Wow, those rims look sick. I like the black with the 5 spokes. Simple and clean yet classy. If only rims like those were offered stock...

Almost done need to add custom painted center pieces those will come hopefully by the end of today they are drying as this post is written

Center pieces just painted still have one final touch to add that will be a surprise!

Going to get black or body color lugs depending on the center piece and caliper finished look. Will be silver for now though.

I covered the dart painted it black then after that was thoroughly dry i untaped the piece retaped it cut out the usual chrome/silver trim around the dart painted it with the body color paint same as the calipers and the tada you have customized center pieces.
