    Looks good, but I thought they are a tad darker?

    Trying to decide if the argent green from NPD or a rustoleum dark pewter will look good on my 74 Z28 that is 2001 Viper yellow :confused:

    That could be maybe.
    If your car is still white, I think they will look great on there. That's why I am wondering if the dark pewter would look good on mine :confused:

    I think the dark color would look good on any car. You should try a can of the dark argent on yours and see if you like it.

    I'd worry more about the round holes for the filler valve . all early 70 - 74 Z28 rims had an oval filler hole so why sweat the color ? [​IMG]
