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

I doubt it was plastidip. Masking tape and plastidip dont work well. The plastidip wont cut itself along the tape like paint would. When you take the tape off it'll stick to the plastidip and peal it off the whole wheel unless you run a razor along the side of the tape but that would wouldn't be a great idea. Im assuming it is paint because most people dont say they painted their wheels when they used plastidip.

Both of those are with my Galaxy Note 2 smartphone/tablet.
The pictures on my page done with a camera are with a Coolpix.

By no means good camera. Just proper lighting.
seems like you have some sort of photography background, i do too somewhat, it's amazing what the right setting can do. I find that it's more so the person taking the picture than the camera they use that in the end produces a great picture
