This is from another post but I thought I would get some input. Thanks Robb for blackening the wheels and trim. I did the hatchet job lowering on it... word paint, along with the fog light rim... not to bad from a distance.

In the words of the Jungle Brothers "Too black, too strong"

Although the song then goes on to say "Can you feel it?" ... and maybe some will.

Ah, 1988, what a year.

That's a big no. I like black cars as much as the next guy...but that's just too much. With no contrasting elements, it's visually featureless. Might as well be a Camaro or something, because that car looks like something you might do to a domestic muscle car.

Wow..the more I look at it, the worse it gets. The lines are completely ruined by the elimination of the shiny stuff. Who would have guessed?

It was just a thought.

Put white doors on it and it would make a bad ass cop car.

it reminds me of KITT from the original Knight Rider. which would generally be a compliment i guess, but in this case, i dont mean it as one at all... remember, KITT is from the 80's. it's 2008. class it up a little.

Puts me in mind of a race-prepped car.

If you're going to do anything to those wheels, they would be better anthracite, rather than black. Anthracite is more subtle.

Black = Big no.

Someone mentioned anthracite, why not...

I have those rims and I think, even with a black car, the whole car would look much better by leaving them the way they are.

All black like this, all you need is too add a red running light behind the front grill and have people start calling you ¨Michael¨ (you know what I´m talking about)
