Photoshop request - my 264s in gunmetal

Any chance someone could photoshop my wheels in gunmetal?

The finish on them is pretty bad from Hawk DTC track pads. They need to be redone, which I'll do in the spring. I'm leaning towards gunmetal / anthracite. Could someone do a quick photoshop job for me?

Thanks!

there you go, your wheels inside gunmetal. i couldn't find any raw gun metal melted down so hopefully the actual guns will work.

i think it looks pretty good.

Is the brake dust on the hawk pads same as stock? After about a week of driving on my stock wheels and brakes, I'd always have gunmetal rims. Now it gets pink.

Not entirely sure if this was the colour you were going for but there you go.

I even did another one adding a red pinstripe, some cool flames and a racing spoiler if that kinda thing floats your boat.

Stick with black IMO...

On a more serious note though. I haven't seen any 264's painted gunmetal or anthracite but I have a friend with anthracite aftermarket wheels. I'm not the biggest fan. He has a black coupe though.

I personally think staying silver for black is the way to go. Even when clean, gunmetal or anthracite tend to look like just a normal wheel covered in brake dust. My 2c.

I've always been a fan of anthracite, though. Especially with 40-30% tint, and I think it would complement the shadow line trim.
