nice indeed!!

Now I just need to get my car sorted

The piano black interior is incredible and now I'm considering doing the same thing. Nice job!

Cheers

Just be aware with the piano black, finger marks and scratches but then you don't really need to touch any of these areas and a microfibre cloth does the job to clean easy, just recommend a coat of wax for a bit of added protection, simples!
Mine does have a couple of coats of lacquer including a scratch resistant but it only does so much, but WELL worth it for the finish it brings.
