Heres the link to a Merkur which i picked up almost two years ago. I was wondering what everyone thought of how it's turning out.

Yes, it is, and I like what you've done with the graphics, too-- not what you see every day. Keep it up, and keep us posted! 8)

I was thinking of sanding my rims down and having them painted white.

Pretty cool looking paint man. Id sand the wheels and paint them silver or black. Or just get some "real" wheels.

Yeah I don't know if I like the silver look, I mean yeah its original and everything but sometimes a change is nice. I've seen them black before I'm not a fan of black rims, you got the black rim black tire, then if the tire isn't as dark as the rim you got two different blacks right next to each other..... just not my thing.
