    After about a two week turn around, the wheels are finally BLACK! Now I just need a BSP bumper (working on that one now) and she'll be blacked out.

    What do ya'll think?

    And as a bonus.... I saw this FJ at my local dealer. Not a bad looking truck.

    Black rims on a black truck just look so mean. Ive been sitting on a stock truck for a few years now. After checking out the trucks on this board, I want to MOD everything. I think Im going to debadge and go with black rims to start. These look really nice. Good job.

    All said and done, I have about $215 +/- in each wheel (including new silver TRD wheels, prep and powder coating, and new FJ TRD centercaps.) I bought the black center caps because I couldn't get a good finish that I was happy with on the silver cap. I do still have 4 of the silver ones that I'll sell if anyone is interested :D. I ended up with five total but one became my paint "guinea pig".

    I considered the Earnhardt Toyota ones on ebay but just thought I would try it myself. Saved a little but took longer to get them done. Doesn't matter much to me though, I made a few friends and good contacts for future work if needed.
