    Cool Alloy Wheel Painting

    Hi people.

    I was just wondering if anybody had painted their standard alloys at all. I want to get mine done in gloss black to match the car, but really don't trust myself doing them, plus I can't be bothered with the aggravation of putting the tyres on and off, leaving the car on jacks at the side of the road, etc.

    Would anybody recommend someone in the Essex area? Or has anybody got a garage and know how to do all 4 of my wheels? If so, let me know. I know a few people who want this done so it might be worth your while.

    Cheers

    Nice one Lee thanks mate. Have you got the 19" snowflakes? They look really good painted. I had the snowflakes on my other Astra, but my new one is just regular spokes.

    Is the guy a pro or does he just work from home?

    We need to find someone who's gonna do it, and do it cheap! I've found a set of my wheels for sale painted gloss black (which is what I wanted) and have provisionally purchased them. I've now put mine up for sale in the for sale section because ideally I need to sell mine at the same time I buy the others!
