Now that y'all have seen the wheels on, what color should I paint my calipers? I already have white lincoln decals so I won't be painting them white unless I go with a black and white paint scheme.

At the moment I am leaning towards either black or silver.

Thanks man, I really didnt know much about cars until last year when I finally got fed with the dealership charging me an arm and a leg to fix engine issues. But looking at this forum and other things online made me start thinking that I can do it by myself.

On another note, I just bought some wax specifically for white cars so I'm interested to see how that turns out.

lol ... wax is wax Ben, it goes on the clear coat, the wax could care less what color in underneath the clear coat.
now, paint scratch wax with dye in it, there's an idea. Fn schemes out there to separate people with their money.

BTW: someone here recommended that Collinite 845 wax, got my hands on two bottles of that stuff.

+1 that I like a lot, like one of those once a year waxes and water just beats on it, run right off without streaking.

I have an impulse buy problem basically. I have some good carnuba sitting in the garage I use, but bought this stuff just to see. It was only 10 bucks so why not.

Dayum! ... that's great Ben, thanks for sharing. Best vid ever!

Although, I'm supposed to avoid that kind of food, I gotta run into town today for some errands and I'm going to have to get a Dayum good burger today somewhere!

oh PS: I'm not obese/fat or anything, just supposed to eat healthier these days but "quality of life" warrants a good ol greasy burger in moderation.
