My Latest Dip

I change the color of my wheels slightly often. This is the latest color, "Real Red Pearl". This is the first product actually from dipyourcar.com that I've used and I got to say, I think it looks damn good.

Base coat of black. Top coat of red pearl.

No centercaps for now, ordered some plain black ones to go in.

And for the pictures:

Are opinions welcome? Because I personally think this looks terrible, to each his own

Edit: just noticed those lugs, wtf is going on with the G37 community

Lol, opinions are fine. I'm a big boy

It's a good way to see how a certain color will look on the car before buying a set of wheels. Alot cheaper, too.

Maybe if I actually dressed my tires just a little bit it wouldn't look too bad....

Execution: 10/10
-I think they turned out extremely good!

Presentation: 5/10
-Color turned out really good regardless of personal preference. Lost points for the lugs...Those look awful regardless of the application. What's going on with those rotors?

Bonus points: +1
- Boots
- Effort (shotgun made me smile)

I like the color - definitely need to see it on the car though.
As far as lug covers (guessing those are not actual lugs)... well... it's bad... real bad.

What can I say, I like to put spikes on things.... They are actual lugs. Lol, I have them on my truck too. Rotors are due, but I'm holding out to upgrade them, bigger rotors and bigger calipers, stainless brake lines, etc.

It's been raining and loggers are using my driveway currently and I am reminded why I've always kept a 4x4...And it was just cleaned, too...

I just realized my original pictures lost the descriptions I inserted them with...

First pic is the can of red pearl. Duh.
Then the final pearl drying.
Right after I put them on. The rotors got some rust sitting in one place for a couple days.
A picture of them in daylight. Originally taken to show the gun to a friend. Like a shotgun glamour-shot, lol

My car is color code KAD. I wouldn't mind if the stock wheels were a gun metal color too.

This is with the snow wheels on (black/silver trim)
