All Black Everything

Well finally the pieces are starting to come together for the FRS once again and I got up off my lazy ass to start getting some things done. The first thing was to get the TE’s dismounted and sent off for a colour change. I’m not going to say that I was necessarily tired of the red, because I still thought it looked great. I just wanted to change it up a bit. I’ve said before that the #1 combination of colours that I hate shooting is a black car with black wheels, yet here I am doing exactly that.

I’ve envisioned this look for about a year now and I’ve finally come to decide that I think it’s going to be a nice, fresh start. I’m not sure what the current trends are lately – they seem to be bouncing back and forth between super vibrant colours or a chrome wheel. I’ve decided to go back to the basics with the TE37’s with the OG gloss black. Not necessarily the Diamond Black that Volk has come out with – that is more of a very dark charcoal colour. To put the cherry on top, I also decided on finishing them with the OG TE37 decals as well as opposed to the SL spoke sticker.

Anyway, there’s a few more pieces I need to complete this look and I think the last piece is something you guys are going to love. The combo is just going to be too rad and I haven’t seen it done yet. Going back to the basics and hoping to really bring a different, yet simple look this year. Enjoy!

Right out of the packaging.

Beautiful. It’s a bit naked without the spoke stickers, but it’s definitely refreshing to see a nice new finish.

Got my cleaning supplies/degreaser to prep for stickers.

Replacement VOLK/RAYS stickers…

Simple application… PS remember that they go on a specific spoke and in a certain order. Locate the valve stem hole, then go up to make a T. The two spokes to the left and right of the center cap is where the stickers go.

In all their glory. It’s amazing what a set of stickers do to make these look amazing.

That concave. Love it.

For now… They’ll just rest in Diana’s library LOL.
