Looks good, I might have to try that with my set of steelies. The powder coating facility at my work is almost up and running.

from what info I've gathered, the key to not having them peel/crack is to do a complete media blasting to remove all factory paint & a good rinse/wipe down to remove any remaining residue. then pay close attention to the bake temperatures & time's.

brake dust residue should just wash off.

Damn! That's a lot of TV in the back of the box. I'm actually surprised it fit. :)

The wheels look good, and are probably a more practical wheel than any of the rest of us have.

(Glad I finally got to meet you the other day!)

I'm not impressed by that TV pic until it's custom mounted into your car and has a video game system hooked up to it..... lol
