sell it, buy a C4 vette

 

Then he'd have to make the same choice for the wheels on the C4.

If you like the orange you should powder coat the wheels orange.

 

If you get it done, step back and say "holy fuck, I love it" then it matters 0% what everybody else thinks.

I came across this on IG. I'm not a big fan of dipping cars but for testing ideas I think it's a decent option. Maybe this could help you out before taking the wheels off and breaking them down and all that.

I think the copper/burnt orange goes well with silver. Silver is pretty neutral and most any color could be made to work well with it, IMO.

I think the color matching cage idea would be perfect to tie that in.  It wouldn't be over too much over the top but still enough flash do get even more "Damn" comments than you already do.  After not seeing it for a couple of days I like it even more than before!

Plus you could color match the air tank when you go air lol

You could even to hard stainless line in the trunk for the air setup.  Kind of a throw back lowrider look.

Thought this air setup was bad ass.  Maybe not in a mustang but bad ass none the less

 

I'm not much of an air ride guy, but I really like that set up!  Maybe because it looks sooooo Steampunk.

From what I read the tank is actually a fire extinguisher from the 1930's.  I have seriously been considering some sort of hard line setup in my Saleen just for a clean subtle look.

Per his post on FB, his powder coater got back to him after having the wheels several days saying they didn't realize there was a clear powder coat over the brushed centers (well...no shit, of course there is. My HRE's have a clear powder coat on the centers too) and their price was now going to be $300/wheel. So yea, I think he's in the market for a new powder coater now.

well i'm extremely comfortable with painting. i feel i have a pretty good amount of skill with it and i may save $$ and paint the wheels. i feel like with the way i maintain wheels i can keep them looking great for a long time. the key is prep and choosing the right product....color wise lol. 

 

i may go dark on the centers....like dark grey

i am thinking a nice chartruse

 

 

i have to google half the shit troy says 

Don't fish much do ya?  

 

I first learned what color chartreuse was at around age 10 when I was in a local bait and tackle shop.  

But now the other colors I came to know through art and drafting.

I think the copper would look pretty good. I'm not usually a fan of colored wheels but I think your car could pull it off.
