I don't think Coach Trim's embossed cavallino rampante is very accurate or well defined. If you really want accuracy here, I'd re-engineer the die that creates the embossed horse.

Dave, looking good. Have you considered painting the rims yourself? If the guy's shop was really messy, why did you bring your car to him in the first place?
