I picked up a Bburago Viper RT/10 for only 5 euros a few days ago. The red paint wasn't in too good condition, so I decided to give it a fresh paintjob.
Went to the shop and well, a fresh color it is! :giggle

Any suggestions on what kind of wheels I can put on it?

I call it 'The Snake' :lol

That looks great Rico! :cheers

How about the wheels from the current gen Viper? Maybe the Maistos? There is a 1:1 running around here with newer wheels and it looks good.

Thats a super paint job Rico. Reminds me of the first Viper I seen in the pages of a local car mag way back in 1993. It was of a green Viper at the Dubai motor show.
Five minutes and still the pic has not opened up on my comp. I would request you to please keep the size within 100KB. I am :pullhair for the pic to open.

That colour reminds me of an apple. The quality of the paintjob looks fanastic my friend from the Netherlands.

:iagree with everyone. That color is really nice. Great job, Rico! :nicejob

As for the wheels, can they only be from a Bburago?

Nice colour Rico...its very , errrmmmm , green :giggle

You sure wont miss that one in the dark , very well done :cheers

Personally I would take the easy route and use some Bburago Viper GTS rims , the chrome would look nice against the colour .

That paint looks so perfect on the Viper, very beautiful job :310 :cheers

Like acisne sad, the SRT-10 wheels will look great on it, they are shiney and with that color it will fit well



But the current wheels look not bad too

Superb paint job Rico! :danbana Looks awesome!
Very good quality too, as it seems!
The wheels maybe would look good in a gunmetal color, would make the car look evil! Maybe from an SRT-10 yeah, or the GTS, as said before.

Funny...

I actually bought the car Rico shows in the first post here...
The paint still looks very very cool!

Maybe I'll try to do something with the wheels.

Instead of replacing the rims, why not just paint them?

Excuse my crappy Photo Shopping, but I think you get the idea. The color you paint the rims should match the body color.
