This is the gold my wheels were when I first got them. The gold quickly faded into an ugly silver-ish color, so I chose to repaint them as opposed to buying new wheels. Although it was a great idea, it certainly came with some headaches. I'm definitely a creature of habit. For the most part, I don't like when things change. Not a great characterisitic for a car enthusiast, I know. :) Coming up with the perfect color took months; I wanted to do a bright color, but nothing too bright because I feared that whole 'ricer' stereotype. After numerous trips to the auto paint store I finally decided on my color. A Volkswagon metallic teal blue. My inspiration came from a '63 Beetle I saw in an edition of VDub Magazine. The paint tech did tweak the color quite a bit to get the brightness I needed to be able to stand out. Overall, one of my favorite mods to the Lancer. :)Like I said earlier, I'm a creature of habit and change scares me most of the time. And for that reason I have to thank Nate, Munchie, Chris, & my Chris for all their patience. Hands down, without a doubt, painting my wheels was the best decision I have made for Eva yet. From the moment I saw the paint in the can to the moment I saw my finished wheels, I just felt this sense of relief that I hadn't felt all those months I was trying to find the perfect color. I had found it! And I love it!
