    Just finished refurbing my alloys. AT LAST!!!!

    Hi Everyone

    Well its taken 2 1/2 days to do but i have just finished refurbing the alloys i got last week off ebay for £160. They aren't anywhere near perfect but they are ALOT better than they were. One of the wheels was kerbed 90% of the way round and the others were all kerbed approx 50%. Unfortuneatly i didnt get any close up before pictures as i just wanted to get on and do it.

    Now for some pictures.

    This is what my car looked like 2 weeks ago:



    Heres what it looked like last weekend with the new alloys but not refurbed:



    Now heres what it looks like now:





    Now a close up of one:



    The alloys are painted Ford Polaris Grey if anyone was wondering.

    All comments and constructive opinions welcome.
    For free hugs PM me.

    For sex, pm cabriomatt.
