Nice... My v710's are all trashed after a year (of daily driving), is there any way to match the factory paint? Or should I just have them all completely refinished? My receipt says they are HS (hyper silver)... Thanks!

We do sell paint pens in our Hyper Silver finish if the blemishes are minor.

what is your opinion on plastidip? like i've said earlier i scraped my wheels and i dont have the cash at the moment to get them fixed, so i'm thinking about plastidipping them for a while until i can get them repainted. i'm still doubting a bit though also because i cannot pick a color haha

I have seen it done both well and poorly. Of course the results varied but I must say when it was done poorly it really does not look good. Make sure it is done properly and you may enjoy the results.

Thanks. I like the way it came out. I still need to get an alignment, and I'm still playing with ride height. I think if I reduce the toe to 1 degree, I won't rub on the rear bumper. I rub on the inside molding. I may cut the plastic molding out, if I have to. Only happens on the passenger rear. Hopefully all will be good after the alignment and removal of the plastic molding.

This will be exactly what I'll be looking for when I grow tired of my stretch-n-poke setup. It's so well executed like others have said..

Thanks in advanced fam!
