Impreza WRX STi ++ Just Picked up my Rays 57F from my painter - Silver to Gold =)

I had my Rays off my car since last december. Tires were trashed so it was time to take them off and put winters on.

I always wanted Light and Strong awesome quality Gold wheels.
I was able to get these Rays for awesome deal from Jake, but they were silver.

So I was thinking about powdercoating.... but desided to paint instead, plus
I have a very good friend who does all my paint work.

Used very good quality Sikkens paint and matte clearcoat.

The finish turned out to be amazing. Well at least to my liking =)

I know not everyone is fan of Gold wheels but I absolutely love Aspen White and Gold combo.


Well. Here is some pictures for all you Gold Wheels lovers.


This is the old finish.




and New =)


ps. He didnt take of the weights =), but I will fix that tommorow.
