    So I've never really been a fan of the chrome. After painting the nosecone, my next objective was to cover up the chrome. Decided to go with carbon fiber wrap. I left the rear defuser as the only chrome left on the car. Now I think I need to powder coat the wheels.

    From a distance I think it blends well. Close up, it makes my eyes go a bit wonky... not for me (I do like the way the chrome looks on the MS) but looks like good craftsmanship!

    Think if you had grey rims, it would pop more. Think silver rims with silver around windows gives good overall appearance. I am impressed by the job though.

    Wormhole, what brand wrap did you use?

    I think the entire nose cone in CF would look good, as well as a CF rear diffuser. Personally, I like the chrome around the windows and the handles, as well as the "T". I also think your setup would look a lot better with gray wheels, but those are $4500 now:scared:.Maybe consider powder coating.

    Wrap brand is Vivid. Already looking into powder coating wheels. I like the lower nose cone painted look :)

    Love your plate! And that wrap looks like it took a lot of time. Good attention to detail but I agree that the powder coating would finish it off nicely.

    Wow that looks very cool, and very unique. Goes very well with the green nosecone. Does it reduce your radar signature? ;)
