    Anyone any good with Photoshop please?

    Would someone be so kind and photoshop these wheels to Matt/satin black for me...might get them powder coated!



    And could you also do the wing mirrors black on this one...

    Use Plasti-dip on your mirrors & peel it off if you don't like it.

    Thats kind of the plan, but no point doing it if it isn't going to look right!

    Not sure about your logic there?
    You can try it in matt with no draw backs bar losing the cost of say 2 cans?
    Or get them powder coated at 40 quid per wheel then regret it and be stuck with it?

    Agree with this to a certain extent. In all honesty, black wing mirrors will work, there must be a pic of an imola S3 with black mirrors somewhere, and there sure is a imola with black wheels somewhere!

    If it were black vs white then photoshop will do. But satin vs matt. Wont work. Lighting angles in real life will make huge differences.

    Also depends on the material you are spraying to be powder coated.

    E.g I had my 17" Avus S3 wheels refurbished in white- however because the centre caps are plastic as opposed to the metal alloy, the finish between the two is very slightly different.

    ooooo money bags! lol

    didn't really think i was asking for miracles here, photoshopping the wheels all black and then photoshopping the chrome mirrors black.

    googled as jojo suggested does throw up some good images. Haven't found one yet with black mirrors.

    My point is mate that with photo shop it wont give you a fair idea of what the end result will look like. You get no idea of how light will effect the colours or any real depth of colour.
    Wasnt being rude btw was only teasing ya!

    None taken

    Just been scrolling through images of imolas on google and i have found only one with black wing mirrors and i actually think it might be a bit too much, so i think i'll just change the wheels for all black, rstt 9 spoke alloys being choice number one.

    Really undecided on the wheels ive got tbh. I've googled them and actually look really nice when all silver, not polished, just silver, so i'm swaying towards changing them, but they may look really good all black, thinking satin too, or perhaps a swap with someone who has black rstt 9 spokes. And to just add, the 17" avus in black i think would look pretty good too!
    hmmm

    Wow! Thanks fella! Black wheels do look great with the Imola! Could you do the front shot but with the rings still chrome, and the side shot with mirrors still chrome?

    Happy days!

    Personally I wouldnt go all black on the wheels, they just seem to be lost amongst the brightness of the Imola.
