so I have an extra set of 18" "project" pegs and I'm thinking of doing the orange trimmed pegs to compliment my atacama interior....which do you prefer
"Orange"

"Light Edge"
"Dark Edge"
Orange on the car


PS...I hope aftermath686 doesn't mind that I photoshopped some of his very nice photos....

Re: Which pegs do you prefer??? (mehran05)

I'd say light edge.. but with anything like that it's hard to get it perfect and usually doesn't come out how you'd want it. How about low gloss black the whole peg?

Don't do the orange. It's only going to look decent when the car is parked and setup for a beauty photo with the doors open and what not. The rest of the time you're going to be the clown driving around town in the gray Volvo with orange wheels. http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif

i prefer a solid gunmetal or anthracite finish all around, but if you have those orange Brembo's, the orange accents may not look bad. Keep in mind, any painted wheel looks much worse when it gets dirty, IMHO.

I really like the orange calipers, but I think I prefer the original Peg. The caliper is just enough color, the colored wheel would just be too much. IMO

+1!!
Did you do repaint the calipers yourself or are those swapped from a G series infiniti/nissan Z ?

You know I've been looking at the 1st picture for a while and if done correctly it may not look that bad.

I would make sure the "orange" part is semi-gloss at best, not gloss.
It could look interesting
