    Nice job, but i prefer the white ;) (i have the same car, same color :p)

    i will post pic after i mount them was busy so istill havent put them in tires

    looks great, so what color is the paint, A metal paint, like the spray chrome??

    also, In the photos, It looks like the clear coat really gave it a more reflective shine.. is that true or just in the photo

    last question, as for the beer, Bottel or can?

    don`t know my uncle uses it to paint MDF it was matte black thats why i added clear coat, i think its the same used to paint cars.
    when wet the matte was pretty shiny but not after it dried out, so yes the clear coat is responsible for all the shine.
    we used bottle but can is ok too.

    Great job. Hard work but worth it. You get A +.
