You still shoot from an HPLV gun, but it's way easier to run that auto paint/clear. You do not have to positive pressure paint booth.

The stock ZHP wheels look a million times better, classier, sportier, purer, and more expensive than those SL5s (just Googled them) keep the stock on your car if you can.

By talking the way you are (calling names), aren't you the one being impolite?? I simply stated my opinion.

I never said his wheels look bad. I just said the ZHP wheels look better. Is that OK with you? Further, at the time of my post, the pic of his car was not visible as I was at work and it was firewalled.

Personally, I like the powder coated aluminum look. Beyond that, spinners rock! Love the look of dub dub spinners on an '88 Cutlass! If I ever get caught up on maintenance, that will be my first mod.
