    Hmm, this could be interesting.

    First thoughts would be stick with the silver but gold could be rather nice.

    Cant wait to see the p'shop.

    i dont think so, TECNOMAGNIESIO did the prototypes on the car called the BRAVO. the last 20 or so Jalpas and all of the Silhouette's came with the 5 hole wheels with the raised lips. Countach wheels i think will fit a jalpa, but the pirelli's in those sizes are hard to get and expensive. Compomotive wont (cant? ) make my wheels in 16 inch, which is what i wanted. i am afraid the 17 inch wheels they can make for me will make the car sit too low.

    i would really like to see the face with the soft gold color prior to making up my mind. its nasty and rainy here, so i cant drive the car. i will snap some pics of it in the garage as i want to remove the sport seats and put the originals back in. going to chaange all of the fluids too, as soon as i figure out where to get the oil filters from locally.

    HOMERUN! yes, thats what i wanted to see, but be aware its a gold colored finish, not "real gold" as in bling. but , as someone has already said, i think the all chrome look is best !!

    thank you so much for showing me this, i really appriciate it! MICHAEL :)

    Want me to darken/bronze out the gold a little?

    BTW - I agree about all chrome, just figured it'd help to see it in gold to make up your mind.

    i really appricate bieng able to see what they looked like before i had them made! i think the gold color will not age well and it will be hard to sell the car with that finish later on. traditional chrome it is !! now i need to find 17 inch tires....... whole package should be around $3k.

    maybe i can sell my stock wheels and tires since the pirelli's are so new....... :)
