Aint been on for a while so thought i would post some updates.
The white wheels idea fell by the wayside.......
I had my heart set on white wheels for months, even though they didn't tie in with any colour scheme on the car. So me and My mate Macd were talking a few weeks ago and the whole "black wheel" saga got brought into conversation. I aint a fan of black wheels as i think they can look cheap and tacky but it got me thinking..........wonder how my Dezent F's would look in black???????
By pure luck i managed to source 2 spare Dezent F's at much cheapness so i thought, even if i mess it up i aint losin any real money. So i called my mate up and we spend the afternoon in his garden shed getting high on paint fumes. We also painted the wheels
Matt black basecoat
Gloss black Topcoat
laquer to finish off
This is the finish we acheived after the above was done.....
Now at this stage i would have had them on the car, however we rubbed them down with wet and dry, then ran compound over it to get rid of some imperfections, repolished with autoglym to finish off before fitting them to the car. They came out looking like this......(sorry it was night time when we got done)
I now think black wheels are growing on me, just deciding on graphics to complete them and job's a good 'un
Sorry for the double pic but i think that this pic makes it look lary as ****
Also the Bilstein setup is now on the car, bit disappointed the front didn't go down a bit more but the back is slammed. So next i am ordering 60mm front springs to bring it down more. I also have fitted dealer sport badges on both front doors, however i now think they look a bit bright for the colour scheme of the car.....but for now they are staying
Anyway here is some day shots of how she sits today. Wind deflectors now ordered and will be fitted next week sometime.
****UPDATED DAY PICS****
Turned out a lot better than i ever though they would.
The tyres need cleaned now to get rid of the compound and polish, mouldings back to blacked and the whole car polished, that's next weekend
