My Rims

i was bored thought i'd share this lol!!

the last time I polished my rims was back in october of 07 for the car show. I wanted to show everyone what they look like before and after being polished.

Before Polishing
as stated this is what they looked like before i polished them




With Polish on it
Just to show you that i really was polishing them


After polish
I washed my car in the shade so you could see the difference

I've seen someone on css.net put "SS" on their calipers. It looked badass.

sweet! i was looking at the vette with the blue calipers and i was like i'm painting my blue i wonder if that would work. I haven't seen any rx8's that had that done. So it would definately be something different. I'm going for it!

Miguires xtreem shine is better. I use it on my tires. Its a little more expensive but it lasts longer and dosent sling off. Its an arosol can. I run mine throught the car wash and it still has shine on them. I also use it on my engine peices at car shows and it looks sweet as hell.
