Porsche Crest picture request

Hey, as a future project I am planning on working on my wheels. First I would like to get the lip on my BBSs to shine. I was also thinking about painting the center something...I was thinking black. I can't find any pictures of black 944 BBS's, let alone pictures of a silver 944 with them. I was just going to photoshop them onto my car but I haven't had any luck.

This is the best pic I have right now with the gold BBSs

Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish works great for getting a shine to the outer lip of the wheels

I'll 2nd that. Polishing the outer lip and leaving the center as a regular silver-alloy finish might look really good on you car also, although the black center would still probably be the very good looking imho.

When you decide what color to paint the centers I would send them out to get powdercoated. The powdercoated finish will withstand more abuse from rock chips and nasty brake dust.
