    White Lip ?

    My polished lip on my wheels aint looking as good as they used to thanks to lovly road conditions thats all 4 wheels have stonechips in the lip and are starting to rust

    Anyways the idea i was having was to put some white vinyl over the polished lip? Not sure if this would work or not ?

    and how hard waring would it be ?

    heres a pic of the car to help with some making of minds

    it would be easier to mask the rest of the wheel off and spray them white. Vinyl on a curved surface is a nightmare to get flat. Personally I would paint the rim black. That way it doesnt matter if you overspray as its the same colour anyway and the lip matches the wheels
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    i know it will get nice n dirty but the car is normally washed at least once a week anyways

    any1 have a rough idea on cost of getting the lip sprayed then ? im guessing about £20-£30 a wheel since most places are £40 a wheel for a full refurb?

    I have spare skirts in my garage but was taking faaaaaarrrr to long to sad so gave up and never got back to it yet lol
