Re: who thinks I should powdercoat my wheels (volvos70turbo)

I think you need to put those Volks on your car, so save the money on the powder coating and get those wheels already. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Wheels was here and gone, but will be back in one week. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Something like this:<p>Grey<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_01.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Black<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_02.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Or the 1980s look with gold<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_03.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Or a more hip 1990s gold with a little bling added<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_04.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Didn't Pontiac have a Firebird with blue mesh wheels?<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_06.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>If you sell Mary Kay or Avon products, this color may come in handy<br><IMG SRC="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims_05.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>ok, I'm done having fun. here's the <A HREF="http://www.icstew.com/volvo_misc/s70_rims.psd" TARGET="_blank">.psd file</A> if you want to mess with colors. 1.6mb, not sure why its so big, there is an alpha channel for the rims, just load the "wheels" selection channel and adjust away.<p>

I'll post some pics of the VST spoiler when it comes in.<br>(DAMN port delays<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">) The price tag on this item is pretty hefty,<br>$350. You should get one for your R, it would look very nice.<br>Congrats on the new wheels by the way, I think they are the best <br>looking Volvo rims out there.

I wish I could afford your wheels (plus tires)<br>F the HRE bling and keep them. Did they fix the order<br>yet?

I voted for "leave it alone man", your car looks sweet as is. Invest that money on something else like that spoiler you mentioned or some cool electronics... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>-Drew

Is there a website were I can get a look at this VST stuff? I have heard about it, but can't find pics anywhere. Thanks in advance and sorry for the off-topic post.<p>And oh yeah. Leave the wheels alone. The car looks great the way it is.<BR><BR>

Re: who thinks I should powdercoat my wheels (larryo108)

me too i voted leave it alone--although with black or gray you probably don't have to worry about cleaning them...

I voted for leaving it alone. However, the grey with the polished lip looks very cool!
