Wheels just been done

They look absolutely stunning. Face on without any direct light they are just gloss black. Slightest bit of direct light and they come to life. A complete custom one off colour. [Image: 377f6fd3517e1081abec3ebccdf1157b.jpg]

great looking wheels, how much did the colour set you back?

The actual paint was free cause I mix auto paint at work. Paid £40 a wheel for one of my customers to spray them.

Nice colour. The downside of black wheels is the contrast between them and the tyres. Tyres will always look sh1te if they are not dressed. Smile see mine. [Image: 5f1edc97a7f38403c9c3a8a02d3837a5.jpg]

Do you do rattle cans at all?

I’m planning a full respray but want to get the right colour first, I have the colour in mind I just needs more metallic in it.

I am going to be building a portfolio of custom colours, if you can give me a rough guide of what you want I can see what I can do. The colour Iv made for my wheels the closest colour to it is a special order colour at £300 a litre. I can mix it for a lot less.

Could definitely do something. Needs more metallic in there. Could do a multi grain metallic, only issue is with adding metallic is you have to balance the rest of the tinters as metallic makes it more silver.

Just made this up quickly, picture doesn’t really do it justice. Same colour just varied the metallic to a course and extra course and added a bit of pearl.
