'french' upgrade for the e34

Just picked these up the other day. I'm looking to find a place to get them 3M wrapped, or something similar to protect them before i install them. what do you think?

When is the last time you drove that car? The dust looks about the same level as my E34.

when you put "french" upgrade in the title I was expecting a downgrade with something with less balls.

I guess its hard to tell, but the car is on stands. Ive been doing a bunch of maintenance to it over the past month. and for the past few weeks ive been waiting on tranny and diff oil from a friend, who can get me it for nothing. I also had my rims refinished, and new rubber installed. They should be ready shortly.

I think i might try a different bulb aswell, Everyone seems to have those nokyan (sp?) halogens. If they make an H1 i might try that. the Hella Yellowstars were waaay to expensive.

Can you post up a pic of the rims before and after the refinishing?

Where did you get them done?
