mb tko custom center caps I made...

I ordered my wheels and tires and still waiting for my Crush to come in. So while I wait I made some center caps for my new wheels. Hated the plastic junk that came with them. Just cant decide on color. I powdercoated them black but then I took one of them and shot orange flake over it,looks awesome in the sun just not sure I like it. Is it to "mall crawler" ?

They are cast from 356 aluminum. To make other styles I'd need a pattern for them. I made this pattern,started with lots of bondo.
