I'm sure the sunken treasure do look good in the metal, but just too dark for my theme

That's nice, looks like rose gold, but I'd be damned if I'd drive around on those, there's enough copper being robbed from churches and railways, I don't need to encourage it!

lol, it would still look awesome though and you would be fine with some hefty wheels locks.

Hmm, Personally I would do with a white or silver on Fern Green, or even a gold finish. But preferably white such as Gloss Pearlescent White displayed on the previous page.


Midnight Blue VB3s

We think alike. I will probably do bronze or white. Maybe matte

A Matte Bronze or White would definitely look good on Fern Green. A little militaristic. And great minds think alike.
If you ever need a quote on a set up just shoot me a PM.

Falling from the skies, I'd like to present Solar Rain. Worn in a 18x9.5 square fitment on a MKV GTI!

Sunken treasure is speaking to me.

How do people feel about it on a red car?

A proper finish needs a fitting name.

I personally have not seen it but I feel that it would look good. I actual just put in an order for some Sunken Treasure V718s for a Tornado Red VW Golf customer. Once I get some pictures I'll make sure to post them.

I don't have any pictures of the bronze burst powder coat on a car but here is a picture of Sungold on a Black GTI. Looks pretty good to me.
