    Honest Opinions Please......

    been thinking of this little mod for a long while now, but now ive done it im not sure if i like it or not.
    as you can see from the pics, ive changed the colour of the roller wheels in my multi function wheel.
    i must admit the pics dont do them any favours at all as your not getting a good enough detailed view , the sun was out too and in the pics it makes them look very bright, i can assure you there not when there in front of you.

    so, as the title says, opinions please, RESTORE or ADORE ???????

    I think a less prominent silver, as its to much in yer face, from the photos anyway, in flesh it maybe completely different & as the rollers are patterned, so this may make all the difference up close.

    I would say restore, as they will get dirty and the paint will at some point rub off. I would look to get a machine shop make some in alloy to match the rest of the trim, and would look far better imo.

    You could also try something like this, states it may work on non-metallic items!

    ^^^ Slightly darker, maybe Gun Metal Grey, sounds like a good idea actually.

    C.V.Vacuum Platers Inc. You send them the part and they will metal plate it any color you want. I like it BTW but it needs to match the wheel. Just send them the air vent ring for a color match
