Hello,
I bought my E in Aug 2009 and I started doing some stuff to make it my own. In regards to the wheels, I had a guy take my rims off and paint it Glossy Black...I left the middle Honda logo unpainted...I think they turned out pretty good...I'll post some pics...the pics are pretty bad b/c its dark outside....and the wheels are dirty b/c its been raining alot in NC...
ps. i wanna sleep in my E, but i think my breath'll make the new car smell fade :(

Looks great, keep the pictures coming;)

And don't worry about the new car smell fading, just try to keep all the windows closed:D

wow, a friend charged you more for labor than it cost for materials? some friend... for that price you could have almost got a set of black wheels and kept or sold your factory ones and ended up paying less than that. just saying:rolleyes:

Okay, I'll step out of my usual curmudgeonly stance and say:

WOW! Those really look sharp! I have never seen a rattle can paint job come anywhere near the shine that you have on your wheels. Well done.

That looks sweet! I Like the new '09 six spoke alloys. I wish I had some on my '08. I love black wheels. I hate chrome and bling... stealth is always cooler than flash!

Black wheels=smooove. I also can't afford to do it properly ..aka: buy aftermarket wheels, and that makes youtube vids and rattlecans very tempting but still.........I'm still waiting for my pair to swell. I have rattlecanned alot of the trim on my E. all very nice.;-)
