Yeah that's top on my to do list.

Thanks... but white isn't necessarily harder to clean i went throught the first cleaning the day i took these pics which was on monday and wipped off easy... but you just and to make sure you clean the whole rim! which makes it harder because you have to inspect the rims thoroughly.

Griffin wrote:WOW! That looks incredible with the red body! That was an awsome choice!

And yeah - you really need to get that FMIC in there asap

Thanks... it's funny my friend is said that white doesn't look good in with red... but i think it does... but hey that's what his opinion is.

and indeed will get the FMIC on soon.... though i've been saying that for oh about 2 years now. :shrug:

it ran me $7 for Dupli-color wheel paint. and 4-5hrs of labor from start to finish. maybe when i paint them again i'll do a write up.

Painting wheels is way easy. I dont understand why more all-trac people arnt doing it. Maybe its because our stock wheels are butt ass ugly and not even paint can save them.

well the stock flowers aren't that bad... i think if you gunmetal them i think i'll look much better than how they are stock.
