    What are you guys going for??

    I have done the surround Matt Satin Black today, but im not sure whether to do the rings or not, part of me is saying it will look too dark on the front anf to keep the chrome rings to break it up a bit, but part says keep to go for the full dark stealth look.

    Car is silver by the way.

    Cheers

    Im planning on doing my surround over Bank Hol. if i get chance , after looking at loads of pic's in the sticky i think doing the rings kicks the ass out of it, Although it can look OK, i just like it broken up for a bit more definition :kissmyrings:

    Cheers, I think ive already got my mind setup to be honest, but just wanted to see what others were doing and how it looked on theirs.

    Should have it back on later today if I get a chance to get to the car :)

    Leave them Chrome mate, looks too dark with them done black IMO.

    The surround looks bob on black but the rings is a step too far I think.

    Finally get to show off my black grill :D
    Did it about 5 weeks ago now
    I think black rings look awesome but that might be because my car is black ?

    Looks alright buddie but I'd have left the rings silver. I think it looks better on dark cars than silver though.

    Ive gone for just the surround, left the rings chromed.

    I will get some pics up over the weekend as the car is garaged up at the mo and too dark for pics.

    It did look good though, if I may say so myself :)

    As Tom says, think it will look good on the Silver, however Dan yours look really good all in black, but thats probably as your car is black.
