Installed my new wheels, blacked out my grill and debadged the rear. Still trying to decide if I should black out the rear chrome, paint it body color or just leave it alone. Next up a tune, some level 3 lights, a few more minor cosmetic mods and project Bluesport will be complete.

I just cleaned it really well, wiped it down with rubbing alcohol, hit it with 2 coats of adhesion promotor and 3 coats of Krylon Gloss Black plastic spray paint. It's not perfect but unless you get 2 inches away its close to flawless. I wish it was more glossy so I might take it back off and give it a few coats of clear coat. So far its held up through a high pressure wash and a rain. storm.

I have a biased "yes" vote on the black out, as I blacked out all my chrome (except rear badging). Wheels are nice. They look similar to some I have seen on Honda Accords.
Looking good!
On the other hand, if you are going to have Chrome on the wheels, then it may be a good idea to keep some chrome trim.

Thanks! I planned to keep the chrome around the windows, I think it matches the wheels pretty well. Just wasn’t sure about the rear trim. I think I’m going to wrap it with some left over vinyl I have here and if it looks good I’ll paint it.

Third on the rear chrome! Wheels look amazing! I'm super picky with wheels and you got some sharp looking ones!
Thanks! I must have looked at 1000 wheels before deciding
