Wheels, wheels, deals...

on Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:03 pm
My wheels are free of nasty scrapes and curbing. The near side wheels look t have had a quick spray of paint, probably during prep when it was for sale. But there is quite a bit of overspray in the barrel of the wheel - there are also a couple of drips where they were sprayed.

On the other side there is generally less paint; almost as if they forgot the quick blast of silver paint! There is a tiny bit of flaking on the front wheel. There is a small amount of pitting into the spokes - not much, but it does catch the brake dust.


LK - did you have your wheels dipped and striped before painting the other week; if so what sort of price did you pay?

I'm not sure whether to try to get the barrels sorted out, and a quick top coat, or the full monty.....

I went somewhere that was recommended to me ... and they had a deal on.

Most seem between £300 - £400.

Worth it .... nice to have nice fresh new alloys.

Anyone recall when I got the Mercedes E320 wagon wheels totally resprayed?

Think I payed about 320 quid (deal) and they were astounding Cool

I was so pleased.... Wish I hadn't sold that old battle bus, I did so much only to sell it to an idiot who kept it til the MOT ran out. Worra cuuuunt! Evil or Very Mad
