Photoshop/Lindsey's

Anyone good/quick with photoshop? I've sent in my $ to Mike Lindsey and he's beginning to make my 9/11 x 17" wheels...but I've got a dilemma. I was originally thinking RSR finish but now that I've seen Miguel Antonette's beautiful moca brown 930 w/black center & polished outer Lindseys I'm stuck between the two. I was wondering if anyone out there who is good with photoshop might be able to help me decide? Here's a side shot of my car- I was hoping to see the wheels in RSR style finish and black center/polished outer. I've got about a week to make a decision. I have no concept of how hard it is to do this- or how long this would take...so if I don't get any takers on this post I totally understand. Thanks, in advance for your help!

Congrats, you will not be dissapointed.

I believe the RSR finish would match your car better, with the "reduced" (NOT all the way to the barrel) black centers. Mike will know exactly what you mean.

RSR finish is for RSR's IMO- or at least NA wide bodies. Go with standard polished finish and then hit them with Scotch Brite pads if you want a duller finish.

Christian,

Are the fronts rubbing? They look to be "proud" of the fender.

Cheers

Jeff,

No they don't rub...but they are very 'flush' with the fenders...I think I'm going to send the fronts back to TDW to redo them by about a 1/2" more offset...right now, I can't lower the car if I wanted to....Jim at TDW was very cooperative and said he would do whatever it takes at his cost to get them right...even if it means he has to start over from square one!....so no worries here...other than that, I'm extremely pleased with the final product and highly recommend Jim at TDW!

Thanks Miguel- I'll talk with him about that. Thanks also to JimCulp- I've been thinking along those same lines. I haven't ever seen a non RSR clone or hot rodw/RSR wheels. They seem to look correct without the center caps- and I think putting RSR wheels without center caps on a nice, shiny 930 might look like I cobbled the car together with the parts I could find (albeit very expensive parts!). I'm leaning toward the black centers now (thanks Christian for the pics)- but will check out Miguel's black center/RSR hoop idea.


Before:



w/black centers:



w/RSR finish:



Here's an embarrassingly poor representation (you'll quickly see why I was hoping someone with photoshop "skills" might chime in!) The RSR wheels have a bluish hue for some reason- at first glance the black centers grab me the most. Feel free to chime in.
