View Full Version : I LOVE GOOOOOLLLLLLLLDDDDDD! (wheel teaser)

03-01-2014, 10:51 PM
Got a few mods installed, and I'm loving every one of them so far; but this next one is sure to change the entire look of the car! Nero Puro and Gold wheels!?!?! I know, it sounds crazy, but I think it might just work! Also, a BIG thumbs up to the guys over at Madness for their impeccable service. Ordering the wheels from them was a great experience all around and they actually arrived earlier than I expected them to!

I couldn't help myself! They will be on the car tomorrow and better quality pictures will follow!

Mods to date include: An RRM Ultimate ECU, RRM Intake, RRM Heat Shield, RRM Brace Bar, RRM Big Red Rear Bar, NueF Race Exhaust and Mid-pipe, Tint (limo rear, 35% on the front). I am currently in the process of color matching all of my reflectors and will then move on to the mustache and rear hatch piece. Turbo tails, DRL's, Headlights will soon follow after that! Cheers!

Bet they will look sweet! Maybe some gold Abarth on the side instead of red or black. What color is your car?

Thanks! I am thinking of having some gold with red outlined Tributo Ferrari Stripes made up to tie it all together. The car is Nero Puro (straight black, no flake).

That is really sharp looking. You should do something like that if possible.

I've seen the same wheels on a Rosso. The guy also got them from Madness. Here's a prelude.

TD are great wheels. I wish they still had some of their older models around. Love them on a previous car.

03-05-2014, 12:05 AM
Here is a teaser photo I was messing around with in PS! The wheels look great on the car, and I am extremely happy with them overall. Non Photoshopped pictures will be up tomorrow, but let me know what you guys think!

Also, I hope this isn't against the forum rules, but I made a for sale ad for my stockers in the classifieds.

Here's the link:

Love the gold! It's especially nice without being chrome shiny, it has a glow to it.

The yellow of the gold wheels and the red brake calipers make the Abarth side logo stand out too.

Here are a few more shots! Love the look and I will more than likely be adding some Tributo stripes in matching gold with red around the outside.
Thanks for the compliments!

GOLD! The color flows very nicely! Any suspension plans?

03-08-2014, 02:27 PM
Color Matched my reflectors yesterday, need to put them on the car tomorrow, but it should look great!

Suspension will soon follow, a coilover system of some sort...

Are they completely painted over? So the side marker lamps will not show? Or are they smoked, like here: http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showthread.php?13325-Smoked-Side-Marker-Lights

They are completely painted over, but still show. Here they are installed! Looks great, really cleans up the look of the car! Let me know what you think! This was done with 3 coats of primer after sanding with 800 grit, 6 LIGHT coats of PX8 Chrysler black, and like a crap ton of light clear coats (12 coats). Let everything dry 48 hours, wet sanded the clear with 2000 grit, buffed and polished with rubbing compound/wax.

I'm glad the lights still show through.

I have had a black car before, and was rear ended twice, side-swiped once, so be careful out there at night. After those experiences, I want my car to be seen all the time.

If you decide you want more reflectivity back, but not necessary in the same places, check out this thread:

I posted a link over to just pin striping too. You won't see it by day, but at night, it lights up when other lights hit it, just like the image posted by luka.

03-09-2014, 12:22 AM
^^^^ Ok that is just cool! Definitely will have to give some thought to that stuff! Looks like it would kind of match my wheels when reflecting the light lol.

Here's a post with a link to some pics of green with gold, check out the stripe they have on the Alfa:

That could be a nice look too.

your car looks great. I have a rossa and might to do the gold too. What are the specs of the wheels and what tires are you running? Thanks!

03-10-2014, 01:22 PM
Thanks for the comments guys. The wheels are same size as the stock 17s. 4x98 17x7. I'll post some more pictures once I get the rest of the chrome stuff painted.

Just a random thought:

As I come back to this thread and read the title. I can't help but be reminded of Austin Powers Haha.

"SPORT GT", cheesy:spaz:

Now I like the gold/black combo for sure, no doubt about it but the made up name and font being too large makes it look "cheesy".
