    Wheel refurbishing pics, 56k warning

    As a lot of you know I've used a guy in Scunthorpe to refurb my 18" Mk5 "Penta" wheels. He's done them in a blend of shadow chrome and titanium and the finish is great. I've asked him to send me a few pics of other finishes he can do and tonight I got quite a few, some are very garish but some are quite interesting, personnally none are to my taste but they may appeal to others and it may just spark off an idea for a different finish for someone else. I've already asked about having part of the the wheel done in chrome paint and part in a more othordox finish but it's not possible, it's either all standard finish or all chrome.





    I've personally never seen flip chrome paint on a wheel before

    some of those look well smart, but imo would only suit certain styles of car

    there is a place in portsmouth.. custom coatings.. who can do all that sort of trickery.

    The photos do it no justice... I could imagine a car painted in a tinted chrome would like stunning
