I made sort of a concept of what i'm looking to do with my own Solstice. I have the wheels, lowering springs, Duraflex fenders, and i'm currently tracking down the top. I design a lot of vehicle wraps but I've never had the chance to wrap one myself. I chose 3M Matte Blue Metallic for this concept, but I haven't landed on a color just yet.

I'd love to be able to photo shop to put two different sets of wheels on to see how they look

Looks good, though I'd want to tuck the wheels up higher for a Euro/Asian slammed stance/GXP front fascia/Norms splitter/polished wheels/painted calibers.

What other wheels?

That looks pretty sick...I'd be interested in low profile tires and a more aggressive stance.....i.e.....dumped!!!
I tried to be accurate with the amount of drop i'm looking to get with a set of Kappasphere springs and the 19x10 & 18.5 wheel combo

Just for the conversation, this is from almost three years ago I think.
And then this one, almost done...
On this........
It's a good looking top, the side windows are what threw me off. Plus the price will be too high once you add the windows, if Norm ever finishes them for production.

Here are a few other colors:

Orange or green. For some reason, kappas can really pull off that camo green color really really well.
Since my wheels are black, i'm definitely not feeling the orange.. too Halloween like. The green is a close second to the blue or red. I really like it but I don't want to bite off the TJIN Solstice. I was hoping for it to stand out more

You don't have to photo-shop for wheels. Just go to Tirerack and use their app. They have a Solstice you can color as you wish, then add whatever wheels they have in stock. Pretty cool app actually. I've done it for all my cars. Still think the wheels I have are the best ones on a Sol.

I wrapped my EDAG hood and I am mostly happy with it. The only suggestion I have(Sorry if you know this already) is to have 4 people. Do not let it fold in on itself or you will get discolorations in the wrap(Folding in on itself, pulling apart, then stretching) and glue buildup. I am happy with my top for now but will be wrapping it again in a couple months when the temp in AZ cools down. I purchased my wrap from Amazon

Amazon.com: 5ft x 6ft (30 Sq/ft) 3M MATTE Black M12 Scotchprint Car Wrap Vinyl Film 1080 Series: Automotive

It was the good quality 3M wrap and at only $70 to cover the whole EDAG roof was not bad.

I would like to wrap my whole vehicle and I would estimate I would need about 4-6 of those listed above to fully cover. So a $420 complete wrap cost isn't bad.

About Color - I am really liking the Mercedes Matte Gunmetal(or very dark Silver) Or a Matte White.

This version might not be your cup of tea, but I decided to do a gloss lime green. I was also thinking about a nice bike rack on top, but I did like the idea of having more "trunk" space with the roof box. Hopefully I can make some actual progress to a real Solstice soon.
