/| BartenderPlease |\ Matte Blackage and Dropage

What you think guys, I kinda like this look and it would flow with the smoked corners and matte black grille, but wish I could see it in person (but then I couldn't reverse it). I really like the way the 17" D-Force LTW-5 look in Anthracite and tried to get that look out of the m68's. What do you guys think? And if somebody can do a better chop (which I think so) would you mind doing it for me? Originals below the chops. TIA!










Originals



This pic is too big, so here is the link.

The drop looks good but I can't say that the wheels new color look too great.

leave the stockies alone and save up for some wheels that you can order that way...it won't look good at all.

flat black=no
now it would look good if you matched the anthracite coating of the d-forces, but with spending $$$$ on all that why not spend just a little more n get some real 18-19s

you need chrome or hyper lips. Your car color won't let you get a nice match with tha matte
