I think I liked the white better than the black on the wheels
^ x2, just my opinion though.
Sent from an old rotary telephone.
I like the black better
I certainly like the white much better too, but glad Nick did it and know at least 1 reason why he probably did it, and of course it's his truck so make it his own as he sees fit. It's nothing that can't easily be changed back to OEM and would never hurt the value or integrity of the truck so all is well.
I'm glad he did it, cuz I want to paint the wheels on my C20 too and had considered going black instead of white which is what they are now, just faded and chipped paint that needs redone. So now I know. I won't do black and will for sure stick to white.
Reason I had considered black is because that's what common today, is black wheels and maybe 1 of the reasons he chose black. Other reason I think he may have, and what I'd also have thought of, is the black would set off well with the tinted glass and compliment each other. It actually does look good IMO, it just doesn't say 80's truck to me. Obviously still one of my 2 favorite C20 trucks on any of the square forums. IMO that truck is DONE. I wouldn't change a thing about it.
Welp....I guess your opinion probably holds more weight in this instance. You win LOL Still a beauty of a truck, without a doubt! I drool every time I see pics of it
Thanks guys..my reasoning was that the white wheels just did not go with the truck. There's nothing else white on the entire truck, its all red black and chrome. Red would be too much, but black as you said fits with the dark tint, and also makes the original poverty caps stand out. Which I like. White just look like a base model option.. Looks like a fire truck lol. I've got a ton of compliments on the black wheels locally so that's nice.
You should do a reverse chrome scheme. Every thing that is black in that picture you chrome and every thing that is chrome you paint black
On the wheels only lol
They're never DONE!
Normally I'd agree, but not in this case. Tastefully done OEM restoration IMO. Not underdone, not overdone. Has a modernized updated OD 4L80-E transmission. There's only 1 more thing I think if I was absolutely itching to do something to it, it would be 5.3 LS Conversion. That's it. Leave the OEM look but have the updated powertrain and leave it at that. JMO. Personally, I'd leave it just like it is though.
Hey Nick, I've been wanting to ask and keep forgetting. Did you put the body side molding on or did the body shop do it when they painted it. It's new molding right? Do you know where they or you got it?
I put it on. From LMC. Great stuff, just buy the pen that seals the ends when you cut it. I'll dig up a pic
Cool !!! Thanks
