Black Out

I'm starting to seriously look into bedlining all the plastics on my truck, and in looking at it I'm thinking I may have to get the wheels painted to keep it looking right too. Basically I'm looking for opinions right now.

The wheels I'm running on my truck right now are American Outlaw Shotguns. And my biggest gripe about them is turning into the chrome ring on them. Here's a picture for you guys:



I decided to play with the colors a little bit today and was experimenting with how they would look entirely black. The problem with all black is that there's a lot of nice detail on the wheel that would get covered up. I tried a couple different ideas and wanted to find out what people might think of black with red lettering.




For a better idea of what it would look like on the truck I shopped that up real quick too.

Here's the truck pretty much as it stands:



And the same shot with shopped bedliner and painted wheels:



I have a bug deflector on the truck now and I think that will also help a lot with the blacked out looks.

So what do you guys think? Does it need some more refining, or would it look cool that way?

Thanks!

looks good with the black, but if you're not sure, try painting the wheels with plastidip. it peels off in one piece if you decide you're done with it.

Getting 19MPG right now. I'm proud of that, but want to get more out of it. I'm considering an HHO setup.

Thanks for the feedback guys I might give the plastidip a try and see how it looks close up and real. I'll be sure and take some more pics when I do that.

yeah plastidip is pretty slick. you might be able to put a coat of plastidip and a coat of bedliner on top of that. that way you get the full effect, but it's temporary. i haven't ever tried that though, so i'm not sure.

i do like the idea of the bedliner...my grey plastics are all faded and oxidized from the sun. i'm looking into doing the same thing.

I'm thinking I might find a good paint and body shop in town to touch up some of the scratches on my X... My roof is all scratched up from hauling bikes up there, people's pedals just scraped a bunch of paint off. I want to get that taken care of before we get anymore rainy weather to keep it from rusting at all.

I'd like to set it up that I can take it to the paint shop and tear off all the plastic so I can bedline it while giving the shop easier access to everything else. Hopefully they'd charge me less if I do it that way

I'm also thinking I want the pin stripe removed. I don't like the swervy brush strokes very much. I'd be happy with a thick charcoal line going straight across the truck under the windows... I might have to photoshop that...
