what would you think about a red pin stripe on the outside of the wheels?

or just leave them as they are
?

Looks great Nick, very Night Rider you've done a good job with the coupe mate, red lining the wheels may look good but it's all a matter of taste TBH, go with what you think you've not done too bad so far.

Looks great Nick, I would put a slight tint on the rear lights and do the bumper mod I posted a while back for the front bumper. The red pin striping on the wheels could work but you might need some more red on the car to make it look right. Photoshop it first so you get a better idea.

Looks great ... What did you use to paint the alloys and was it easy ? could be something worth adding to the DIY "step by step" guides

Nice work nick the wheels and calipers look fantastic! Hmm i think the problem with having a red lip is its needs something else to justify it! take a look at this thread for an idea of what it might look like ;)

Nice looking Coupe, Nick - not keen on the way the rear plate sits in the bumper recess, but overall looks good :thumbup

Out of curiosity, have you ever been 'queried' by the local authorities or MOT folk over those plates?

They are within regulation size, seen more than enough Supras and Skyline's with similar plates on...

To my knowledge unless your car is very old, or has a very specific reason for it, you're not allowed any other plates sizes than the standard oblong, or 11"x8" ... that's why I didn't get some more fitting plates for the front of mine. Of course I could be wrong, and as always there's a ridiculous amount of correct and incorrect information floating about on the net on the subject.

Bought mine very recently, paid £3500. 53 plate, part service history, 57k. Don't know if that helps any, but I was content with paying that price :)
