Thats my favorite part too actually lol when i finally learned how to take em apart it really made a difference. I used to have the wheel center red but i peeled it.

Gothca. In case you want to in the futre, i believe it's 2 or three screws on the bottom that you get too by removing the foot well panel and 1 nut on each side that i took the vents out to be able to reach.

I just got around to dipping my center vent covers and the vent on the driver's side today, after having already done the right vent, airbag cover and the defrost vents on the sides awhile back. Those bolts on the back of the vents were kind of a PITA. I agree those dipped vent fins look sick :thumbsup: Mine wouldn't have quite the same effect since my scheme is black and grey though... looks good though man! Oh, and I dipped my airbag cover in-car, just masked off well. There's enough of a gap to where the dip won't peel off inadvertantly FYI

Looks great!...interiors are so drab these days that it's nice to see colors besides gray,black and tan. Auto makers....are you listening?

2 stage spray paint called Metalcast made by Duplicolor. Got some to do the calipers, just haven't got around to doing that. It's the wifes' favorite color( I like to)and she gets it for a steal from work.

I did a show and tell sort of speak on the OS. It's called, "Bored today so I did"
