I have a guy that sprays wheels. Should I go black gloss, gunmetal gloss or natural? They look unfinished and I didn't particularly like the black and silver ones you can get.

Personally, I'd go gloss black. With the white exterior and darker tints, it will make the black really pop! 

 

Good luck on whichever you decide. Hopefully you'll upload some pics when the job is complete.

Ok so I had them done a color called Magnetic which is a grey with a metal flake. Haven't had it all washed up yet. When it's detailed and sunny I'll take more pics but here's what it looks like now. Sorry I can't get the last pic to not post upside down.

Thanks guys. I tried to take pics in different angles with different light but they really don't do it justice. They look so much better in person. Not sure what the process is. I'm assuming they are sprayed similar to how they would paint the body. Any thoughts on smoking the taillight bar? Yes or don't mess with it?

Smoking the tails would follow the contrast theme on your ride. If that's what you like then go for it.

Needless to say we'd love to see the effect.

Beauty Lincoln.
