    A sneak preview....

    ....of my wheels. Picked them up yesterday and this morning I went aand bought the bolts to fit to them, all 68 of them! I wasn't buying the Mercedes benz chrome ones so i went to the local engineers merchants and got 70 high tensile stainless countersunk allen bolts.

    Also a couple of shots of the centre caps, having them painted has softened the edges of the 'B' logo so maybe i'll have to upgrade from the plastic ones to the metal ones.

    tomorrow i'm gonna start applying the umpteen layers of Poorboys wheel sealant, after i've cleaned them and LimePrimed them.

    The tyres aren't arriving until monday. Ant the centre caps are a shite fit so they may need a small strip of trim tape to hold them in place

    looks good but think the effect of them might be lost due them being black and just looking like any other black wheel from a distance rather than the in your face effect of silver, saying that though they will look good on the car.
