New look for the Magnum 500
#1
As some of you may remember my Magnum 500 were in really bad shape and I had already painted them matte black. 

But as always it wasn't good enough for me plus the spray paint started flaking so I had the media blasted and powder coated. Instead of the fällst black I went with a dark gray with a slight bluish tint so that they would look less "I spray painted them myself" but more like they came like that trombone the factory. 
I kinda liked the finished product until I put them on the car. I dunno.... 
what's your verdict on this?

Needs some sort of two tone in my opinion. Maybe some gold leaf, some sort of painted on ring around the circumference.

With center caps might be alright. Just needs something to break it up.

To totally sidetrack this...

Every time I see chrome and paint magnum 500's I think of Buick Riveras. Anybody else? I don't know if I have the timeline correct but I always think of the magnums as a rip off of the Buick wheels.

I like the color combo. One thing you might want to consider is turning the tires around so the black sidewall faces outward.

Better than the black but, still a little bland for my taste. Center caps may help. Chuck
