      How do you re-chrome it? Easy DIY or professionally done?

      Not a DIY i know of, there is a chrome plating place local to me so I'm going to get a price off them. So pretty much a pro job on them to be perfect id say.

      Congratulations on the purchase!

      What color is your car?
      I am interested in seeing the wheels mounted. That was my first choice of wheels before deciding on OZ Superturismo LMs

      I turned down my monitor and made sure to wear sunglasses for the full effect.

      Not a fan of black wheels, so, meh. Had black wheels on a previous car, wasn't for me. I actually do generally like the blackout look apart from wheels though.

      The daytime picture is pretty hot though. clean clean clean.

      Where did you get matte covers? Quality?
      Now that I blacked out my tails I need to do the logos too, to tie it all together.

      I dig it. Cadiz are becoming a rare breed given Prets are the only option now (I think). I've been thinking what plastidipping mine black on my lapiz blue. Thoughts...?

      Location says Croatia so the lights cost about 45,000 Euros but came with a Golf R attached.....they are standard in Europe.

      I think this is what you were actually looking for.

      Yeah, I did some research after asking the question, LOL. Might be an interesting way to go gloss black on my Pretorias without having permanent effects.

      As far as around town, absolutely. I live in NW Austin, and work central near Camp Mabry.

      Since I was on the roll and had some left over paint I decided to black out the logos. Don't follow DAP's directions, using metal screw driver will cause damage. I used thin plastic trim removal tool. You just need a little patience and the emblems will come off. I did break two small irrelevant tabs and destroyed the tool but oh well. Anyhow this is how they're gonna look like when I put them on tomorrow.



      Clear coated this piece just because



      Next step the R logos
