I would say, in order to accent tastefully, just do the wheels purple but leave the body itself black. It'll tie it together much better than a big vinyl. Just my $.02

The place I use is awesome. They do EVERYTHING for you. Literally all I need to do is get the tires taken off and then drop them off the my powdercoater. They strip them, repair any scratches or curb rash as best as possible and then powdercoat them.

Yeah really well priced I think. Just remember, you'll need some $ for re-mounting and balancing the tires and also certain colors require 50% up charge so just keep that in mind. :biggrinsmiley:
