Very nice!

And I agree about the JCW wheels...IMO they are just plain awesome.

Beautiful car. I love the plasti-dipped chrome parts. I want to try this. Any tips?... or videos that would help? I want to plasti-dip the a-panels black on my silver MCS as well.

I don't know why anyone would replace the stock JCW wheels. Those things are nice.

Tips? Sure, don't spray anything while it's still on the car. Remove all pieces and spray them, it's just easier. And cleaner. After I sprayed them with black plasti-dip I sprayed all the trim with the Glossifier. The plasti-dip lasted me maybe a year. Be careful taking off trim, some of the clips break easily, the plastic is pretty brittle.
The plasti-dip has been replaced by glossy black 3M vinyl. It's not the easiest thing to do, but if you can tint windows that kinda translates to vinyl. I watched a bunch of 3M vinyl videos on YouTube. They teach you how to use the heat gun properly.
I will be switching out all of the vinyl wrapped chrome this year at the dragon with the black OE trim pieces.
