    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.

    I think they look good, I'd never thought of changing them before, but they do look good.

    ^^^ 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

    I like it but like tcardio said, if your gonna do it, do it properly.

    On a completely separate note, where did you get the chrome nobs from for your RNS-E ????

    Hi 1wheelonly
