Temp. Control LEDs ordered...
 
...last night and in the mean time my stock wheels were lookin rough due to the clear coating wearing out so I repainted them and did the front calipers.

Thinkin bout leavin it like it is, looks like a red "M", dunno yet:

Hey, looking great! I love the little pop of color peeking out. Can't wait till the pics of the Temperature Control LED's come in, it's gonna look so sick.

Haven't had a lot of time to mess with lighting, but finished my wheels and calipers. Ain't a "professional" job, just something to clean up the wheels and make the calipers stand out. Pics ain't the greatest either but...

It may not be much to you, but it's those little details that really clean it up and make it look much newer to "regular people".
Also, I kinda like the red "M". "M" is for Mopar after all....

They turned out good, you can't really can't tell the difference unless you get down and look really close. The wheels are actually bright like the first photo. Makes it look a lot sharper and and newer lookin.

Dayum, props for doing that! I'd never have the guts to rub down and repaint a wheel (or anything that was visible). Came out great.

Oh, I like the caliper but........you are gonna need to paint the bracket some color - black or silver maybe? Can't just have a sexy looking center with a dull bracket, but I am OCD.... :lol:

I just roughed em up a lil, sprayed em with 3 coats of Silver Rustoleum High Performance Wheel (damn near a perfect color match) and Dupli-Color High Performance Wheel Coating. And I used the Dupli-Color Red Caliper Paint Kit. I ended up doing the whole thing red and ordered a Mopar Caliper Decal Set. I'm always looking for ways to do things a lil different and in the past I've used Dupli-Color Textured Metallic (Dark Grey) for my wiper arms and roof rack. Turned out pretty good.
