    Did you use Plasti-dip for your paint?

    That looks really good. Would like to know if you used plasti-dip or an actual paint and the process you went through to get that finish (how many coats of black and clear coat)

    Seems like you got a clean and glossy finish their, awesome job!

    What percent tint are you running in the front and rear?

    I like how dark your windows are and just curious, might go with the same percent tint you did.
    Your ILX is looking great! Anymore plans for "modifications"?

    Looks good! Did you do the painting yourself or sent it in somewhere to get it done? If you did it yourself then you could maybe do DIY write up on here somewhere. I wouldn.t mind learning how to paint my wheels too. I would paint it all black. And I would like to know the tint percentage on all the windows of your ILX too.

    Do you have a pic of just a wheel without all the photoshop? Looks good but hard to tell what it really looks like. I was considering doing something similiar

    to anyone asking how it was done, although I haven't done this myself, but seen how in videos online, it's quite easy depending on what you use. Plasti Dip is most forgiving since you can easily peel it off.

    Painting is more permanent and not something i'd advise
