Excuse my mediocre lightroom abilities; I don't have photoshop on my laptop.

I think with the matte finish you have on the body now gloss black rims would be perfect. With gloss I don't think you'd lose the deep dish look as it would contrast the matte finish and really stand out nicely.

I especially like it with the black splitter you have on the front.

Nice work, this was where I was thinking of going with it. Much appreciated.

We doing the Datsun thing? I'm going old school on ya. Sitting for years and its a 260 but it is basically a IMSA GTU car for the street



Here is the latest addition after restoration at Monterey this year... I think it too would look better with black wheels.

Maybe matting down the lip might be a good option.

I just think a high gloss black with the black anodized centers would fit the car niely.


Now post more 240/260/280 pics damn it!!

Darius' 240Z looked way better before the HREs went all black. He should have powder coated the centers and left the lips polished.

Yasin "also a Datsun guy"
