HI there,
I am about two weeks from taking delivery of a GT RS Daytona Gray (body/ grill matched color) and still not satisfied with the color rendition of the wheels (see attached)
Questions:
1- Are the gray flat detachable?
2- Anyone have power coat (black) just those flats, to keep the other part of the design of the spikes?
Any other ideas short of ordering a whole separate set of rims?
Thanks!

The silver triangular pieces are plastic and can be detached, but you won't like the look of it afterwards. I had the same issue and had them wrapped in CF instead. There's another thread in this forum covering all of that, will see if I can find it. The problem is the pinstriping. It is underneath the clear coating of the wheel so not easy to remove without re-doing the entire wheel.

Yes, that's the one. I also used the same CF wrap on the spoiler. This wrap was a matte CF, was toying with the glossy finish instead to match the rest of the CF on the car. Bakus just posted a pic with the wheel powdercoated to eliminate the pinstriping, which is pretty nice.
I tolk Bakus that I kind of like keeping the pinstripping for a Daytona Gray (hard to tell but his looks like Black exterior).
Do you mind showing a pic of the spoiler with the wrap?
I am sorry, have waited for over 12 months (long story from my prior postings) and now want to have my "perfect look".

Nice, I am debating about keeping the pinstripping. Re. the CF wrap, any special instructions to the shop or they will know?
It is quite straightforward, I removed the fins from the wheels 3 bolts per fin. Then the silver bit pops onto the black piano l-shaped fin. So I removed the silver elements, the best and safest way to do this is push and rotate a thin plastic prising tool between the two parts.

Once you have the silver element separate it's really easy to wrap and it will just pop back into place once wrapped.
