Default Alto with black rims

hi guys,
i recently got my rims painted as the stock pain on them was scratched badly on all four of them . so i decided to paint them MATT black to get a wicked look.
here are some pics i'd like to share.
i already have a computer installed in my alto and i named it as Altputer.. lol.. and that you might wanna check it here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/diy-do...ing-stage.html

my next plan for hte mod is to get a PIPERCROSS air filter induction kit known as VENOM. already ordered that and it shall be here with me next week and will get it installed ASAP and post pics here.

and by the way "GT" is my company logo which i really like.

NIce. you need to get your B-pillars stickered MAtte Black too. How much did this cost you.

I was quoted 1000/- for all for tires earlier. THEN..got to know a fellow BHPian who got his car coated MATTE BLACK for only 2000/-. Now we all are thinking of going matte black.

Why not just take a can of BOSNY MATT BLACK paint from a paint shop and paint it yourself. Or i will do it for you for 800/900 bucks for all rims..

the color i chose was from Renault's color book. i really liked it being MATT. these costed me aroun Rs.2500 all four rims. it seems to be little costly as there was lot of work to be done on the rims while we had to pull out the original color all the way down.
and "B" pillar?? ive no idea what is it :(
