Default yes or no

please look past my lack of PAINT skillz.

I've already done the center caps to match (electric blue pearl) Now I'm thinking of doing either a rim stripe or fill in the faux rivets body color.
Opinions wanted. <flame suit on>

Yes to filling in rivets.

No to a stripe; IMO it will kill your car's look.

I'm not a fan of chrome but those wheels on your PT look sharp

No and no. Rimm stripes are so 2011 And I don 't like rivets on a wheel as it is, let alone when they're painted

Kevin, First I can't believe that no one has mentioned the rear suicide doors and the rear hatch mid-wing!

I personally think going the other direction and adding blue dots on the tips of the lugnuts would finish it off nicely. I can make the dots from electric blue vinyl. Just give me the exact size of the tip of the lug nut. This way the wheel accent that you are after is contained in the center of the wheel for better effect. I don't think anyone would even notice the outter rivets if you do it this way.

If you give me the diameter of the already painted center caps, I could do a custom one-off script or 3D emblem of some type for them, like I did the roadrunner center caps for Dewey. A Stage 1 or DSP or E1 emblem for instance would look good, imho.

If you end up going with the rivet covers I can make those just as easily if you give me the exact size you will need.

Please click link below.

I like the idea of painting the indentation where the rivets are and leave the rivets chrome. With a chrome lettered label in the center cap.

Nice Ride! I'd do the rivets and the ends of the lugs, but I'd pass on the stripe.

They're polished (uncoated) aluminum. Yes, they're a pita to keep up
