    refurb in progress!

    well finaly got round to getting some pics on my comp.
    i brought these wheels from lloyd on here, he had them on his silver coupe?? anyways got them and they looked in a lil bit of a bad way to say the least. so my first job was to get the 2 tryes they came with and valves weights ect taken off. and this is what in was left with.


    as you can see, very poorly lol.

    but, after a quick 3 day visit to my local blasters, they came back looking like this!

    a damn site better lol...
    so next on the agender is to fill in any lil marks,dents and scrapes, the main ones are around the rims, will be useing metal putty stuff from wilcos for this as is awsom stuff, very hard wareing and never let me down yet. for the scuffs on the spokes ect any filler will do but its just as easy to use the metal stuff as it bonds really well.
    will post some more pics once this has been done, hopefully in the week at some point. then the fun bit begins, primer, spray and clear coat! cant wait.
    the only problem im haveing is chooseing a color! cant decide so all opinons very welcome! these will be going on my sport, which is silver!

    anyways will update wen i done some more.
    now on my 7th vaux and its a van baby!!!

    Good progress, i reckon keep the alloy silver if the car is silver, as darker wheels on silver cars look wrong IMO.
