    Quick wash this afternoon







    Also meant to say spot the price that was rung through for the refurb, stranglely it likely would have declined!



    Cheers

    Would have wanted a lot more than the wheel refurb for that.

    Now THAT is looking pretty damn good Colin, wheels look awesome.

    Wheel pro do a great job and do work for the dealers in the area, used them myself in the past too.

    +1 on Jimbo's comments though, gotta get those rear calipers done to complete the look.

    One other thing Colin, a suggestion. You may want to consider getting rid of the locking wheel nuts that have caused so many issues ( could be the undoing of your lovely freshly refurbed new wheels )

    Car is looking gorgeous on the drive

    Pretty pleased with them Jim . Yes I do definitely need to get the rear callipers painted the same as the fronts, the fronts were a priority at the time as they were a bit rusty, simply ran out of time though this might give me a wee nudge...

    Cheers

    They look great.

    I did mine a couple of months back. Like you said. From a distance they looked fine, but up close they really were annoying!

    I did them myself though. End result looked pretty good.......
