    Default watanabes: colours

    Alright so I have acquired some Watanabes, which are charcoal/black in colour.

    Can I:
    a) powdercoat them silver (edit: on second thought the ones in the pic look more raw than silver?) after that look anyway
    b) get lip machined as in pic



    I know where I can get powdercoating done, but unsure about machining/polishing lip.

    Any help or advice appreciated

    Cheers, Ben.

    i agree, destroy the school.

    only 1 colour unless you got chrom bits on your car. but if you did youd be better off with other rims with chrome dish.


    colour depends on your car and what colour and style youre doing to it

    hmm i see you guys point..

    I'm thinking raw then? If I went raw how would you go about that? to achieve similar look to those in the pic

    have got 14x8 -12 mk3s for rear

    going for similar style to that wagon really. Car is beige, low as fuck, 14x8 -10ish rims, 185s, chrome t18 bumpers, quads, chrome fender mirrors.

    Cheers, Ben.

    i would go raw as well. when i had mine i looked into getting them stripped and blasted back to raw metal with just a clear coat or something. i really wanted to do it but never got around to it, i think itd look pretty cool and be different from most flat black watanabes. Either that or just go to a powdercoating place and look at their colour charts.
