Well I finally did it!! I got my car painted, well at least it's getting painted. I have been wanting to do a flat black paint job on my S60 for a while and decided to go ahead and do it. I have a few pics so far, although they aren't the best, it's all I have at the moment. I'm not in the country right now so I'm pretty much getting the pics that the shop (Exalt) is sending to me. Hopefully I'll get some more in the near future. Hopefully though in the next month I'll have the car completely painted with newer 05+ trim pieces, custom front mount IC, and white Iforged Seneka's with black wheel bolts. I'm hoping that the outcome will be everything that I hoped it would otherwise it's back to the drawing board. Hope you like the pics.<p><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/GetAttachmentaspx-3.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/GetAttachmentaspx-2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/GetAttachmentaspx-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/GetAttachmentaspx.jpg" BORDER="0">

Looks to be going well. Definitely keep us posted. Did they finish the wheels yet or are they holding off on that?<br>EDIT: they are going to look SICK. I really liked the looks of the wheels but with a powder coat they will be at a whole other level. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Impulse922)

Yeah that 850 is only 45 minutes from my hometown in Gainesville, Fl. I tried to get my 66 year old father to go and check it out since he's considering buying an 850R but he's not really that excited about flat black paint jobs. I would really like to have that car though. Anyways, here are some pics of the Iforged wheels that I go off of AJ (carreragt7), they are getting powder coated white with black wheel bolts. I'm not sure if I'll like them but if I don't I'll have them redone when I get some more cash.<br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/034-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/n775614441_1416811_8901.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/n775614441_1416822_1582.jpg" BORDER="0">

Looks terrible, but that is mainly caused by the owners lack of style when it comes to rims, ride height etc. Hopefully yours will look better if you get the rest of the car right:)

Why don't you spray 2 wheels with rattle can white so you can see what it looks like before you pay for powder. Once you powder coat them white, I'm not sure what the process will be to remove the white powder coat to change colors.

Re: (SHIFT_S60R)

Well I'm not rolling on 20's and mine is lowered so hopefully 19's will fill the wheel well nicely. Those wheels are definitely not my style though. As for spray painting them white before PC'ing them, I wish I could but I'm not in the country right now, but the guys that are doing the PC will work with me if I want to have them redone. They did show me a burnt orange color that I was considering but it might look a little too wild for me. If not white, maybe black like the rest of the car. We'll just have to see when it's all done. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (StephenM)

I am not feeling the white wheels, but the car looks nice so far. Glossy black, graphite/titanium will look nice.

Re: (GiRaff3)

Okay here's a pic of the wheels finished in white!! I think the wheels with the black wheel bolts are going to look really good. I was skeptical at first but now I'm stoked about how it's going to look. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some more pics of the wheels next to the car but this is all I have for now.<br><IMG SRC="http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg175/chillidawg40/GetAttachmentaspx-4.jpg" BORDER="0">
