Thanks!!! :) I liked it too when I saw it on Aidensgrand's car! I just had to get a pair for myself! And they have proven worthy plenty of times!! Those matched with the door handles really makes the sides of the car pop out!!

I thought that it was strange that nobody knew where to run the power.

I can't take the credit. I think RPPS was the first to do it.

Shattered, I might have to steal your rims for myself.
Do it! I wasn't in the market for rims but I couldn't resist when I saw them. They match perfectly.

S.S what you are useing to clean the engine?
...a wet rag. Nothing special. He's only a few months old so cleaning is still easy.

Just in case the pictures are deceiving , does the blue on the tires match the shade of blue on the car properly? or does it look off?

I was going to just paint my engine cover but looking under the hood of Shattered Stars, I may be just taking the spray can to a few other parts like the intake and fuse box.

SS - Did you rub them down with a little sandpaper before painting or just light coats straight over the top?

The blue part of the wheels has an anodized look to it and what I mean by that is that the shade of blue changes depending upon the angle you view it from...just like the Corsa paint. Short answer, yes they match. And IMO they look AMAZING in motion!

Lightly sanded with 600 grit. Then Rustoleum engine primer and engine enamel. I didn't end up liking the engine enamel color so I repainted with my leftover caliper paint (VHT) then many coats of Rustoleum engine enamel in clear.
