View Full Version : Need help with wheel color

08-14-2012, 06:06 PM
I'm painting my daisies soon. I had them just sitting around, and now that they're all primed and drying, I'm torn on the color.

Red 91. Has a hardtop. I'm going for a vintage look, ultimately. I won't be able to slam the car because of SCCA rules for the class I'll be in for the next 2 years.

The general style:

I've actually already commissioned a set of magnet roundels. I need to call the guy back to confirm, but it would be very similar (with a black outline.) Too bad this is a NB...

Wheel colors I'm considering:
Baby Blue (bright)

Leaving the center caps off... if someone can photoshop the blue wheels (light, aqua blue) it might help? Maybe I <3 Flippy Headlights can get in here and post some side shots of Amy back when she was red and had gold wheels?

I say definitely not blue.
If it were me I would paint em white.

I'm torn between red/gold and red/white. I'm only going gold because it will stay cleaner, longer.

Yes, I also like white daisies!

I still love mine in a gun metal gray...but "other" is not an option on your poll.

If he can somehow re create the pure awesome of your daisies, he should do that.

I say definitely white!

My first choice would be to make them as un-ricer as possible and just leave them alone. Second choice would be matte black. Third choice would be the aforementioned gunmetal grey. Just my $.02
